"Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2," is the latest animated sequel from Sony Animated Pictures. Filled with another avalanche of pun-tastically fun food humor, 'Cloudy 2' revisits impressive visuals, quirky characters, and quirkier story lines. From a technical standpoint, Sony gets high marks. Every shot was beautifully crafted and rendered to perfection. Poking fun at its own outlandish origins, super trendy San Francisco Bay Area tech companies, and its less than plausible plot, 'Cloudy 2' is a light hearted and fun film, overflowing with entertaining moments. Fans of the "Jurassic Park" franchise may appreciate several of the film's moments of homage. Despite the most pleasant aspects of this film, with so much of its plot dependent on a previously established plot line, the excitement of the first film isn't as omnipresent as it was in the original. Even with a constant flow of creative, cute, and convoluted characters, the film falls well within the realm of the less successful sequel. All the same, "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" is entertaining and well worth the price of admission.
