Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2—a good animated film—improves on Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 1.


Young Flint Lockwood (voice of Bridget Hoffman) watches a show about Chester V (voice of Will Forte), a scientist and inventor of food bars for people to eat. An older Flint Lockwood (voice of Bill Hader) tells how he wants to be like Chester V. Then, the screen switches to Flint Lockwood as a young man working on his next invention with Sam Sparks (voice of Ana Faris) and the movie is off and running with its exploration of good versus evil.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Directors Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Phil Lord and Christopher Miller for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Tim Lockwood (voice of James Caan), Brent McHale (voice of Andy Samberg), Manny (voice of Benjamin Bratt), Steve (voice of Neil Patrick Harris), Earl Devereaux (voice of Terry Crews), and Barb (voice of Kristen Schaal).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs 2 is much improved over the first movie in the series.
