As a fan of the first Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs I was unsure where a sequel could go direction wise without feeling forced and as soon as the film began you can see the filmmakers also struggle with this.

 

The story of the film is basically a set-piece for jokes and that is fine for the most part. The film is packed full of food based puns alongside some great animation including the fantastic addition of living food animals or foodimals. The creatures and entire food world they live look fantastic almost like Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on drugs and it is these wonderful visuals which make the film enjoyable.
