Trivia

There were 120 "foodimals" made for the movie but only 39 made it to the final film. One of the foodimals that didn't make the movie was a fire-breathing T. rex S'more Monster with a marshmallow body, graham-cracker mouth and chocolate teeth. See more »

Goofs

In the beginning of the movie, Chester V tells the TV audience that his first invention was the "humble food bar". Later in the movie, in Flint's broken-down lab, he explains to Flint that he invented his "anti-wedgie underwear" when he was only 3. In the TV show, Chester was obviously a young teenager.

Animation is good but it's a sequel that wasn't really needed
25 October 2013 | by (England) – See all my reviews

'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2' was yet another sequel to be released in 2013. The first one was a good solid animated film, not the best but it was different and I liked it. I didn't watch this with high expectations because the 1st one was just a good 7/10.

As in the first film, the animation is excellent with lots of bright colours etc. Characters are well designed just the same as the 1st. Everything looks good. The voices are mostly the same but it's a shame Mr.T didn't return to voice Earl Devereaux.

There are some funny moments throughout the film but the storyline in general just wasn't as good as the 1st. The original setting has changed because Flint's machine is still running and the town is being over run with food-animal hybrids. This was just a bit silly in general and didn't have the magic of the 1st film.

Overall it was just a bit unnecessary and a sequel that wasn't really needed. The title could've been more imaginative as well. I found it to be much like 'Despicable Me 2' where it was OK to watch for the 1st hour but then I was getting bored where it was just tedious. It's OK for a one time watch but the first one is definitely better. I'm sure the youngsters will enjoy it but the first one was more of a film that all ages could at least enjoy in full.

Also if Chester V is Flint's hero, why wasn't this mentioned in the first film?

5/10.
