Okay
27 September 2013 | by elrogrrlSee all my reviews

This movie is worth watching if you have kids and they really loved the first one. Over all it is just like the first with a lot of similar gags and leans on the same characters doing the same types of jokes as in the first movie, but just not as well. It's like a pale imitation of the first one without any of the magic that made Cloudy With A Chance Of Meat Balls awesome for the whole family, parents and kids alike or even adults watching it alone just for fun. But even with that it is hard to follow up such a great movie (and I must say I usually don't mind sequels but Cloudy With A Chance Of Meat Balls 2 just sounds stupid to me) and this movie is definitely worth seeing. Maybe not on the big screen but kids will like it, there's enough silliness and fun to keep them watching if not thoroughly entertained for the full eighty minutes or so!
