Right. Most people will probably know about Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs (Wow, that’s a mouthful. (No awful Pun intended.)), but for those who don’t, I’ll give a (very) quick recap of the basic storyline:
Flint Lockwood, young inventor, creates a machine to turn water into food: the FLINSDMFR. FLINT- FLINMRD- FLMD- FISMD- FISBDR- FFLLIINNSSDDMMFFRR… FLINSDMFR. FLINSDMFR. Okay. He accidently sends it into the atmosphere, causing it to rain food, however after time the machine goes haywire, making it create food hurricanes and suchlike. He destroys (hold onto that thought) the machine, saving the world from destruction. …That’s it.
And then in THIS Movie, we find out the machine survived, and is bringing food to life. I’m talking Shrimpanzees and Living Pickles here. And Tacodiles. And Cheese Spiders.
Now, speaking from a neutral standpoint, it probably wasn’t a very good movie and was kind of daft, but I liked it anyway. It was fun, hilarious, and enjoyable to watch, and I think that’s what really counts to me. It was a very interesting Idea, too, and the creativity definitely deserves some mention, and it even had one of those easter egg thingies in it. NOW I’M GOING TO HAVE TO WATCH THE MOVIE AGAIN TO SEE EVERY SHOT WITH THE SASQUASH IN IT-
Ahem. While it might be a rather silly idea, it was a very well executed idea, to the point where I really liked it. It’ll make a nice family film, it’s good for a laugh, and it’s definitely worth a watch, especially if you liked the first one.
So, the overall rating? Well, I kind of have mixed feelings on this one… Eh, 9/10. I really liked it.
