Here is an hour and thirty minutes of my life that I will not get back.

This movie was not all out fun like its predecessor, there were no surprises in the area of inventions like we saw in the first, all we have is a colorful, dull movie that just went on and on until it ended. This computer animated science film is the 9thanimation to be produced by Sony Pictures Animations.

One thing you may like in this part two of Cloudy with a chance of meatballs is that the movie actually kicked off from where the first one stopped.

In the prequel Flint and his friends finally put the FLDSMDFR ("Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator") out of commission, as the machine went haywire sending down large chunks of food none stop, all because the mayor of the town greed, which was because his town was now a tourist attraction.
Flint and his friends Sam, her cameraman, Manny, Steve and Brent, now had to jet out to the FLDSMDFR in the sky to put out its lights.

In this animation, Flint’s idol Chester V was contracted to clean up the mess that FLDSMDFR made. Chester V then invites Flint to come join him in his company The Live Corp, a place where all the best investors reside.

While there Chester V asked Flint to help him find FLDSMDFR so that they can put it out of order. Flint and his crew from the previous movie headed back to town to discover that the food created by FLDSMDFR have now mutated and have a life of their own.

Like its predecessor the movie is loosely based on Judi and Ron Barrett's book of the same name and most of the previous cast except Mr. T reprised their roles.

In the end of this movie, I was wondering why Sony decided to make this sequel in the first place, as not every “good” movie (good in the sense that it made money for the studio) deserves a sequel. It was not captivating enough as the first and the thrill that I got when experiencing the characters behaviours in the first movie was watered down with too much talk between Flint and Chester V.

I don’t see how an adult will enjoy this movie, as it was just too darn colorful, and full of too many instances that will thrill only kids.
