Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, the 2009 franchise starter, was a lovable tale of an underdog scientist who created an invention of gastronomical brilliance! A machine that could convert water into food, any food and he literally made it rain meatballs. This movie starts where the first left off. Flint Lockwood (voiced by SNL funny man Bill Hader) is called upon by his childhood hero Chester V to join "The LIVE Corp Company" and work for the betterment of humanity. But what Chester really wants is Flint's Invention. The adventure begins when Chester can't find the machine and has to call upon Flint to do it. And when Flint gets back to his island with his friends, he realises that his invention has created a magical world of "Foodimals", with creatures like flamangoes, tacodiles, shrimpanzees and more. Hungry to know what happens next? For that you would have to order a ticket today.
It's the holiday season and what better way to keep the kids happy than a perfectly delectable family fare. It's clean, it's kiddy and it's ready-to-eat entertainment. The 'foodilicious' world created is wondrous and the 'foodimals' are inventive. The very fact that you have a cute little talking strawberry named "Berry" and more than a bucket full of mushy marshmellows swimming around, will leave you craving for more. Characters like Earl (Terry Crews) and Steve(Neil Patrick Harris) are as lovable as ever and keep you giggling at their buffoonery.
The Popcorn Worthiness:
If this were the 'Foodimals' world, the Popcorn might just turn into PopCornisaurs and eat you! Yep, this is film that goes really well with Caramel Popcorn. It's sweet, it's breezy and it's light. But here's the caveat - it's actually the Happy Meal! It's meant to satisfy just kids. If you are an adult looking for something equivalent of the wholesome, intelligent entertainment of animated features like "Finding Nemo" or "Toy Story", then you will be left wanting. There is no real emotional depth to the story and it's just plain fun. Also, there are not too many laugh-out-loud-silly moments like that of "Despicable Me". All in all, if you are bored over the weekend and want to enjoy with kids during the holidays, this is the perfect way to enjoy. It's not really a gourmet delight, but definitely junk food at its best.
