I was not a fan of the first Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs movie so to say my anticipation for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is muted may be a bit of an exaggeration. I really couldn’t care less and I’m not sure I’ll even venture to a screening once the week of September 27 rolls around. However, I’m not the only one in this world and clearly a lot of people liked that first one and maybe you’re one of those people. Maybe the prospect of “foodimals” (food animals) excites you. If so, boy have I got a movie for you because that appears to be the main, if not only, focus of this movie.
Live Corp has been charged with cleaning up the island after Flint’s contraption that turned water into food led to a mess of huge pancakes, pizza slices and, of course, meatballs garnishing the pulverized town in the original film. But in the sequel, the machine is still sputtering away somewhere — only now it’s pumping out living pickles, a walking, gibberish-talking strawberry named Barry, and creatures like the giant, french-fry-legged bacon cheesespider, which lords over the abandon town like a massive cholesterol-spiking tarantula.
