Every book is a new journey to embark on. I mainly read romances, but I dabble in other genres too.
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
Source: Watched in theater
Originally released: 2013
Cute movie but not as good as the first. I thought the first movie had a lot of heart and was very clever, and I connected to Flint and Sam with their geekiness and awkwardness.
With Meatballs 2, the focus was more on the food island rather than on the main characters like Flint and Sam. A lot of the jokes were food puns which I thought were funny but not creative. The food animals were amusing. One of them was a strawberry which was named Barry by Sam. I laughed hard when Barry translated Flint's speech for the food creatures, because Barry's translation was pure gibberish and babbling.
The villain was cliche, but I found his wiggly arm movements funny.
The orangutan character didn't feel necessary to me. The joke that she keeps being incorrectly called a monkey was tiring.
Animation was wonderful. So colorful!
I wasn't too disappointed in this movie. I'll be getting this on DVD when I can. (I still need the first one too.) It just didn't captured me like the first did.
RATING: 3.5 out of 5
