I think at one point “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” was going to be called “Cloudy 2:Revenge of the Leftovers”, but apparently they decided to just go with the good ol fashion numbering system. (It was also supposed to be due in 2014, but I guess they finished it early.) I guess that was the smart play. It’ll let the kids know this is the sequel to 2009’s animated food flick “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs”. You don’t wanna be confusin’ them youngsters, after all, they’re getting dumber every day.
I couldn’t really watch that first movie, though, mostly because seeing food splattering all over the place makes me kind of queasy. I don’t know why. “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2” has more of that food stuff, including lots of food puns. I wonder if the entire movie is one food pun after another? Would be interesting if it was, but I don’t think I’m that lucky.
Flint Lockwood now works at The Live Corp Company for his idol Chester V. But he’s forced to leave his post when he learns that his most infamous machine is still operational and is churning out menacing food-animal hybrids.
“Cloudy 2” (as the kids will be calling it, no doubt) features the voices of Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Will Forte, Neil Patrick Harris, Terry Crews, and Andy Samberg.
