The first 'Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs' was a surprise charmer, and though 'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' doesn't have the same underdog factor, it still looks like a great deal of fun. That is, if you have an appetite for food, jokes and puns.
Bill Hader and Anna Faris return to voice Flint Lockwood and Sam Sparks, respectively, and they must go back to Swallow Falls to turn off his magical food-making machine once their former dinners become sentient and plot to invade the rest of the world. They're joined by Terry Crews, Will Forte, Neil Patrick Harris, and Andy Samberg in their exploration of the island.
Basically, this looks like 'Jurassic Pork'... er 'Park,' but with food jokes a-plenty. It's the sort of film that if you don't giggle at the "leek in the boat" gag, it probably won't work for you, but this looks like more inspired silliness.
'Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2' will be hitting theaters September 27. Here's the film's synopsis:
In the wake of the disastrous food storm at the end of the first movie, Flint Lockwood and friends are forced to leave their town of Swallow Falls. But when it is discovered that sentient food beasts have overrun the island, they are asked to return to save the world…again.
