Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2

Rating: 3 stars out of 5

Starring: Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Will Forte

Directed by: Cody Cameron, Kris Pearn

Running time: 95 minutes

Parental guidance: Some frightening scenes

There are all manner of frightening creatures — monsters created by the joining together of food and animals — in the animated film Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2. There are cheeseburgers with French fry legs and sesame seed eyes, out to devour all that stand before them. There are tacodiles, hard-shell Mexican snacks whose wide mouths are stuffed with meat, salsa and, unless you’re alert, you. There are shrimp that chatter through the trees: shrimpanzees. There are Twizzler snakes with vicious heads: apple pie-thons.

My favourite, though, comes both early and late in this anarchic, complicated and colourful movie. “There’s a leek on the boat,” someone says — cut to a scene of a small, walking onion on deck — and in case you missed it, someone says it again an hour later. It’s a pretty good joke, and perhaps the filmmakers thought the repetition wouldn’t be noticed in the general mayhem.

Watch Cloudy Chance of Meatballs 2 Viooz Full Movie That’s right: it’s cloudy with a chance of food puns. A good chance.

CWACOM2 (the movie itself is in love with unpronounceable acronyms) picks up where the original 2009 film left off: young inventor Flint Lockwood (voiced by Bill Hader) has put away the machine that turned water into food and threatened to drown Swallow Falls in falling hamburgers and spaghetti tornadoes.

Now it’s time to clean up the leftovers, and Flint’s childhood hero, science genius Chester V (Will Forte) says he’ll help. In return, Flint is invited to the headquarters of Live Corp. to prove himself as a qualified inventor and become one of the company’s Thinquonauts. I’m only guessing at the spelling, just as I’m only speculating that a Thinquonaut was inspired by the Imagineers of the Disney Company, rivals of Sony Animation that put out this 3-D computer-generated bit of madness.

Flint doesn’t make it, even though he does come up with the celebration-ator, a party in a box. Push a button and it emits cheers, confetti, and a Day-Glo paint that covers everything in spackled neon. It’s a wonderful effect, and if it doesn’t have much to do with anything, then welcome to the club: 3-D computer-generated animation doesn’t have much truck with “sense” and “logic,” but if you want shameless wordplay, you’ve come to the right place.

Eventually, Flint has to return to Swallow Falls to battle the food monsters that may soon learn to swim and attack the Statue of Liberty. The image of a giant burger eating Lady Liberty could be read as a dietary metaphor, but this sequel doesn’t carry the nutritional message of the first film. It’s not about eating right. It’s about thinking of new ways to turn vegetables into creatures. At one stage, a group of sardine-loving pickles learns to fish. “Why?” you ask, and CWACOM2 doesn’t even bother to answer “Why not?” It’s too busy creating dinosaurs out of onion stalks.

Accompanied by his father (James Caan) and friends (Anna Faris, Andy Samberg, Benjamin Bratt and Neil Patrick Harris), Flint returns home to see the devastation of his food experiment and to learn the truth about Chester, friendship, and man-eating cheeseburgers.

It is a complex plot, especially for the younger set, and a few scenes involving the burgers and the tacos could frighten them: there were a few tears and hidden faces at a recent preview, although by the time the anodyne marshmallows make their appearance — cuddling against Flint’s neck and making him giggle — the fraidy-cats seemed mollified. Kids should also enjoy Berry, a walking strawberry that swallows an important computer part and has to be monitored until he passes it in a squirt of jam.

That was a good one too: there are bound to be some hits when you’re bombarded like this. The movie is unnecessarily confounding and a few minutes too long, and what it lacks in comprehensibility it tries to make up for in high spirits and corny food jokes (see what I did there?). Kids will like it because it’s animated. Adults will like it because it’s the kind of movie that includes the opening credit, “Another film by a lot of people.” Bring out the self-aware-inator.
