Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2
I hope you guys love animation movies, because I’m a huge fan of those! So sit back and relax while you’re reading my own little review on “Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2”!!
The first Cloudy was amazing. Every time I watch it, I laugh out loud for the whole movie. Who can’t love Steve, the amazing monkey voiced by Neil Patrick Harris (yes, our national Barney). So when I learned there was a second one, I was pretty excited to go and see it!
With no big surprise, I laughed out loud for this one too. It is an amazing animation movie, and it is as funny for kids than for grown-ups (yeah, I don’t say adult, I don’t call myself an adult…). The drawings are really pretty and the mix of food and animals are such a great idea! But watch out, if you don’t like puns, this movie is fuuuull of bad/funny puns. My best example is the leak in the boat. Leak = leek … Yeah, but I swear it will be funny when you’ll watch it!
As I said, I’m a kid at heart. And when Steve actually “signed” a paper with is poop, I was laughing so hard… I love you Steve, you’re the best.
I really like the “bad guy” too. He is clearly a big caricature of Steve Jobs, and they did it so well! The kind of bald guy with distinct shirt that he wears. That logo and how the fans are actually acting when he was there… Everything was perfectly done! I am not the biggest Steve Jobs fan, so I found it real funny, but fans that would only see the first degree of this joke will be pissed… Anyway, you have to watch it with a lighted heart.
I also really like the heart of the movie. The bad guys want to take new species for a special product and categorizing them as “bad”, “mean” and “useless”. If you dig pretty far, you can see a lot of things in our society right now and it does makes you think a bit… But then you remember that Steve used his poop to sign, and you laugh and forget everything bad in your life…
The only thing I wasn’t a huge fan of was the ending… No spoilers, because I’m a nice person! I’m just going to say that it is very predictable (it’s a kid movie, remember) and, duh, the good ones win. And they won pretty easily too… It is a bit deceiving… But anyway, Steve is funny. I wasn’t sure I told you enough about Steve…
Oh and there’s a monkey named Barb and she’s pretty ugly… But she’s still funny.
In conclusion, I have to say that it is a really funny movie, and if you do like animation movies, you might really appreciate the movie too!! Or if you have a kid/niece/nephew/whatever young person in your entourage, and they want to see it, GO SEE IT WITH THEM! Or go alone, nobody’s judging you! At least, I’m not judging you… I’m 20 and I went to see it with my 23 years old sister, so whatever…
I give Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2 a biiiiig
8.5 meatballs out of 10
And it is very close to the 9… But since I never give 10/10 for movies, 8.5 is a very good movie in my opinion.
