Much more effort involved than your typical "animated kid's movie sequel made in the 21st century". The story might not be quite as straightforward as the first _Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs_, but it ups the fantastical quality, making me appreciate it even more. Such a great hangover film. _Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._

Decent watch at best, probably won't watch again, and can't recommend except for younger audiences (possibly with bad taste in humor). Every line in this movie is awful. I'll admit that I got pulled in a couple of times just because we went from horrible to average only to have it punchline in awful again. Don't get me wrong, when I say "awful" it is a just a lot of bad, cringey humor. But it really is like, "okay, they gave us a sequel, but there is NO WAY we're getting a 3rd, let's go ham." I wasn't a big fan of the first one, and creating sentient food is cute, but weirdly problematic from a biological or large-scale morality standpoint. Ultimately the concept of a "potatopotomus" is cute and slightly amusing, but quickly loses steam as part of a story. If you are able to get in a helicopter and get far enough away from everything, there is actually a good story structure there, but just the worst execution.

Trying to follow what is happening in this movie is just not gonna happen, but the visuals are so bright and fun I don't think anyone will care.
