    If you rely on films to keep your kids entertained and distracted for an hour and a half, Meatballs is a masterwork, a visual stunner that manages to break from animation's current 3-D rut.

    What Erica Rivinoja, John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein’s script lacks in lingering nutritional value, it compensates for with amusing food puns. If nothing else, the pic’s zany tone and manic pace are good for a quick-hit sugar high.

    The Hollywood Reporter Michael Rechtshaffen

    It might not possess the robust charm of its 2009 predecessor, but Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 nevertheless gets an amusing boost from a genetically modified, marauding menagerie of Tacodiles, Watermelophants, Sasquashes and assorted other "Foodimals" that have overtaken the once-tranquil island of Swallow Falls.

    Unlike so many sequels, this fun-filled 3D adventure is sure to entertain younger kids but also charm the adults who will be accompanying them to the multiplexes.

    The Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs franchise takes its comic cues from The Muppets and Pee Wee's Playhouse, kids' shows that ripen as their audience matures.

Good movie and great fun by rbhall52
My wife and I saw Cloudy with a chance of meatballs 2 and really enjoyed it. It was fun, silly, uplifting. We saw the first Cloudy with a chance of meatballs movie a few years ago, and I think this one is as good as the first one. If they make another one of these movies, I expect we will see that one as well. The movie did not really go as was expected from the trailer that you see. It went in the opposite direction, which turned out to be a better direction. Your kids will enjoy this movie and will have a lot of laughs watching it.
