Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 picks up where Sony Pictures Animation's 2009 hit comedy left off. Inventor Flint Lockwood's genius is finally being recognized as he's invited by his idol Chester V to join The Live Corp Company, where the best and brightest inventors in the world create technologies for the betterment of mankind. Chester's right-hand-gal - and one of his greatest inventions - is Barb, a highly evolved orangutan with a human brain. It's always been Flint's dream to be recognized as a great inventor, but everything changes when he discovers that his most infamous machine (which turns water into food) is still operating and is now creating food-animal hybrids - 'foodimals!' With the fate of humanity in his hands, Chester sends Flint and his friends on a dangerously delicious mission - to battle hungry tacodiles, shrimpanzees, hippotatomuses, cheespiders and other food creatures to save the world again!

Our Review of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs:
We received the first Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs movie on Blu-ray to help us get ready for the sequel. I remember taking DD to see this movie back in 2009 and she really enjoyed watching it. Since the G man has never seen the movie before, it was great watching it again with him. Since he is only 2 years old, I was not sure if he could understand the movie or sit through it for that matter. However, we watched it together as a family and he absolutely loved it. Afterwards, we watched the trailer for Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 on my laptop. My kids are so excited about the giant taco, hamburg, watermelon and strawberries. They can't wait to see it in the theater, so we promise the kids we will be taking them to see it when it comes out. Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 will be playing at theaters near you starting September 27, 2013. My husband and I will be taking our kids to go see it. We hope you will too!
