Movie review score
3.5/5
What’s it about?
Flint Lockwood returns with his cast of zany friends to combat a second wave of killer food. Can he stop the dangers that threaten the whole globe while keeping his friends together and maintaining his relationship with his father? Of course he can. The big question is will it be entertaining?

What did we think?
Dan says: The first Cloudy film was an exceptional piece of cinema. This film takes the characters you loved from the last film and shoe horns them into a second, more whimsical endeavour. Lovers of awful puns will delight in this eye-popping extravaganza but if you want some heart in your story you’re looking at the wrong reanimated corpse.

It’s not unpalatable and there are plenty of laughs but ultimately it feels like someone took some old brioche, truss tomatoes and wagyu beef and turned them into a McDonald’s burger.
