Whatever this movie's flaws, I can't help but feel like they get overridden by the sheer unadulterated fun and joy the movie-makers injected into their fictional world. Many of the puns make me smile, or even laugh, every single time (the leek jokes, in particular, get me, and yes, I'm a dad). The silliness and humor make for a really enjoyable experience for kids, with such a colorful, wild world, with colorful, wild characters. Underneath, for the adults, I found it to be a really interesting critique of the massive tech firms, and how the veneer of a love of science and invention actually covers a corporate world that simply exploits the real inventors in the name of small iterations to popular products.

Its clear SONY PICTURES ANIMATION™ rode the name of Cloudy W/A Chance of Meatballs success to fool and hype the consumers with its sequel. Well... not me. Intro had reclips from the 1st to buy time length for the film. Character Development was horrible! Voiceovers replaced. Story Plot unobvious. Recycled characters from the 1st, had no point being in the movie as they barely talked. No consistency with plot, sped up intro, char dev. uncared for. (Summary) Don't buy, rent, or pirate it. Its that bad...

It doesn't look too interesting, and the plot is not exciting enough. It's sort of obvious in a way, like "Of course the machine made food/animal hybrids." I think SONY should have spent a couple more months on the film.
