Gable: The unique animated film about cute living foods.


Pete: Animated/Family/Science Fiction

Brigette: Animation/Family

Morgan: Family/Comedy

Gable: Animated/Family/Adventure

What did you think of the poster and/or credit art?

Brigette: The end credits art is AWESOME and well worth watching the making of extra on the DVD.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Pete: Steve because he loves to celebrate.

Brigette: Tim Lockwood because under his tough exterior he was a big softie.

Morgan: Tim because he was kind and cared a lot about his son.

Gable: Barry because he was cute.

Who was your favorite foodimal?

Morgan & Gable: Marshmallows (we know it’s not technically a foodimal, but they were super cute!)


Who was your least favorite character and why?

Pete: Chester V because he was LIVE backwards.

Brigette: Chester V because he thought only of himself.

Morgan: Probably Chester V because he was shifty.

Gable: Brent because he was an idiot.

Did it grab you immediately or did it take a while?

Pete: Immediate attention grabber after the initial minute or two of re-capping of the first film.

Brigette: It was like seeing an old friend again; comfortable and easy to settle in with.

Morgan: It grabbed me immediately and had me the entire way.

Gable: The re-cap was a bit annoying, although I forgot most of the previous film, but the rest was very intense.

Favorite quote:

Pete: “CELEBRATE!” – Steve

Brigette: “I don’t get vests. Is it winter on your torso and summer on your arms?” – Tim Lockwood

Morgan: “There’s a leek in my boat!” – Tim

What would you change?

Brigette: There was a little recap at the start which is a pet peeve of mine, so I would have cut that part out. I figure if you haven’t seen the first of a series clearly marked with a 2, then it’s your own fault if you don’t know what’s going on.

How was the soundtrack?

Brigette: Fun! Here are a few of the songs from the film:
New by Paul McCartney
Music Box Dancer by Frank Mills
Yummy Yummy Yummy by Ohio Express
La Da Dee by Cody Simpson

Is it part of a series and have you seen the rest of the series?

Brigette: We have watched the first film, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs, and really enjoyed it. But I liked this one even more.

Morgan: We have watched “Cloud With a Chance of Meatballs,” but I prefer this one, especially because it has Foodimals.

How was the ending?

Brigette: Happy but not sappy.

Morgan: Wonderful!

Gable: Sweet and happy – remember to hang out for the cool end credits!

What was the moral of the story?

Pete: Friends and family are the most important things you can have.

Brigette: Good friends enhance your life, not distract you from it.

Morgan: Sometimes you just need to let things be.

Gable: A friend will help you sometimes but a real friend will help you, even if you think you don’t need help.

Who would you recommend it to?

Pete: Anyone who likes to play with their food whilst animal watching.

Brigette: Vegans.

Morgan: People who like foodscapes.

Gable: People who enjoy making, looking at, or eating foodscapes, people who think berries are cute, people who like on-the-edge-of-your-seats films, and people who like drawn credits. S
