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.
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?
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.
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.
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
