(at around 41 mins) Right before the bananostrich stampede, Brent pulls on a pair of jeans (that barely fit him) and says, "My feet are turning purple! Is that bad?" You can see they are actually purple. But a second later. when the bushes behind him start to rumble, you can clearly see his foot, and it is no longer purple. See more »
My name is Flint Lockwood. My whole life I wanted to be a great inventor. Just like my hero.

There's a reference to the movie "When Harry Met Sally" during the end credits. Barry and a female watermelon can be seen together on a movie poster, along with the movie title "When Barry Met Salad". See more »
These films do a great job of really capturing that kids' book feel!
'CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS 2': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)
Sequel to the 2009 hit animated kids' film 'CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS', which was in turn loosely based on the children's book of the same name (by Judi and Ron Barrett). This movie was scripted by John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein, and Erica Rivinoja and is a new idea (not based on the book's sequel 'Pickles to Pittsburgh'). It was directed by Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn and executive produced by the original film's directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller. Actors Bill Hader, Anna Faris, Andy Samberg, James Caan, Neil Patrick Harris, Benjamin Bratt and Will Forte all return as voices (with Terry Crews replacing Mr. T. as the voice of Officer Earl). If you enjoyed the original you're bound to like this movie as well.
The film picks up right where the last one ended with Flint Lockwood (Hader), Sam Sparks (Faris) and the rest of the people of Swallow Falls being relocated to San Franjose, California, so that a big corporation can clean up the food left behind in the storm (from the original movie). The company is lead by Flint's childhood hero Chester V (Forte), a famous inventor. Flint is later asked by Chester V to return to the island in order to help him locate the FLDSMDFR (Flint's invention which caused the food storm). It's now causing food to come to life in Swallow Falls and Chester V is afraid they'll escape the island and threaten the rest of the world. Flint's friends help him on his mission as they learn Chester V may have ulterior motives.
I love the imaginative world created by these movies and think they do a great job of really capturing that kids' book (and cartoon) feel. This one is also a nice homage to the 'JURASSIC PARK' flicks (especially the classic original). I like all of the cast as well, although their talents are somewhat wasted in these films. The characters are likable but the movies aren't really that funny (there are a few good laughs, here and there, in both films though). I'd rate this one about the same as the first; I'm sure they're both a lot of fun for kids (and mildly amusing for adults) but nothing too memorable or special.
