Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2
Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 is a 2013 American 3D computer-animated comic science fiction film produced by Sony Pictures Animation and distributed by Columbia Pictures. The film is the sequel to the 2009 film Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, which was loosely based on Judi and Ron Barrett's book of the same name. It was directed by Cody Cameron and Kris Pearn, produced by Kirk Bodyfelt, and executive produced by the directors of the first film, Phil Lord and Chris Miller. The film was released on September 27, 2013.
The screenplay was written by John Francis Daley, Jonathan Goldstein, and Erica Rivinoja, and it is based on an original idea, and not on Pickles to Pittsburgh, Barrett's follow-up book. Cloudy 2 continues right after the first film, where a food-making satellite gets out of control, but its creator, young inventor Flint, and his friends, eventually manage to stop it. In the sequel, Flint and his friends are forced to leave their home town, but when the food machine awakens, this time producing sentient food beasts, they must return to save the world.
Flintː You know, actually, It's a very important job--
Samː [babbles] You karate-chopped Manny's stew out Brent's handsǃ You hurt their feelings.
- Brent: What is that?
- Manny: Tacodile! Supreme!
- Flint Lockwood: There's a leak in the boat!
[camera pans down to an actual leek who starts screaming in panic]
- Tim Lockwood: I don't get vests. What, is it winter in your torso but summer in your arms?
- Earl Devereaux: I'm not a barista! I'm a police-sta!
- Earl Devereaux: [as a tear down his cheek] It's enough to make a grown man cry. But not this man! Get back in there, tear!
[sucks tear back into eye]
- Earl Devereaux: I'm glad you're still wearing that diaper!
- Brent: I wish I've brought a fresh one!
- Tim Lockwood: They came here to help you, and so we are. So let us.
