There are some movies that are good, but just don’t cry out to be analyzed. Sometimes I enjoy a movie, but have very little to say about it. I enjoyed “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2”. It wasn’t as good as the original, which I love and can’t say enough about. This one tries to recapture some of the magic from the original. It does to some degree. Every once and a while I dips a little too often into the same well of jokes. It works better when it’s creating new jokes, instead of just repeating what worked in the original. And… um, well. That’s about it.
