    Grown ups, take heart - there is PLENTY in this movie to keep you entertained too!
    "Cloudy 2" is chock-full of both subtle and obvious visual references to blockbuster movies you've seen, and spotting them is a wonderfully entertaining game. Even the quick-cut clips that made up the trailer gave me a sense that a lot of "Jurassic Park" and "Lost World" moments would pop up, and I wasn't mistaken; imagery reminiscent of those two movies are particularly common. I noticed at least one hilarious "King Kong" moment, and there were lots more movies pilfered for ideas. In many cases something just seemed familiar though I couldn't quite place it, and I have a feeling there are many more that I completely missed but will probably slap myself over later when I'm rewatching the DVD (and I WILL get the DVD, and probably watch it more than a good 95% of the target audience). (I'm 40, male, and neither have nor want kids, by the way.)
    And that's without even considering the movie itself. If an adventure on an island of bizarre food-monsters where the villain is essentially an evil Steve Jobs isn't enough story to keep you entertained, the performances of James Caan and Mr. T alone are worth at least the price of a matinee ticket. I greatly enjoyed this movies predecessor (on DVD, repeatedly...), but while my initial impression is that this one is ALMOST as good, I haven't seen enough of it to judge the subtleties. Time will tell; this may be one of those few sequels to actually outdo a predecessor that was already pretty darn good.
    (If, on the other hand, you don't like movies, then you won't get much out of this and might as well skip it.)

    I have a little nephew and he begged me to take him to see this movie because he loved the first one. Even though I am a medical student and time is very precious to me, I am also a great aunt and I took my favorite little person to see this film. I am glad to say that we both had a great time watching this movie and I recommend seeing it on the big screen with your whole family. The film was really entertaining and I also found it to be quite funny. The characters were developed and the voice-overs were just perfect. Overall, it is a fun movie to see with your family and I think it is worth your time and money.

    I was having a particularly blue day and decided to treat myself with a movie, hoping that it will lift my mood. I chose this film because I have seen the previous one and I really liked it, therefore I hoped that this one will be as good if not better. I am glad to say that it did not disappoint me and I had a great time watching this film. I saw the movie in 3D and I think it was worth the extra cash because it added to my whole experience. The tone of the film was zany, the pace was fast and the characters were well developed and likable. Overall, I highly recommend seeing this movie in the theaters, you will not be disappointed.

    I absolutely loved the previous film and I was really excited to see the latest film, so I guess my expectations were pretty high. I thought the film was pretty good but it was not as good as the first one. It was not as charming or as breezy as the first film but it still entertained me so I cannot complain. I enjoyed the tone of this film and I thought that the pace was fast and I liked that. The film was also pretty amazing visually and I thought that voice-over actors did a great job. Overall, I had fun watching this film and I think it is worth seeing it on the big screen.

    I took my little niece to see this film and we both left the theater very satisfied. I have not seen the previous film but I was able to understand the story and enjoy my experience. I liked the tone of the film and the pace was really fast so it is suitable for little children who have a short attention span. The film is beautiful visually and I liked all of the characters, the voice-overs were great. It is not an exceptional film for children but it is entertaining , fun and it keeps the attention of the little ones as well as the parents. Overall, I think this movie is worth your time and money.
