Kyle Smith “Cloudy 2? Way Underdone” Is One Heaping Dose of Spicy

“‘Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2’ way underdone” finds Kyle Smith revolting at the taste of this film. This reviewer begins writing with a kind of sour sass that immediately wafts a long and lingering sent of negativity towards it’s readers. Claiming the film holds lifeless, obvious, and badly punny jokes, Smith himself inserts the same material within his own review.

He mocks the puns by providing puns himself. There is something strangely sadistic in complaining about the meal provided, and turning around to serve the same dish.

If there was a question about what these jokes could possibly be, Smith offers many examples of direct quotes from the film and throws in his just-desserts by providing major spoilers as an afterthought. Smith did not want his reader’s to come to the table without proper preparation, and in so doing left no surprises for what he believed to be a bare boned piece of cinematic creation.  

As this film was so aptly described as something no one would ever sink their teeth into, Smith concludes his review by throwing in one last dollop of Tabasco sauce to the mix. He leaves the reader with the spice of his sarcasm by cutting down the writers. This review is hot, fiery, and slightly burnt out of shape written by a reviewer with a spicy attitude.
