Chris Knight is a comic genius of gastronomical proportions in his latest review, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, reviewed: Somewhat stale sequel is mostly sizzle, no steak.”

Sizzle, no steak opens up with a clever pun on the title, and the wording is divine. The food reference, although hilarious, has been employed far too often in this week’s influx of reviews. The modern reader, searching the internet for fresh ideas, and out-of-the box insight, may demand more in exchange for their time and attention.  

Knight moves on with a superb combination of paragraphs that will please the reader and keep them interested in the gastronomic tale. The prose of Sizzle, no steak is entertaining, and peppered with jokes that will make one aware of their beloved bathrooms’ location. The key to an outstanding plot description via humor is comedic timing, and Knight, a true gentleman of the craft, executes the task perfectly.

The “ha-ha” theme of the opening paragraph is consistent with the rest of the review, and readers looking for a relaxing, temporary escape from their routine should be thoroughly satisfied.   

Chris Knight is Knight of the Highest Order and succeeds with valiant commitment to the gastronomic theme. He owns his work with honor, and the reader will most certainly respect him for that.  Sizzle, no steak is an entertaining read and smart from beginning to end.
