Matt Patches Delivers a Smart and Wildy Funny Review in “Cloudy 2”

In response to Matt Patches’s 893‑word review of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 on

By ,

Matt Patches is at it again, folks, and the performance on display in “Review: Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2” is energetic, smart and rich with comedic history. Grab your popcorn and prepare to chuckle.

The opening paragraph is not only vast and plentiful with stylized wordplay, but the opening sentence in particular will undoubtedly be a crowd-pleaser and a tactic that will be studied by other critics for years to come.

The investigative words of Patches grab hold of the early part of the film and places it under arrest like an old-timey cop. The tone is light, as the critic understands the ploy of the sequel, and the overall intentions which come in over-the-top gags with non-stop dialogue.

The overall examination of the plot is noteworthy as Patches dissects the characters and jokes with remarkable writing. Although the critic will make the reader laugh, his intellect also shines through. The pleasant presentation of the review makes this one a triple threat.

Perhaps the most unique aspect of Patches’ review is his brilliant use of references along with an outstanding nod  to the Zucker Bros “15 Rules of Comedy.” It’s unlikely that one will find this kind of depth, either of film knowledge or comedic history in other reviews.

Review: Cloudy is truly a remarkable commentary on the modern comedy.
