The Modern Reader Will Be Saddened by Liz Braun’s “Loud and Jokey”

In response to Liz Braun’s 449‑word review of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 on Jam! Movies

By ,

One can only imagine what Liz Braun thought she was providing her readers with in “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2 loud and jokey.”

One may feel enlightened to learn from the title that an animated film is “jokey.”

The main argument (or complaint) in Loud And Jokey is the critic’s disappointment with the humor. That is made clear. However, Braun appears to just give up, and not feel a need to expand and inform the audience of the content.

In the first two paragraphs of Loud and Jokey, Braun informs the reader that kids may like the film, and parents won’t. And just like that… Braun has left the building.

Wait, there is more. There is a plot summary that takes up the majority of the review, and  a tiny bit of commentary based on how parents might feel. It’s a tiresome and middling work isn’t helpful enough to be a parental guide, or fun enough to satisfy a mainstream audience.

At the conclusion of Loud And Jokey, Braun decides it’s time to slap the wrist of the film just like in the opening sentences. Unfortunately, there is nothing in between that justifies the harsh words.

Loud And Jokey is not only a weak review, but highly irritating.
