In “Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 Review,” Jordan Adler presents a dish best served cold. He attacks his subject with brutal precision, leaving no doubt as to his opinion on its quality. *Meta-spoiler alert*: It’s not very high

While many reviewers would have taken the lazy route and filled their review up with a litany of food-based puns, Adler saves his wordplay for when it serves as a cunning twist of the knife. Part of being an effective critic is being just slightly more clever than the subject matter of the review, and Adler proves himself up to the task.

The only serious gripe with Adler’s review is how difficult it is on the eyes. A light gray font on a white background does not make for an easy read, and it really distracts from the quality of his writing. It may have been decided by forces beyond his control, but it detracts from the overall quality of the review nonetheless.

When you get past the eye strain, though, Cloudy With A Chance is a well-written, well-executed review. Adler’s claws are sharp, and he’s not afraid to use them.  For anyone looking for a prime example of an effective takedown, this review would do nicely.
