Dave White’s “Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs 2 Review” wastes no time in getting right to business. The reader is presented with a small image from the movie, a five-star rating system, and then the text of the review, which is uninterrupted from start to finish.

At a relatively meager 466 words long, the text should be uninterrupted, and that’s a lesson many other reviewers could stand to learn. Being concise isn’t worth much if the reader still has to wade through a sea of overwhelming visuals.

Of course, the writing has to be good, too, and Dave White succeeds in this area. The tone of the review is light and whimsical, never getting bogged down in self-seriousness but never going over the line into unbearable zaniness. It’s a fine line to walk, but White does so quite well.

Cloudy With A Chance is chock-full of references to other cartoons, which enhances the reader’s understanding of the influences of the filmmakers. This helps paint a picture of the film’s style in a very economical way, which in turn helps keep the word count to a minimum.

For those looking for a review that is both informative and entertaining, Dave White’s Cloudy With A Chance is a spicy meatball that shouldn’t be missed.
