I must first admit that I own the first installment on blu-ray, but I honestly don’t remember if I’ve watched it. I’m pretty sure I get the jest of it and the beginning of this sequel does a great job explaining the events of the first movie. Having said that, you don’t need to see it to enjoy this, because it’s pretty good on it’s own. It picks up right where it left off, and Flint(Bill Hader) is recruited by an “Apple” type science company. Long story short the food he created has mutated and taken over their city, and he has to help stop/contain them. The movie has some twists and turns, and it’s very, very funny. Not to mention the animation in this is awesome. The Tacodile is something to be seen for sure. We took Grant and he enjoyed it, so kids will definitely love it. Good news is, so will the parents. I’ve seen much worse animated movies out there. Hopefully the make another one, cause this franchise is pretty unique and I’d love to see where it goes next.
