It’s only when the sentient snacks are front and center that this middling sequel to the 2009 animated hit truly comes alive. Pickles stalk the town in search of their own food, mosquitoasts sting, apple-pie-thons slither,
and there’s a cheespider with French-fry legs that’s sure to make plenty of kids happy in its inevitable plastic toy form. Until then, the young ’uns have got a movie heavily reliant on groaner food puns that would work better on the page (‘There’s a leek in my boat’ gets running-gag honours) and slathered in the usual sentimental gibberish about following your instincts, dreams, etc. Not even a reheat could save these leftovers.
