The Secret Life of Pets 2 has received a rating of 6.6/10 by IMDb and stands fresh at 55% by Rotten Tomatoes.
Illumination has landed a sequel not as good as its prequel.
A color-filled and delightful experience for pet lovers.
I just noticed the voice of Max was changed. Louis C.K was replaced by Patton Oswalt and the rest remained quite the same. The apartments are the same, the pets are the same, but there’s a slight difference in the story.

Read The Secret Life of Pets 2 Review.
Max the terrier(Patton Oswalt) and Duke(Eric Stonestreet) are happily living with their owner Katie(Ellie Kemper) and one day she meets Chunk and they marry. Soon they have a baby, which raises insecurity to the pets in the house. Max stays in the corner in hiding from the baby named Liam, until one day when Liam comes and hugs Max saying, ‘I love you, Max’.
This sets off a new agenda for Max, which is to become the protector of the baby. He sure does a pretty good job at that and becomes stressful. He begins scratching his neck, leaving no choice for Katie but to take him to a pet therapist. He then gets prescribed of a cone-collar.
Soon the family plans for a farm trip, where Max meets Rooster(Harrison Ford), a Welsh Sheepdog, who notices something’s not right with Max and plan to bring down the cone-collar dog’s anxiety and cure him of his fears.
Back in the apartment, Gidget(Ellie Kemper) has to take care of Max ‘s toy, Busy Bee in his absence. Soon Busy Bee ends up in the house of cats and Gidget has to find a way to get the toy out. Snowball(Kevin Hart) and Daisy(Tiffany Haddish) set off on a mission to free a white tiger from its abusive Russian circus owner, Sergei.
All the pet fun looks pleasing and the slapstick comedy makes the little kids laugh out loud. Each subplot has its own problem to solve making it a multi-dimension story. Soon all the stories converge in the climax in a routine way.
Swag scenes and funny lines have landed very well. Humour is in the finest and the whole movie is colorful. Snowball’s moves and his haul added a good flavor, none the less, it was Kevin Hart’s magic.
Not that good as the prequel. Part 1 has all the story sorted and executed smoothly. The Secret Life of Pets 2 gets a bit less interesting in the middle, but you’ll catch its speed later on. The climax is the regular chase scene, nothing much unique or nail-biting.
probably not the best-animated movie in recent times nor the worst, Stands in between. Recommended for kids and Cynophilists.
