DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Animated Adventure Comedy - Like the first film, this is an animal-centered animated comedy. Patton Oswalt takes over the lead role, but other prominent members of the voice cast such as Kevin Hart returned, joined by new additions such as Harrison Ford and Tiffany Haddish. There is some crude toilet humor, but most parents will find this to be safe viewing for kids.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average Although not "bad” in a conventional sense, it's a disappointingly mediocre effort that doesn't have a lot to offer potential viewers over age 10. It's a perfect example of what can happen when a sequel exists simply because its predecessor made a lot of money.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average ...none of the plotlines builds much momentum individually, much less together, and then they all just sort of collide at the end when everyone's back home in the big city. It's more of the same as the original "Pets,” and yet less. Your kids will be sufficiently entertained...

NY Post Full Review
Average It has no real reason to exist, other than to be a passable option for parents whose children are too young to handle PG-13 fare and feels like it. It's never a great sign when the biggest laughs a movie gets are during the end credits.

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 80 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: The kids all loved "The Secret Life of Pets 2."
TEENS: Two males loved it, one enjoyed it very much and one rated it "good/average." The ladies enjoyed it quite a bit more with six of the seven loving it and one enjoying it very much.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: Two males enjoyed "Pets2" very much and one felt it was a "good/average" movie (enjoyable but nothing special or memorable). Great reviews from the ladies. Five loved it and three enjoyed it very much.
ADULTS: These are very good reviews from the adults, both males and females. A large percentage loved it with most of the rest indicating that they enjoyed it very much. Only about 20% of both the males and females rated it just "good/average."


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Terrier Max (Patton Oswalt) is coping with some major life changes. His owner (Ellie Kemper) is now married and has a toddler, Liam. Max is so worried about protecting the boy that he develops a nervous tic. On a family trip to a farm, Max and mutt Duke (Eric Stonestreet) encounter canine-intolerant cows, hostile foxes and a terrifying turkey, all of which only elevates Max's anxiety. Luckily, Max gets some guidance from veteran farm dog Rooster (Harrison Ford, making his animated-film debut), who pushes Max to ditch his neuroses, find his inner alpha, and give Liam a little more freedom.

Meanwhile, while her owner is away, plucky Pomeranian Gidget (Jenny Slate) tries to rescue Max's favorite toy from a cat-packed apartment with a little help from her feline friend, Chloe (Lake Bell), who has discovered the joys of catnip.

And crazy-but-cute bunny Snowball (Kevin Hart) gets delusions of grandeur that he's an actual superhero after his owner Molly starts dressing him in superhero pajamas. But when Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball's help on a dangerous mission, he'll have to summon the courage to become the hero he's only been pretending to be.

Can Max, Snowball, Gidget and the rest of the gang find the inner courage to face their biggest fears?
