Critics Consensus

The Secret Life of Pets 2 doesn't teach its animated stars any new narrative tricks -- but for fans of the original, this funny, energetic sequel should still satisfy.

  • The Secret Life of Pets 2 offers a pleasant, innocuous 90 minutes of entertainment for children and to adults who moderate their expectations. Was it worth Illumination spending $US80 million dollars on? Possibly not, but then it isn't your money or mine.

  • The sequel to 2016's animated hit is even thinner on plot than the first one, whose title promised a look behind the scenes and inside the minds of cats and dogs.

  • All told, "The Secret Life of Pets 2" is bound to give you a chuckle or two, and maybe even an "awww" moment. The bar this movie clears, though, could have been set a lot higher.

  • 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 never a great sign when the biggest laughs a movie gets are during the end credits.

    June 6, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • Despite its humor - and despite some genuinely aww-inspiring moments - "The Secret Life of Pets 2" is kind of forgettable.

Audience Reviews for The Secret Life of Pets 2

  • Jul 22, 2020
    Max is off to the country in The Secret Life of Pets 2, a fun animated family film. When Max's owner and her husband go to visit their uncle's farm Max meets a sheepdog named Rooster who shows him the ropes of farm life; meanwhile Gidget loses Max's favorite toy and has to infiltrate an apartment full of cats to get it back. Featuring the voice talents of Patton Oswalt, Harrison Ford, Kevin Hart, Dana Carvey, Ellie Kemper, and Jenny Slate, the film has a solid cast that delivers great performances. And the animation is especially good; with bright, crisp colors. Also, the humor is incredibly funny and does a great job at satirizing the eccentricities of pets and the human-pet relationship. Clever and entertaining, The Secret Life of Pets 2 is a comedy that all ages can enjoy.

    The Secret Life of Pets 2 is off its leash and goes astray from its narrative; missing a good amount of opportunities to make it at least just as, if not, more effective than the first film. Despite the lovable animation and additions, this sequel seems more constructive if it were adapted as a short-series. 2.48/5

    A definite step below the original but Oswalt makes a great Max and Tiffany Haddish is a great foil for snowflake. Still many laughs and sweet moments. Good summer fun! 06-08-2019

    I watched the original Pets 1, and simply loved Pets 2. All the kids in the cinema were squealing away and laughing. Visually mesmerising, good pacing and gets a simple story of overcoming fear, building courage, and of course, the importance of family. This is definitely a go-to film for families that inspires and teaches values.
