October 23, 2019
The Secret Life of Pets skated by on an amusing premise that its sequel all but abandons in favor of a frenetically edited, scattershot story that's more likely to leave audiences with whiplash than in stitches.

They don't give [Patton Oswalt] much to do... It just never comes together.
August 14, 2019
The vocal talents are so good, the only things you really wish for through The Secret Life of Pets 2 are better lines, a few more sight gags featuring cats and laser pointers - and maybe a little less Hart.

The movie seems more like an attempt to return to the success of the first installment, rather than giving the opportunity to grow as a franchise. [Full Review in Spanish]

The animation is competent... but the story and humor are only repeating previous ideas. [Full Review in Spanish]
August 6, 2019
The film is presented as a novelty in the form of a puzzle of three separate stories, to ultimately repeat the scheme proposed in the original. [Full review in Spanish]
June 27, 2019
Contains three more or less autonomous plot strands, and forgets to put a conflict into two of them.
June 24, 2019
The Secret Life of Pets 2 lazily puts together a handful of uninspired subplots and tries to pass them off as a feature film.
June 20, 2019
It's as if the filmmakers are assuming some kind of attention deficit disorder on the part of their young audiences.
June 20, 2019
[They] do their best to juggle the many opposing elements, but what should have been a gracefully choreographed performance devolves into a three-ring circus.
June 20, 2019
Adults will get little out of it, and children are likely to forget it once they've left the theatres
June 18, 2019
The overall stories weren't working so much, they all felt like a planned series that got cancelled...
June 15, 2019
It has even less bite (comic, not dog) than its predecessor.
June 14, 2019
The freshness is gone in this sequel; there's less humour, less flavour, less fun. Recommended only for the ardent lover of cats and dogs, and barely even then.
June 12, 2019
Perhaps the most problematic paucity is that of narrative cohesion.
June 12, 2019
While cute and cuddly, The Secret Life of Pets 2, can't rely on fluff alone. It needs more story. As a parent, two things made me upset to see in this film.
June 10, 2019
Even if we take that misplaced bit of armchair psychiatry out, The Secret Life of Pets 2 simply isn't good.
June 10, 2019
What's there to say about a movie like this? Kids will like it, adults probably won't.
June 7, 2019
Insert the obligatory you-can't-teach-an-old-dog-new-tricks reference here, and even at 83 minutes, the three mini movies that are The Secret Life of Pets 2 struggle to keep the laughs going.
June 7, 2019
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.
