A sequel that feels less necessary than willed into being, but that doesn't mean it's not pleasantly entertaining.

Hollywood Reporter

Sufficiently buoyant to charm the audiences that turned SLOP into a record-breaking box office proposition.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 may not offer a new tale, but it certainly knows the joy of greeting happy, wagging ones.

The Guardian

press

A sequel that's better than the original. It's wittier, less frenetic and introduces fresh characters and a nice scene of strategic furball vomming.

The Times (UK)

Even a vocal cameo from Harrison Ford, playing a sturdy country canine, can't save it.

Variety (USA)

Stronger sentiments and higher hijinks elevate this sequel above the original.

Like its predecessor, Pets 2 works best in its witty observations of human and animal behaviour.

The Secret Life Of Pets 2 (Official Review)

The Secret Life Of Pets 2, to me, I reckoned was an alright movie. I thought it was a lot like the first film, but except I liked the original movie more. It was a pretty short film, not including the end credits or anything, it was 75 min. I wish there could’ve been some more exciting events. But it was still a memorial and loving movie.
