Reviews: The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019)

Here are review links for this film submitted by our members:

  • [New] | Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
    • Excerpt: While writer Brian Lynch repeats the same mistakes he made with the first movie – mainly going far afield of organic adventures like a lost toy or trip to the vet’s – this time around he only errs with one of his plot threads and it is, once again, the one that features the thoroughly obnoxious Snowball.
  • Courtney Howard @ Variety
    • Excerpt: Stronger sentiments and higher hijinks elevate this sequel above the original.
  • MaryAnn Johanson @ FlickFilosopher.com
    • Excerpt: Underwhelming: episodic, a random collection of unconnected vignettes rather than one cohesive story. Inoffensive, but missing the first movie’s fantastical animals’ perspective on the human world.
  • Jared Mobarak @ The Film Stage
    • Excerpt: Illumination missed the boat on The Secret Life of Pets because the way they’ve told these stories thus far make them a lot more conducive to television than cinema.
