Max the dog (voiced by Patton Oswalt, replacing Louis CK) returns, this time experiencing anxiety at the arrival of his owner's first child. Treading a similar path to the first film (substitute "new child" for "new dog"), the film is mainly a chance to spend more time with characters you came to love in the original movie. Luckily, that time is quite enjoyable. Bunny Snowball (Kevin Hart) has his own side adventure, as does pampered poodle Gidget (Jenny Slate), making the film more a series of skits than a flowing story. However, it does what it sets out to do, providing funny moments of slapstick for kids and knowing gags for pet owners. One stand out addition is Harrison Ford as tough farm dog Rooster, fitting in surprisingly well for his first animated role. While more episodic in nature than its predecessor, The Secret Life of Pets 2 is a cuddly family adventure that will make younger tails wag.


Max the terrier encounters canine-intolerant cows, hostile foxes and a scary turkey when he visits the countryside. Luckily for the lovable dog, he soon catches a break when he meets Rooster, a gruff farm dog who tries to cure the pooch of his neuroses. Animated sequel, featuring the voices of Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart and Harrison Ford.
