‘The Secret Life of Pets 2’ is a sequel of the 2016 film Secret life of pets. While the sequel has better humour than the original movie, the storyline stands to be disappointing.
The sequel continues the story of Max and his pet squad who are left alone as their owners travel their way to work or school. The movie opens with the owner of Max (Patton Oswalt) and Duke (Eric Stonestreet) shifting her attention from her pets to her newborn child. Initially, Max believes children are a pain in the house, however, later Liam and Max become best of buddies. Max also starts getting protective of Liam. The movie then continues with the family along with the pets heading out for a picnic to a farmhouse, where only humans are allowed to enter the house. Max and Duke encounter many other animals there who were weirder and fierce than he imagined.
During Max’s vacation, the plots shift its focus to Gidget (Jenny Slate), who trains herself to act like a cat in the body of a dog. She does so to get back the ‘bizzybee toy’ max had given her to keep until he is back. However, it falls off and lands in an apartment full of cats. And again the focus is shifted to the story of Snowball (Kevin Hart) who is a tamed bunny and thinks he’s a superhero because of the costume given to him by the owner. Snowball then finds his way along with Daisy (Tiffany Haddish) to rescue a caged tiger who is being abused and tortured for entertainment in a circus, however, is chased by nasty wolves to get back the tiger through the order of their evil owner.

The animation quality and character designs are simple and don’t portray any exceptional visuals. Many animals characters are added in the film to fill into extending the film for an hour and a half. The predictable end gets all the characters together by destroying the nasty wolves.
The animation and the dialogues seem to be decent, however, it works well to kill boredom. One wouldn’t remember the movie for life, but an entertaining watch for the little ones.
