Following on from Secret Life of Pets we find Terrier Max (Patton Oswalt) having to readjust to life when his owner Katie meets someone new and they have a baby (Liam). Suddenly Max sees all the danger in the world and feels that is his duty to protect Liam from them. A family holiday away on a farm sees Max having to pushing himself out of his comfort zone; whilst at the same time the other pets back at home also have to be brave – but for different reasons. Gidget (Jenny Slate) has to learn to become a cat in order to save Max’s favourite squeaky bee toy from a cat-lady’s cat filled-apartment and Snowball (Kevin Hart) helps Daisy (Tiffany Haddish) rescue an animal from the circus because he believes he really is a superhero.
Secret Life of Pets 2 is funny and even better than the original! It features underlying messages about being brave, different types of parenting and opens up a discussion about whether animals should be in the circus. The thing which annoyed me about Secret Life of Pets 2 is the very old fashioned girl needs to ask boy for help with something, which she mostly is brave enough herself and he gets to play the hero. Also in terms of the secret life of pets it doesn’t really move any further away than just dogs and cats (even though one the main characters is a rabbit). Although this simplicity is probably what make it a great family film to watch.
