PLUS Louis CK made the original enjoyable, Patton Oswald just sucks.

I imagine it's enjoyable for young kids who, if anything were going on, would have no idea what was going on anyway.

This was brilliant for the 5, 9 & 10 year olds who saw it, they thoroughly enjoyed it and laughed.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 is an exciting movie, to say the least.

Very enjoyable .

Worth watching.

Nonetheless, the film was entertaining.

That one kept me and my grand niece on the edge of our seats.

The first Secret Life of Pets was an enjoyable film.

Funny and enjoyable .

With all due respect to people's opinions, this movie was just so forgettable and at times, unwatchable.

An entertaining and hilarious sequel.

It was predictable, all the laughs were in the trailers, and the plot structure itself was a wannabe Toy Story.

I wouldn't say this is a family film, since I believe most parents will be bored out of their mind.

It's cute and entertaining.

With it's bland humor and trouble to keep a story line, The Secret Life of Pets 2 falls behind.

This movie was so funny but boring at times and the plot wasn't very interesting.

The first one was a great new franchize, but the sequel is Boring.

Admittedly entertaining, but lacking pretty much any value, The Secret Life of Pets 2 continues Illuminations trend of recent seemingly pointless sequels.

Except Toy Story 4 was entertaining.

My husband fell asleep,I spent half of the movie on Facebook,my 6 y old was constantly asked me questions for school ,vacations,babies ...

Pointless Sequel .

Fell asleep .

The first movie was not as bad and felt like a departure from the typical style Illumination portrays, however I got about half way through this one and felt bored and exhausted.

Let's get started:Movie: The Secret Life Of Pets 2 (2019)Directors: Chris Renaud, Jonathan del Val (co-director) Writer: Brian Lynch Stars: Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, Harrison Ford LIKES: Voice Acting Animation Comedy Pacing Adventurous Stories Emotional Moments DISLIKES: Predictable Short Run Time Not Quite Original More Impasses/Character Development Under Utilized CharactersPeople who like these may like this movie:Secret Life Of Pets 1 Sing Ferdinand Homeward Bound A Dog's PurposeSummary: Animated films often require good voice acting to bring the characters to life, and this series' cast succeeds in bringing the plot to full life.

This one was a huge waste of time.

This animated film was actually enjoyable, up until one of the dog characters used the word "pissed.

I'm not kidding) and with Rooster's help, Max's side is more meaningful, learning not to be scared and have faith in yourself, it's funny, cute and it makes the movie have a purpose, Snowball's plot is more action packed and exciting!

Entertaining .

The characters are cute, albeit bland.

Otherwise, the film was pretty enjoyable and a had a better story than the first Secret Life of Pets.

They're all so safe and predictable, and they even feel tacked on to pad the film.

Fun Enjoyable 🎞 .

Since this is a kid-targeted movie and all of the cute, fluffy characters are protected by plot armor, the moviegoer knows that they'll win no matter what happens (although this is definitely a characteristic of most movies, so you can interpret this as nitpicking) - even Gidget, Chloe, and their friends crashing a car into the villain at the end of the movie is predictable.

There's a few scenes that are very intense, and a couple that may be too thematically dark to be comfortable for young children.

Nothing Happens .

Problem is, the characters are uninteresting and the story is just plain awful.

Most of the scenes are literally boring and they had a slight piece of entertainment in here.

No plot, no action, no humor .

Adorable but boring .

Boring for adults .

Several scenes, including the cliff scene and the chase scenes, are pretty intense.

There's plenty of laughs and fun hijinks, but it's all so empty and meaningless.

This film is trying to show you very good points but the characters are the most boring thing.

I highly recommend it!

Thus, it's really enjoyable and I've enjoyed every seconds of it.

It's still pretty damn funny and entertaining all the while having a little something to say.

Fun movie but loses track of story as others have mentioned and the eastern european bad guy stereotype is boringly outdated by now, maybe it works for US audiences still?

But this movie was boring, lifeless, non-comedic, non-adventurous, no true action.

The children also fell asleep.

Intense and entertaining .

I thought it was very funn with great characters, exciting, and enjoyed the intermingling plot and sub plots.

I must admit, may have stifled a yawn at some points.

This movie was so boring that the KID (notice I said kid, not adult or teen or baby) next to me kept climbing on the chair and running around before his whole family left.

Nevertheless, since the premise was finally fulfilled and in a very funny and entertaining way, I liked it a lot, way to go (except for the seemingly obligatory bashing).

Though it didn't quite capture the charm as the original, it's still entertaining and funny enough to see what these characters have been up to since their last adventure.

It's an extremely enjoyable movie!

Such works forcibly give the impression that the authors are trying to make every year jokes more stupid and the stories more uninteresting and silly.

It really felt like three different episodes or short films stitched together to make it feature length and you know what it wouldn't be so bad if it was at least entertaining to watch.

It felt like an enjoyable experience for younger moviegoers that keeps them quiet for an hour and a half.

all i can say is that yes it wasnt as long as the first one but hey still enjoyed it and the kids will aswell cause it is for the youngsters after all.

The funny bits had already been shown on trailers the rest was disjointed.

Still, we left the theater satisfied.

Same entertaining just like the first one.

Such a funny and enjoyable movie for all audiences!

I found this movie to be more engaging and relatable than the original.

I went into this movie wanting to love it, but I found myself finding it very uneventful and conveniently written.

Honestly I didn't expected much from there sequel, but I enjoyed it more than my daughter!

I highly recommend it.

In practice, however, the stories intertwine pretty well and does deliver an entertaining and intense climax in the third act.

It's just so predictably boring.

But I found the movie disjointed.

A total complete waste of money to see this.

This is one of those movies that is entertaining to children and adults.

There is no storyline WHATSOEVER.

Boring .

I would say if you liked the first one you will like this one, even though I found this one was a little slower.

We all three enjoyed it .

Painfully boring for adults.

The movie is really entertaining...

Enjoyed It & Haters Will Hate .

The only good thing is the visual then is only boring.

For one thing, the movie is still predictable and pulled no surprises in terms of story presentation.

The storyline was engaging, and the content was compelling.

Totally worth watching!

watch it for yourself, we enjoyed it .

I admit I giggled a couple times but omg it was so boring.

As they bring CGI and other animation tactics to the table, the stories that follow have a big job of trying to make a film that is entertaining to all ages without dipping down one end over the other.

Characters were boring, straight from the default creation wizard if you'd ask.

My only issue(s) were that the plot was predictable and Max & Duke, while not intolerable, didn't leave much an impression for me.

it was boring.

This is bland boring filmmaking at its finest.

Several times in the course of watching it, I wondered how much more enjoyable this concept would be as a streaming TV show or a miniseries.

Overall, Secret Life Of Pets 2 was a funny and action packed movie for the whole family.

Gets better by Every Minute ( Slow starting ) .

Ok, I might have foreseen some obvious twists (I cannot tell them here so as to avoid spoilers), but others came rather unexpected, which was something I liked the most.

A forgettable sequel but still enjoyable.

Really enjoyed it, amazing voice cast and a good fun story line

Besides this, the movie was an epic bore.

Entertaining, but pointless sequel .

It's so predictable and they split the gang.

The Max's storyline had the most potential but ended up being the weakest and boring.

Adults may get a little bored with the movie since the humor is aiming for the younger audiences.

I had no interest in watching this movie, since the trailer for The Secret Life of Pets 2 was dull.

There were so many plots at the very beginning, such as Captain Snowball saving the tiger, Max protecting Liam, and Gidget trying to find the bee, but it all led an action packed fight scene.

Despite the movie being pretty "childish", there were several intense and entertaining action scenes, such as the scene where Max is forced to rescue a lamb from a cliff, and the fight on the train at the end.


A big chunk of the story is completely pointless, but this is a movie aimed at children, and it's still fun, hilarious, and enjoyable to watch.

Fun, very entertaining.

I thought people finally stopped with the "singing-at-the-end" animations because it's so cliche and corny.

The first one was really funny, this one they went for more boring/scary...

This movie was so unwatchable that maybe this is the beginning of the end of their bs.

A funnier and entertaining improvement .

This movie has no meaning, no plot.

Boring .

The movie had one target, to make kids laugh, and it did that very well, but for adults, it really dragged down on that!

It's an entertaining, funny animated feature with a great cast of actors and actresses who keep the story going.

It was a good movie and I enjoyed it.

Can't put my finger on why i didn't really like it, perhaps because its aimed at a younger audience, but i just got bored, and felt like the first movie was enough and this one felt forced.

It saw the comeback of the characters we loved from the first movie, and some exciting new characters too.

Nothing was funny, there was no plot NO STORY.

Really unexpected for a kids movie.

Watched this with teenage son had a few laughs and thoroughly enjoyable.

Fun, Hilarious, and Exciting .

Particularly I found it quite enjoyable, it has a fun adventuresque feel and plenty of humorous scenes.

All you adult reviewers this movie is for kids so if you want to be a spoil sport and give bad reviews go ahead i bet more than half the people on here enjoyed it...

Funny, but predictable and forgettable.

The adults were bored into drowsyness in ten minutes, Actually having to rouse ourselves from dropping off over and over.

Very entertaining .

Boring, Lame, Childish .

Still Enjoyable For me .

At the end if you enjoyed it, more power to you.

The story is thin and the movie is a bit boring with this sequel.

And also it has some exciting moments.

Yawn .

Took the little ones to see this in their half term break, they enjoyed it so job done really.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable and well done sequel.

While not entirely necessary, this sequel is pleasantly entertaining.

The first two attempts at watching this movie, we fell asleep.

I would still watch it again and recommend to kids and adults for entertaining movie with good ending.

not quite what I wanted but it is close to what I want in a way, the Secret Life of Pets 2 is a surprisingly pretty good sequel to the first movie, slightly better and it has improved, not majorly, but it's still a improvement, it's still funny, the story has more meaning to it and it has two subplots that are fun and interesting, the animation is just as strong as the first movie, the new characters are fun, and some of the old characters are still funny and entertaining!

I sure wish these films were as entertaining as the Despicable Me franchise.

Many of the other characters are completely pointless, though.

The humor is generic, the troubles characters face predictable and there is really nothing memorable about this movie.

Okay honestly, I went with my two daughters and expected to get bored and I think I enjoyed it more than they did!

The Secret Life of Pets 2 is an unexpected successor, and it doesn't live up to it's prequel.

And in fact, it was predictable that it would appear as the first "Pets" was a notable success.

Despite it being a visual treat, I wasn't particularly taken with this sequel, but my 2+ year old enjoyed it all in one sitting, and that's good enough for me.

A very large chunk of The Secret Life of Pets 2 is pointless and dumb.

Such a boring movie .. Enough with the same old story that domestic cats are apathetic and uncaring.

The storyline was bland, it seemed like a desperate attempt to simply make a sequel off the success of the first one.

As in your kids might need something explained or need some reasurrance that all is well was put in place for when the kids ask why it was so boring.

Entertaining joy ride.

The secret life of pets 2 enjoyable and entertaining for kids, i personally liked it, its fast short and enjoyable, but wasnt like the 1st one it had a much bigger story and more concentrated on the main character and much bigger villain, in this time didnt feel the presence of a villain it wasnt much concentrated on it, it was more with max and the kid how rooster told him be a brave, really liked how they made subplots in a such movie one with max snowball and gidget all those backstories really enjoyed gidgets role there, Its well crafted but sometimes if you think its unnecessary this to be there but its all about enjoying and spent time with kids so its great, if you are a fan of 1st one and a animation fan this a choice and give it a go, 6.5/10⭐

Being rather disappointed by the first part of this cartoon, I did find the second part absolutely fascinating.

Still, I've learned to rise above the nonsense, and will rate the flick for what it is: A Just About Tolerable Selection Of Bland Sketches Vaguely Connected To A Wisp Of A Plot Full Of Poop And Pee Jokes.
