Disclosure: My family and I were invited to a pre-screening of The Secret Life of Pets 2 for free in exchange for this post.

If you remember, my family and I were huge fans of The Secret Life of Pets. So, of course, we were excited to hear a second one was being released! Tuesday evening we visited the theater for a prescreening and I am excited to share our thoughts with you today!

About The Secret Life of Pets 2

Terrier Max (Patton Oswalt) is coping with some major life changes. His owner (Ellie Kemper) is now married and has a toddler, Liam. Max is so worried about protecting the boy that he develops a nervous tic. On a family trip to a farm, Max and mutt Duke (Eric Stonestreet) encounter canine-intolerant cows, hostile foxes, and a terrifying turkey, all of which only elevates Max’s anxiety. Luckily, Max gets some guidance from veteran farm dog Rooster (Harrison Ford, making his animated-film debut), who pushes Max to ditch his neuroses, find his inner alpha, and give Liam a little more freedom.

Meanwhile, while her owner is away, plucky Pomeranian Gidget (Jenny Slate) tries to rescue Max’s favorite toy from a cat-packed apartment with a little help from her feline friend, Chloe (Lake Bell), who has discovered the joys of catnip.

And crazy-but-cute bunny Snowball (Kevin Hart) gets delusions of grandeur that he’s an actual superhero after his owner Molly starts dressing him in superhero pajamas. But when Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), a fearless Shih Tzu, shows up to ask for Snowball’s help on a dangerous mission, he’ll have to summon the courage to become the hero he’s only been pretending to be.

Can Max, Snowball, Gidget and the rest of the gang find the inner courage to face their biggest fears?

My Families Thoughts

We thoroughly enjoyed The Secret Life of Pets 2! I honestly think I enjoyed it even more than the first one, and I didn’t think that was possible. The main new characters, Daisy and Duke, that were introduced were great. I love that there were a few side stories going on throughout the whole movie.

We laughed throughout the whole movie but I love some of the lessons that are taught as well. With family movies, I love to laugh and I love for their to be a life lesson for the kids and this sequel did not disappoint.

Overall, I give The Secret Life of Pets 2 two paws, er – thumbs up! I hope that you and your family will go this weekend or next and check it out!

The Secret Life of Pets 2 opens in U.S. theaters today, June 7th!
