critic Reviews

    Visual vibrancy plus charming characters makes it a serviceable sequel, despite its thin story. Is it better than the forgettable first entry? Just by a hair. [Full review in Spanish]

    "The Secret Life of Pets 2" is one of the better kids movies so far this year. Full of sweet laughs, silly but acceptable jokes, and a stellar cast, this movie is fun for kids and parents alike.
