Both 1&2 Are Excellent! A very witty and hilarious view into The Secret Life of Pets when their masters are away and the pets can be themselves!
Even if you're not a pet person, You'll still get a Good Laugh from these movies!
Great For Adults, and Kids too-LOL!!!
The Animation is Awesome!
The Secret Life of Pets 2 is funnier than the first!
The story is told in ensemble format with 3 parallel plots that ultimately converge by the end, a much more sophisticated film structure than the first movie. The 3 plots are all hilarious and will keep children and adults amused. Additionally, there are good messages embedded for children.
Max and Duke are anxious and jealous, at first, of the new baby. But they very quickly welcome them into the family. Also, with the help of a farm dog named Rooster, Max learns how to be brave when facing new situations.
In the first movie, Snowball the bunny was crazy and evil although is redeemed by the end. In this sequel, Snowball's redemption is complete. He enjoys dressup and pretend play with his human child owner. And although he is still just as crazy as the first movie, in this sequel he focuses all of that energy on good, by dressing as a super hero to rescue a tiger cub from a cruel circus owner.
The funniest subplot in my opinion is the part focused on Gidget babysitting Max's squeeky toy, especially learning to act like a cat from Chloe so she can rescue the toy from an apartment full of cats.
All 3 plots converge by the end upon the rescue of the tiger cub.
The 4k disk includes the movie AND all of the extras. This is a big improvement over the first movie that only had the extras on the regular bluray. More so than movies with live action, the 4k uhd especially enhances the visual quality.
Extras and Bonus Features:
There are a ton of bonus features such as "making of" type stuff. Among the extras are 2 mini-movies. The best of these is "super gidget". The other is a Minion mini-movie. All of the bonus features are on both the 4k disk and the regular bluray.
The digital copy is in the form of a Movies Anywhere code. I recommend redeeming that code directly on the Movies Anywhere site. Currently the digital Movies Anywhere copy will stream in 4k via any of the following apps/services linked to your Movies Anywhere account: Movies Anywhere, Vudu, FandangoNow, and Google Play Movies.
The mini-movies and other bonus features do not stream with the digital copy through either Prime Video or the Movies Anywhere app.
I would recommend this to a friend
Rated 5 out of 5 stars
Owned for 3 weeks when reviewed.
I was hesitating to watch this sequel. I was beyond scared because I LOVED the original movie so much. I'm so glad I gave it a shot it was a great story line and plot. I was SHOCKED that I liked it as much as the first I usually don't like sequels. I thought the animation was amazing it made a perfect date night for my little sisters and I. we all laughed and enjoyed all the characters and the whole movie from start to finish. I would totally recommend any one to watch this sequel.
This sequel continues the story of Max and his friends some time after the first film. Max's owner gets married and a new adventure starts when she takes a road trip into the country to visit her husband's relative where Max gets involved with a rooster who trains him to be a sheep dog. The adventure also continues for Max's friends back in the city. He entrusted his favorite toy to Gidget, who loses it in a cat infested apartment, which causes a quest to retrieve it before Max returns. Chloe and Snowball also have an adventure, which involves the rescuing of a white tiger cub. All in all it is a series of fun filled drama, which the theater audiences enjoyed more than the critics, so see it and compare it to the first one yourself.
In this animated dog movie, the main dog learns to face his fears of being scared and how to live life and let things go. Includes a digital copy code in package. You will love the tiger, the super hero bunny, the puppies undergoing dog training by the senior dog, and laugh when the dogs visit the farm too.
The first Secret Life of Pets was fantastic. Original and hilarious, I wasn't sure they could pull of a successful second movie, but they did. I enjoyed it even more than the first one. With so many redundant movies these days, Secret Life of Pets, both films, are original, imaginative and very funny. I highly recommend them to kids 2 yrs to 95 yrs of age. My teenage granddaughter even enjoyed the film!!
Great family flick that even adults can enjoy. I love the fact that there is always Sundance with these kinds of movies or always something we can teach kids. With a lot of shows or cartoons now a days that are absolute trash, it's great to still have movies with characters that can make us enjoy animations.
