What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Secret Life of Pets 2 is the sequel to the 2016 animated comedy about what pets do when their humans aren't home. The sequel continues the story of Max (now voiced by Patton Oswalt) and his pet friends Duke (Eric Stonestreet), Gidget (Jenny Slate), Daisy (Tiffany Haddish), and bunny rabbit Snowball (Kevin Hart). This time, Max must face one of his biggest fears: the vet! The first film was a funny animal adventure with plenty of positive messages about family and friendship, so you can expect the same here. But it also had some scary, perilous moments and rude humor that might be too much for younger kids if those elements are again part of the story.
