The Secret Life of Pets 2
Director: Chris Renaud
Cast: Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart, Eric Stonestreet, Jenny Slate, Tiffany Haddis, Lake Bell, Nick Kroll, Harrison Ford

The Secret Life of Pets was a run-of-the-mill animation which consistently ripped off the Toy Story franchise. The only thing consistent with this sequel is that it's all over the place. The characters and their relationships to other pets and people seem to have no rules, and the script juggles three separate story strands which come together for one contrived moment. While Max spends a stressful weekend at a farm, Gidget must retrieve an item from a house full of cats, and Snowball is recruited to rescue a white tiger.
