Secret Life of Pets 2 Movie Review – No Spoilers and DIY Captain Snowball Ears

Everyone loves our favorite pets from Secret Life of Pets. But in Secret Life of Pets 2, we get a few more favorites with Rooster and Hu. Available on Digital now and Blu-ray DVD on August 27th.

Max entrusts Gidget with his toy, Busy Bee, but ends up losing it. Snowball and Daisy try to rescue a Tiger cub from the circus in Secret Life of Pets 2.

Max isn’t a fan of kids so when Liam arrives, he’s not happy. But Liam grows on him and he learns to protect him as if he were his own. 

Max loves car rides but hates the vet, as any dog I’ve ever owned. He is all excited when he finds out his family is going on vacation. But not so excited when he finds out they have to sleep outside at the farm. 


He entrusts Gidget with his favorite toy, Busy Bee. All is fine until it falls down the fire escape and into the cat lady’s apartment. How is she ever going to get it back? With the help of some of her friends, she tries.

All while Snowball, who thinks he’s a superhero, and Daisy, the friendly Shih Tzu try to rescue a poor sad tiger cub name Hu from the mean circus leader. But first have to get past four wolves.

The Secret Life of Pets 2 is a sequel that fans have been waiting years for and we have an awesome giveaway prize pack to celebrate the release! 

What Will Happen?

Is Gidget able to retrieve Busy Bee before Max gets back? Does Snowball and Daisy rescue Hu? And live to tell about it? Therefore, If they rescue Hu where will he stay? Furthermore, you can find out now by ordering the Secret Life of Pets 2 on Digital now and purchase it on blu-ray DVD on August 27th. 

I watched it with my grandkids even though they had seen it at the movies when it came out. I love the DVD not only because they are able to watch it when we are traveling, but because there are so many extras, 75 minutes of bonus content to be exact, on the DVD and even some on digital.
