Well, it was still happening soon after the first film became a big hit, so it didn't surprise me one bit that a sequel is coming.
Sure, a new voice actor for Max had to come in after... you know, but hey, that is just one person/character that wasn't going to change course for the worse. So here's hope this sequel also becomes a big hit (expected but still).

So yeah...this is actually happening.
Indeed it is. And honestly...I really don't think we need it. I found the trailer to be quite lame. What's the plot? The pets go to the vet? I thought the first movie was kind of a disaster, and unfortunately this looks about the same. "We start fires" was the only thing here that got a slight smile out of me.

Also, it's weird having Max not be voiced by Louie C.K. Not that I miss him...

Honestly I got a kick out of the "we burn things" line from the cats.

I dunno why people think it's cool to diss Illumination. Yes the minions can be annoying but this studio still puts alot of effort into their work. Sing! Was great and Grinch looks good. The first Secret Life of Pets was just average but this overall these movies are harmless and looks like it could be a mildly entertaining way to kill some time.

Illumination movies are not worth paying to see in theaters.
I will watch this on Netflix when it’s available. I actually kind of like the first film.

In fairness one could argue no film is worth paying to see in theaters with the ever climbing price of tickets and the ridiculous price of concessions, good lord are concession prices ridiculously high! I mean I know that's how the theater's make most of their money but c'mon! Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if theaters went belly-up all together in another 10-20 years or so if enough people get tired of the pricing.:shame:

I can agree with this.

I agree here too.

I'm usually a matinee man when it comes to seeing the movies in their initial screenings (and it's rare I do this too). Tickets are much cheaper then of course. And I've never bought snacks from the concession stand; usually from the dollar store.
No matter what rules they places on things like this, won't stop me from raking in cheaper-priced, better-taste outside food over their high-priced, mid-quality snacks.

Some definitely are, but I would say Life of Pets was definitely not worth price of full admission.

Hollywood in general has been in this odd phase of comedy that you can just as easily get from a network sitcom. Illumination should be doing tv like DWA is.

I only see movies in matinee during a weekday to avoid crowds. And I NEVER get food at concessions. I once bought a regular size water bottle at a theater for $7!
When I see films with my sister, she usually sneaks snacks in.
