Film Review: ‘The Secret Life of Pets 2’ Feels More Like a Cat Nap Than Catnip

Chicago – As a pet owner, I know firsthand that I want an exciting life for my guinea pigs. When I’m off at work, I’d like to think that they throw parties or have some sort of hangouts with other guinea pigs or pets in the area. The alternative being the sad realization that they are stuck in their cage while I’m away, probably bored out of their little minds. “The Secret Life of Pets” franchise continues to brings the fantasy to life, even if the sequel feels too tame.

Rating: 2.5/5.0

Let’s get back to the important part: the totally healthy fantasy social life I’ve created for my guinea pigs. Whenever I’m gone I like to imagine they are having fun (mis)adventures that may or may not include acts of superheroism or even crimes. “The Secret Life of Pets 2” continues to scratch that itch,

Why Dana Carvey Says He Left Hollywood in the Late ’90s — And What He’s Doing Now

Why Dana Carvey Says He Left Hollywood in the Late ’90s — And What He’s Doing Now
Dana Carvey had audiences cracking up at his George Bush impression and his Church Lady character during seven seasons of Saturday Night Live, and created unforgettable catchphrases with Mike Myers in two Wayne’s World movies. But at the peak of his career in the late ‘90s, Carvey stepped away to raise his two sons Dex and Thomas, now 28 and 26, respectively, with his wife since 1983, Paula Zwagerman.

“I have friends who get stressed about fading or not being as hot. I never quite engaged that,” Carvey, 64, tells People in this week’s issue. “I have a lot of drive to

‘Dark Phoenix’ Fires Up $5 Million at Thursday Box Office
Dark Phoenix,” the X-Men sequel from Disney and Fox, has earned $5 million in its Thursday box office previews, while “The Secret Life of Pets 2,” which is projected similarly this weekend, earned $2.3 million in its previews from 3,250 screens with showings beginning at 6 p.m.

Dark Phoenix” is Disney’s first major tentpole release following the acquisition of the Fox slate, and it’s the final film with the current cast of X-Men characters before becoming part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The studio is projecting an opening between $40-50 million for “Dark Phoenix,” with independent trackers saying it could go as high as $55 million in what is expected to be a close race for the top spot against “Secret Life of Pets 2.”

A $55 million opening for “Dark Phoenix” would be just above the series low opening of the previous installment, 2016’s “X-Men: Apocalypse.” That film made $53 million in its opening

The Secret Life Of Pets 2 – Review

As most of the schools finally free the tots and teens for Summer break, it’s time to hop aboard the rickety rollercoaster that is the 2019 slate of animated feature films. To paraphrase All About Eve’s Margo Lane, “It’s a bumpy ride”. We started with the “better than expected’ modest thrills of the last of the How To Train Your Dragon trilogy. But sequels were not a sure bet as the Lego follow-up took a dive, quickly joined by the forgettable Wonder Park and Ugly Dolls. Laika’s Missing Link was an inventive ray of sunshine, but like most of their releases tepid box office kept the critical darling from soaring. Now comes another sequel as the folks at Universal’s animation off-shoot Illumination hope to have another franchise aside from Gru and the Minions (and the Seuss flicks like The Lorax and last year’s Grinch).

The Stars of The Secret Life of Pets 2 Share What They Love About Their Own 'Crazy' Pets
The Secret Life of Pets 2 follows in the pawsteps of its predecessor, exploring what our furry friends could be up to when we are out of the house.

It makes sense that the celebrities that lend their voices to this cast of critters are a group of famous animal lovers who are curious about what makes pets tick.

While Lake Bell, Dana Carvey and Harrison Ford, all do an excellent job of bringing the movie’s cuddly characters to life, that doesn’t mean they have the answers to what their own pets are thinking.

‘The Secret Life of Pets 2’ Review: Enjoyable Fluff Better Suited for Television

Illumination missed the boat on The Secret Life of Pets because the way they’ve told these stories thus far make them a lot more conducive to television than cinema. If that first film’s sprawling character list devolving into wild schemes and pratfalls barely adhering to the flimsy plot beneath wasn’t enough to prove it, composing The Secret Life of Pets 2 into three very disparate subplots forced together at the climax is. Moving to a long-form narrative format would supply breathing room to focus on one or two animals at a time while the others exist tangentially in the background until their episode arrives. We could follow Max (Patton Oswalt replacing persona non grata Louis C.K.) and Duke (Eric Stonestreet) one week and Gidget (Jenny Slate) the next.

You wouldn’t have to pretend everyone’s motivations align in contrived and often ludicrous ways simply because each

“The Secret Life Of Pets 2” Shortchanges Our Furry Friends

There’s an unfortunate imbalance to be found within The Secret Life of Pets 2. Last time, the ingenious concept of what our animal companions do when we’re not around was done to decent effect, creating an animal take on the Toy Story plot. Nothing on the level of Pixar, but still cute and fun. Here, the scales are tilted in the wrong direction. Far too much of this film, which admittedly is aimed at children, opts to be silly nonsense just meant to divert young eyes. The potential of the first movie is mostly abandoned. One aspect here is handled well, but the rest is disappointing and trying for an adult to sit through. Consider me very much let down. The film is a sequel, of course, to The Secret Life of Pets. Again, we follow along with the adventures of various animals while their owners are out and about.

‘Saturday Night Live’ Doesn’t Leave Much Room for Other Supporting Performers at the Emmys (Column)

‘Saturday Night Live’ Doesn’t Leave Much Room for Other Supporting Performers at the Emmys (Column)
For most of its run, “Saturday Night Live” has been a minor Emmy contender. Between 1976 and 2008, the NBC late-night sketch comedy series earned 101 nominations and 23 wins. Respectable — but not a juggernaut.

And then the dam broke. Since 2009, “SNL” has been on a tear, scoring 151 nominations and winning 44 more awards. That now brings the series’ grand total to 252 nominations, the most ever for any program.

Driving that dominance is a rule change that wound up propelling “Saturday Night Live” at the Emmys, but upending the supporting comedy actor and actress categories. In 2008, the Television Academy decided to retire the Emmy award for individual performance in a variety or music program — a bit of a hodge-podge category where talk-show hosts, sketch comedy players, musicians who fronted their own performance specials and others faced off.

In that category, “Saturday Night Live” rarely received much attention. Tina Fey was nominated in 2008, and before that,

Harrison Ford Talks ‘Indiana Jones’ Reboot, Visiting Disney’s ‘Star Wars’ Land

  • Variety
Han Solo has a good feeling about Disneyland’s Millennium Falcon.

Harrison Ford, who visited the park’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge attraction for its grand opening last week, summed up the addition — which includes an immersive ride based on Solo’s trusty spaceship — in one word: “incredible.” The actor shared his thoughts on the Falcon with Variety at Sunday’s premiere of “The Secret Life of Pets 2” at Westwood’s Fox Theatre.

“I think it works better than the one we used to use for the movies,” he joked.

Ford also discussed the upcoming reboot of another of his hit franchises, “Indiana Jones.” According to Indy himself, the much-anticipated Steven Spielberg film “should be starting to shoot sometime next week.”

“I’m looking forward to it,” he said. “Things are coming along well.”

The newest addition to Ford’s long list of franchise credits is Universal’s “The Secret Life of Pets.

Win A Family Four Pack Of Passes To The St. Louis Advance Screening of The Secret Life Of Pets 2

Illumination’s tenth feature, The Secret Life Of Pets 2, is the highly anticipated sequel to the 2016 comedic blockbuster that had the biggest opening weekend ever for an original film, animated or otherwise.

The film opens in theaters on June 7.

Packed with Illumination’s signature irreverence and subversive humor, this new chapter explores the emotional lives of our pets, the deep bond between them and the families that love them, and answers the question that has long intrigued every pet owner: What are your pets really doing when you’re not at home?

Terrier Max (Patton Oswalt) is coping with some major life changes. His owner (Ellie Kemper) is now married and has a toddler, Liam. Max is so worried about protecting the boy that he develops a nervous tic. On a family trip to a farm, Max and mutt Duke (Eric Stonestreet) encounter canine-intolerant cows, hostile foxes and a terrifying turkey,

Listen: Topher Grace on How ‘Saturday Night Live’ May Be TV’s Most Important Show
Topher Grace believes we may take “Saturday Night Live” for granted. After nearly 45 years, the late-night sketch series has become such an institution that it’s easy to forget the program’s unique place in TV history.

“There’s something special about ‘SNL’ and how it’s been in the same place the whole time,” Grace told Variety‘s My Favorite Episode podcast. “A lot of it is the genius of Lorne Michaels, which is that show is so successful he could have moved it. He could have put it in a bigger studio. There’s something so small about that studio space, it’s hard to make things look great. That’s the point of it. He gives it this live, tactile quality that has captured over the last four and a half decades what America is going through. It’s so immediate, there’s nothing else like it.

Movie Review – The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019)

The Secret Life of Pets 2, 2019.

Directed by Chris Renaud.

Featuring the voice talents of Patton Oswalt, Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Jenny Slate, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Dana Carvey, Hannibal Buress, Bobby Moynihan, Tiffany Haddish, Nick Kroll, Pete Holmes, Henry Lynch, Chris Renaud, and Harrison Ford.

Synopsis:

Continuing the story of Max and his pet friends, following their secret lives after their owners leave them for work or school each day.

There’s very little to say about The Secret Life of Pets 2, which continues Illumination’s depressingly successful formula of pandering to the masses with generic humor and stories designed to keep antsy children sitting still for 90 minutes. It’s hyperactive, bland, listless, and squanders the few intriguing concepts it does bring to the table by burying them under subplots, it’s impossible to become invested. During the climactic chase sequence (which starts out in the most unoriginal depiction

Dana Carvey mimicked the many sounds of Donald Trump in an appearance on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon on Friday night. While the former Saturday Night Live cast member appeared on the show to promote his return to The Secret Life of Pets 2, he ended up running through a gamut of political impressions.

Second Opinion – The Secret Life of Pets 2 (2019)

The Secret Life of Pets 2, 2019.

Featuring the voice talents of Patton Oswalt, Jenny Slate, Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Lake Bell, Hannibal Buress, Bobby Moynihan, Dana Carvey, Harrison Ford, Tiffany Haddish, Pete Holmes, Garth Jennings, Ellie Kemper, and Nick Kroll.

Synopsis:

Continuing the story of Max and his pet friends, following their secret lives after their owners leave them for work or school each day.

Despite arguably proving to be the most anodyne offering from Illumination Entertainment to date, 2016’s The Secret Life of Pets succeeded to the tune of $875 million worldwide, ensuring that a sequel would be loaded onto the animation house’s ruthlessly efficient, mid-budget conveyor belt as soon as possible.

And so, we have The Secret Life of Pets 2, a sequel that’s certainly no worse than its predecessor, but also not much better, and basically just as forgettable.

Why Dana Carvey Originally Quit Wayne's World Weeks Before Shooting

Why Dana Carvey Originally Quit Wayne's World Weeks Before Shooting
Wayne's World was nearly a very different movie. Dana Carvey says that he actually quit a few weeks before production was set to begin. The comedian plays Garth Algar in the movie alongside his Saturday Night Live co-star Mike Myers, who plays Wayne Campbell. The comedy was a huge success and built off of the popularity of the Wayne and Garth characters from SNL. However, Carvey didn't feel like he was being given a fair shake when it came down to the script.

In a new interview with satellite radio personality Howard Stern, Dana Carvey was asked about working on Wayne's World. Mike Myers was writing the script with Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner while Carvey was throwing in his ideas. However, there were some changes made. Carvey explains.

"Mike was writing it, and I was putting stuff in. Then I would see that the stuff wasn't in anymore. And so I actually,

Max becomes overly concerned about a new addition to his pack, Gidget is given custody of an important toy and Snowball becomes a freedom fighter for animals everywhere.

Illumination Entertainment is known primarily as the studio the Minions built. But it also found a hit in 2016 with The Secret Life of Pets, sold as a sort of Toy Story for domesticated critters. The movie raked in the best part of $900m at the global box office, making a sequel absolutely inevitable. Three years later, the same pets that drove the first film to multiplex success are back, sans the voice of controversial leading man Louis Ck,

Dana Carvey Says He Forgives Mike Myers for Allegedly Stealing Dr. Evil Character
An apparent rift existed between Mike Myers and Dana Carvey for years — and a big reason revolved around the diabolical fictional character Dr. Evil.

Carvey, a Saturday Night Live alum who became a household name along with Myers for their Wayne's World sketches and films, dropped by Howard Stern's SiriusXM Satellite Radio program on Wednesday.

There, he opened up about the animosity he felt toward Myers for allegedly stealing the Dr. Evil character to use in the Austin Powers films. Carvey claimed he was the first SNL castmember to do an impression of show creator and executive producer, Lorne Michaels....
