User Reviews

Harmless family fun with enough laughs for adults as well
15 June 2019 | by coombsstephenSee all my reviews

I didn't see the first film but this one gives a good laugh to anyone who has had a pet. The characters are funny and fit the character of the animals well.

The animation is good without being too much and the writing is along the lines of despicable me and others, with the slapstick and jokes pitched about right.

It isn't a classic like despicable me but it is certainly worth a watch for children and adults alike.
