If the sweet, animated 2016 film "The Secret Life of Pets" was mostly for kids, its new sequel might be for that segment of the audience that buys the tickets.Oswalt is a fine replacement for Max, able to connect with the character's timidity, wonder and blossoming courage. He is helped by a gruff farm dog voiced by Harrison Ford, who unfortunately muddies his first animated voice role with some hypermasculinity.Even so, most of the film is carefully constructed, switching from plot to plot to plot while also incorporating old characters -- Dana Carvey's elderly Basset hound and Hannibal Buress as Buddy the dachshund -- in an increasingly complex patchwork, fed by a lively soundtrack that includes Stevie Wonder, Jefferson Airplane, Coolio and ZZ Top.As signs of how well engineered this movie is, a cover of Bill Withers' "Lovely Day" is used at the end, a callback to the original song's appearance in the first film. Max is clearly the emotional center of the film but Snowball's journey is just weird, starting as a bunny who plays a dress-up superhero, morphing into a real superhero who is revealed to be anything but, before proving he is a superhero, kind of.
