Movie Review: The Secret Life of Pets (2016)

Film Title: The Secret Life of Pets
Length: 1 hr and 27 Mins
Released: 2016 
Genre: Comedy & Action/Adventure
Rating: PG
Where I Got It: On Netflix

The quiet life of a terrier named Max is upended when his owner takes in Duke, a stray whom Max instantly dislikes.


What a cute movie. I can't help but love talking animal movies. They are simply the best and always a good time. 

This movie follows Max who has had the best life with his beloved human. Sure, he gets upset when she leaves for some "unknown reason" everyday, but when she is gone he gets to hang out with the animals in his complex. Well, one day his human brings home a big strange dog to live with them. Things happen and we get to see the other side of the coin with animals who were abandoned and hurt by humans. Drama goes on, laughs, and a hidden moral lesson. 

This was a for sure a PG film. Lots of adult comedy and underlying dark parts like with the Falcon. It was done tastefully and I liked it. 

The animation was done well, not amazing, but it was good. 

I LOVED THE CAT! That cat is my soul sister. If I were to be a cat that would be me. The cat reminded me a lot of Mamyia too. 

Not sure what else to say. It was simply a cute film that adults and kids would enjoy. Not the best film in the entire world, but it was for sure entertaining. Out of five stars, I'll give this 4 stars.
