FROM ILLUMINATION ENTERTAINMENT AND UNIVERSAL PICTURES, THE HUMANS BEHIND THE DESPICABLE ME FRANCHISE!
My family and I viewed The Secret Life of Pets in theaters and loved it! We couldn’t wait to get a hold of our own copy. There are few films that we want to watch over and over again and this is one of them. The humor in the movie is entertaining enough for both adults and children alike. My boys also couldn’t wait to see what Ritzy our cat thought of the movie.
Well, Ritzy just never looks impressed, but what do you expect from a cat. I wonder what he does all day when I’m gone? Do you ever wonder what your pets do all day? The Secret Life of Pets answers this question. The other topic that is explored in this film is pet adoption and what happens to pets when they are abandoned. While these topics are introduced in a fun way, they still bring attention to these issues that are important to pets. The voices of these characters are perfect! My boys had a sleepover and the kids had a great time watching this movie. They give it an A+ and I couldn’t agree more. This would be the perfect movie to pick up as a gift this holiday season to to buy for your own collection!
About The Secret Life of Pets:
In their fifth fully animated feature-film collaboration, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures present The Secret Life of Pets, a comedy about the lives our pets lead when we leave for work or school. Max, voiced by Louis C.K., is a loyal terrier living a perfectly happy existence until his owner, Katie (Ellie Kemper) brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet) a big, boisterous mutt she finds at the shelter. When Max and his unruly new “roommate” slip away from their dog-walker, they find themselves lost in the urban jungle of New York City. In an attempt to stay ahead of animal control and a rebel band of abandoned pets led by an unhinged bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart), they put aside their differences to survive the epic journey back home.
With an all-star voice cast including Louis C.K. (TV’s Louie), Eric Stonestreet (TV’s Modern Family), Kevin Hart (Ride Along Series), Jenny Slate (Zootopia), Ellie Kemper (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt), Lake Bell (TV’s Children’s Hospital), Dana Carvey (Wayne’s World), Hannibal Buress (Neighbors series), Bobby Moynihan (TV’s “Saturday Night Live”), Steve Coogan (Minions) and Albert Brooks (Finding Dory). The film is directed by Chris Renaud (Despicable Me franchise, Dr. Seuss’ the Lorax) and co-directed by Yarrow Cheney (Despicable Me franchise).
