About the Movie
Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, and Kevin Hart lend their voice talents to this action/adventure comedy taking a hilarious look into the lives of Pets. Set in a Manhattan apartment building, pets gather to start their day as the two-legged residents head for work and school. The head hound is a quick-witted terrier rescue, whose position at the epicenter of his master's universe is suddenly threatened when she comes home with Duke, a sloppy mongrel with no polish. The two soon find themselves on the mean streets of New York, where they meet the adorable white bunny Snowball. It turns out that Snowball is the leader of an army of pets that were abandoned and are determined to get back at humanity and every owner-loving pet. The dogs must thwart this plot and make it back in time for dinner.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: What should have been an enthusiastic tummy rub doesn't merit more than a grudging pat on the head.
Fresh: The Secret Life of Pets is strong enough that parents won't fall into a catatonic state while watching it with their offspring.
Fresh: The big chase scenes and action-movie adventures are fine. But what delights here are the small details of what happens once we close the door - the standard poodle who throws a heavy-metal party, or the dachshund who gets massages.
Fresh: An amusing animated adventure full of talking animals that should please both children and their parents.
Waste of time
Movie had a very un-original plot that was very poorly put together. Kevin Heart as a bunny was extremely annoying. I will never get that time back.
Not what I was expecting
I guess I saw the trailers too many times and had some preconcieved ideas for the film. I real disappointment. Worse film for the year for me.
Watched for about 20 minutes & gave up. Advertised as a "cute" pet movie, but it goes into a bit darker place, with an uninspiring story. Maybe it got or ended better, but you'll have to read other reviews to get that...ALL of the scenes in the preview/trailer came from the first moments of the film--never a good indicator.
