The Secret Life of Pets - #SecretLifeofPets Review and Giveaway

I received products for review.  The opinions within this post are of my own and I was not influenced in any way.  Please do your own research before purchasing products or using services.  Your opinions and results may differ.

From the animation studio that brought audiences Despicable Me and Minions comes the best gift to bring home this holiday season, THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS! Starring an all-star voice cast including Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Jenny Slate, Ellie Kemper, Lake Bell, Steve Coogan, and Albert Brooks, THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS will be available on Digital HD November 22 and on 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray™, DVD, and On Demand December 6 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD versions feature nearly an hour of bonus content, including three hilarious mini-movies: the all-new Norman Television and Weenie PLUS Mower Minions which debuted in theaters and is now available to own.

This holiday season, the answer to the question “Ever wonder what your pets do when you’re not home?” is answered with 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.

I own a cat and a dog and I'm not ashamed to say I sometimes wonder what they're thinking.  The Secret Life of Pets takes a spin on what goes through animals' minds.  The main character is Max, a dog, who is always super stoked when his owner, Katie, is around.  But when she leaves, the thoughts that go through Max's mind are of loneliness.  One day Katie brings home another dog, Duke.  Things are a little hairy between the two dogs and the adventure ensues.  They end up in the "scary" world of New York City and have to keep themselves out of trouble (or at least try to).  Through it all, the dogs end up together as best friends.  

There's several other animal appearances throughout the film, with the maniacal bunny being my favorite.  There's plenty of humor and enough going on to keep you engaged.  There is some mild violence and talk of pets killing humans.  All in all, I liked this movie and how it played out.  



Win It!

One person will win The Secret Life of Pets Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack.
