Unleashed - Film Review

I received product 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.

In UNLEASHED, a cosmic event turns Emma's dog and cat into two perfect guys, forcing her to reconsider her outlook on dating, hilariously work out her trust issues, and ultimately learn to love
herself.

STARRING:
KATE MICUCCI | JUSTIN CHATWIN | STEVE HOWEY | HANA MAE LEE | JOSH BRENER WITH ILLEANA DOUGLAS AND SEAN ASTIN




Film Synopsis:

Emma, a brilliant but awkward app designer, moves to San Francisco
after a massive betrayal by her boyfriend with only her beloved
pets, an adorable cat and an energetic mutt, in tow. One night,
drawn by the light of a Supermoon, Emma’s pets escape into the
night and are transformed into full-grown men, forcing Emma to
reconsider her outlook on dating and hilariously work out her trust
issues.

My Review:

If chick flicks are your thing, then Unleashed is for you.  The premise of the story has been told several times - a person gets transformed into someone or something else when a magical occurrence happens.  In Unleashed, this event causes her cat and dog to turn into grown men.  The cat, Ajax, becomes a modeling sensation named Diego and the dog, Summit, becomes a man named Sam.  Both pets men behave like their respective animal beings and that's where a lot of the laughs come from.  Sam chases balls and Diego finds himself caught in a tree, among other animalistic characteristics.  Emma, the owner of the cat and dog, does not know that it's her pets who are now in human form.  She develops relationships with the men and learns lessons about herself along the way.

This independent film is a multiple award winner, and I enjoyed viewing it.
