Early in 2016, we saw a lot of movies at the movie theater. Most of those were kids movies & before each one, we saw the preview for The Secret Life of Pets. As soon as we saw the preview, we knew it was one we had to see as soon as possible.
If you haven’t seen it yet, The Secret Life of Pets is a story about the lives our pets have when we leave them and head off to work or school. Max (Louis C.K.) has a perfectly happy life with his owner, Katie. That is until she brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet), who is a big, loud mutt that she adopted from the local shelter. Max is NOT happy about Duke coming to live with him and Katie and after the two dogs get away from their dog walker, they find themselves lost in New York City. They need to avoid being caught by Animal Control AND the band of abandoned pets led by unhinged bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart). Max and Duke will have to work together and put aside their differences to survive the journey back home to Katie.
The Secret Life of Pets features an all-star voice cast: 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).
