Fast-paced, funny, and blessed with a talented voice cast, The Secret Life of Pets offers a beautifully animated, cheerfully undemanding family-friendly diversion.

The film [is] loud, colourful, frantic in pace, but less than the sum of its parts.
It is an incredibly simple yet irresistible idea for a movie. It's also exactly what you think it's going to be - no more, no less.
There's something quietly therapeutic about spending 90 minutes with some nutty, heroic furballs on a hero's journey with very low stakes.
The Secret Life of Pets is strong enough that parents won't fall into a catatonic state while watching it with their offspring.
Draws on the universal experience of pet ownership to draw out the "awww" in all of us. But the film butt-scoots by on its premise. There's not much more going on, thematically or emotionally below the surface.
As the owner of a Maine Coon I've weed-whacked into a goofy lion cut, I gulped when Snowball the bunny, a former magician's assistant, bellows, "All of us have suffered at the hands of man!"
The Secret Life of Pets effectively taps in to escapist entertainment. [Full Review in Spanish]
There are plenty of moments to keep you thrilled and make you laugh.
Fun for the whole family -- a fully realized universe that left me with a big smile on my face throughout.
While there isn't anything "bad" about the film ... overall, the film feels half-baked with the best scenes in the trailers.
There's nothing particularly bad about The Secret Life of Pets ... But workmanlike delivery isn't enough to make you stand out in a crowded marketplace.
Provides enough bright animation, visual gags, and comedic voice performances to get enough valuable entertainment for the whole family.
Disappointing animated movie that is more or less remaking Toy Story 1 just with Pets. And while the title promises lots of pets, it's mostly dogs that are running the show. Cats are just fat, bitchy or antagonizing, while dogs show all kinds of characteristics. That's frustratingly narrow minded and not particularly original. The animation is flawless and a few jokes work, but overall you can't shake off the feeling that you've seen it all before, and better.
Funny and sweet movie!
Pretty cute, but escalates really quickly and almost too fantastically. And was Snowball's psycho-dream murmuring, "That raccoon is lying! He's not the president!" an implicit jab at President Obama using an antebellum epithet for African-Americans? How did that get past the censors?
It always amazes me how Universal never cares to create anything remotely clever when it comes to their animations, and so once again they come up with a harmless little story that wants to be cute and funny (which it is sometimes) but is only bound to be quickly forgotten.
