Critic Reviews for The Secret Life of Pets
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!"
Audience Reviews for The Secret Life of Pets
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.
