The Secret Life of Pets isn't going to end up anywhere near the best animated film of the year, but it's entertaining enough that if you need to get the family out of the house on a scorching afternoon, this will be a fine choice for you.

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.
