Inside of a Manhattan apartment building, a terrier named Max (Louis C.K.) lives a pampered life with his owner Katie (Ellie Kemper) and hangs out with other pets like Chloe (Lake Bell), Mel (Bobby Moynihan), Buddy (Hannibal Buress), and Sweet Pea (Tara Strong). One day, Katie adopts a large, sloppy, hairy dog called Duke (Eric Stonestreet) from the pound. Max gets jealous when Katie pays more attention to Duke. Annoyed with Max’s condescending attitude, Duke tricks Max into traveling far into the city, where they are attacked by a gang of cats, including Ozone (Steve Coogan). The cats remove Max and Duke’s collars, causing them to both be caught by Animal Control. Duke fears that he will now be put down if he ends up back at the pound. They are rescued by a white rabbit called Snowball (Kevin Hart), who Max and Duke convince that they are vicious, abandoned pets.
Snowball brings Max and Duke into the sewers where they meet his cult of abandoned or mistreated animals called “The Flushed Pets,” who despise humans. Believing that Max and Duke hate humans, they invite them to join the group. They go through an initiation which involves being bitten by a one-fanged viper. Max and Duke kill the snake and Snowball finds out they’re domesticated; the Flushed Pets chase them out and Max and Duke escape to the Brooklyn harbor. Snowball vows to kill them for lying, and sets off to find them.
When Gidget (Jenny Slate), a white Pomeranian who has a crush on Max, finds out that he is missing, she recruits a savage red-tailed hawk called Tiberius (Albert Brooks) to help look for him. After being interrogated by the pair, Ozone directs them to the sewer. Gidget, Mel, Buddy, Chloe, Norman (Chris Renaud), Sweet Pea, and Tiberius trek across the harsh metropolitan environment in search of Max and Duke, with help from a paralyzed elderly Basset Hound called Pops (Dana Carvey). The group encounters Snowball, who vows to kill them as well. They escape, but Norman is later captured.
Having worked together to escape from their misadventures with Animal Control and Snowball’s Flushed Pets, Max and Duke begin to see a more positive side to each other’s company. They raid a sausage factory, indulging in large amounts of sausage, and Duke opens up to Max about a previous owner of his named Fred, who lived in Brooklyn. Fred had adopted Duke as a puppy and raised him lovingly, but one day when he ran outside the house to chase after something, he became lost and was taken by Animal Control, and Fred seemingly never came for him. Although Duke isn’t sure about whether or not Fred would want to see him again, Max convinces him that Fred would rejoice upon seeing him again and convinces Duke to set out in search of his former owner. They arrive at the right house, only to find out from a cat living there that Fred has died after Duke left. Morose and hurt, Duke accuses Max of trying to get rid of him and barks at the new owners of the house, who report him as a stray. Once again he is caught by Animal Control, while helping prevent Max from the same fate.
Max follows the truck, planning to rescue Duke, but he is pursued by Snowball and some of his Flushed Pets. When Snowball’s henchmen are subsequently also taken by the Animal Control as a result of the pursuit, Max and Snowball join forces to rescue their respective cronies. They chase down the Animal Control truck using a city bus, crashing it on the Brooklyn Bridge and stopping traffic. More of Snowball’s gang appear and, unaware of Max and Snowball’s new alliance, they try to kill Max on the Brooklyn Bridge until Gidget and the others save him. The truck starts to slide off the bridge; Snowball’s captured Flushed Pets escape, but the truck falls into the East River with Duke and Max inside. Max tries to unlock Duke’s cage, but the keys float away. Snowball jumps off the bridge into the water and brings Max the spare keys. Max rescues Duke and they get back to the surface, as the truck sinks to the bottom.
Using a taxi, all of the pets go back to the apartment district. Max displays his admiration for Gidget, who returns his feelings. Snowball reluctantly allows himself to be adopted by a little girl and the other Flushed Pets return to the sewers. The other pets return to and embrace their owners when they return and Max and Duke finally reunite with Katie, sparking a new friendship.
In a mid-credit scene, Snowball invites Mel and Buddy (dressed as a Minion from Despicable Me and a Barbaloot from The Lorax, respectively) to a party hosted by a rock obsessed poodle named Leonard. However, it is immediately interrupted when Leonard’s owner shows up. Although Leonard attempts to cover it up completely in presence of his owner, a chandelier crashes on the floor with one of the Flushed Pets, Tattoo, who had attended the party and attempted to hide in it.

Ever since the release of Despicable Me back in 2010, Illumination has really stepped up from their previous animated movies. Whether it be the aforementioned film, its sequel, its spin-off Minions, or the 2012 adaptation of Dr. Seuss’ The Lorax, it was quite a change with their latest entry The Secret Life of Pets.
The plot centers around Max (Louis C.K.), a terrier living happily with his loving owner Katie (Ellie Kemper) in New York City, but when she adopts a bigger dog named Duke (Eric Stonestreet) to live with them, Max is overwhelmed by his new roommate. The two opposing dogs must then work together however, before Katie gets back when they are lost in the big city.
For an original story done by Illumination, it does creatively borrow off the concepts of both Toy Story as well as the 2008 film Bolt, yet it flows out well with the voice cast bringing these characters to life which include stand-up comic Louis C.K. voicing the leading dog Max, Jenny Slate (Saturday Night Live, Zootopia) as Max’s potential love interest Gidget, and ‘Modern Family’ star Eric Stonestreet as Duke. With quick-witted, slapstick humor that feels reminiscent of Looney Tunes (even with a tendency to adlib lines in some scenes), the real scene stealer among this talented cast goes to comedian Kevin Hart voicing adorable, yet antagonistic rabbit Snowball.
While the littler ones will be kept engaged and entertained by the humorous animal characters as well as the obstacles they come across, to me personally the story feels rushed, especially the need for a little more emotional depth and better character development. I know there’s a lot more to offer in this story’s universe, so a sequel can’t be far behind from this underrated animated flick. Nevertheless, it certainly kept me laughing nearly throughout the movie’s 90-minute run time and it’s something that shouldn’t be taken for granted. I enjoyed it.
The Secret Life of Pets is a 2016 American 3D computer-animated buddy adventure comedy film produced by Illumination Entertainment. It is directed by Chris Renaud and Yarrow Cheney. In this movie, Max and his new found adopted dog Duke is captured by the Animal control as their collars are taken by the alley cats. They are rescued by a gang of sewer dwelling animals who hates the domestic life. From here, the journey of Max and Duke begins. This movie provides with all the humor and the adventure. I loved this movie. I have now started finding better movies through www.flickstree.com . It not only suggests great movies to watch, it also tells where you can watch the movie online.. Highly recommended.Touted as Toy Story with animals, the latest family-friendly adventure from Illumination Studios (Despicable Me, Minions) takes a light-hearted peek behind the door at the lives of pets residing in a Manhattan apartment block. All is well for these domesticated creatures until Max (Louis C.K.), a spoilt Terrier who loves his comfy existence, doesn’t return from a visit to the dog park, sparking a perilous journey throughout the Big Apple led by the indefatigable Pomeranian Gidget (Jenny Slate). The first half hour is full of laughs as we meet our eclectic group of pet protagonists, but once the trek through the streets commences the jokes dry up at an alarming rate, largely because it fails to add anything to the lost-in-the-big-scary-world formula. The characters are a mixed bag too, a few memorable ones carrying the bland other ones. The quiet ball of fury Gidget, the nonchalantly self-centred cat Chloe (Lake Bell) and the hyper-energetic bunny Snowball (Kevin Hart) leave the biggest impression. But it ticks all the right boxes to ensure kids will love it: bright and bubbly animation, a bopping soundtrack, non-stop visual gags, quotable dialogue, very few quiet moments and, in Snowball and Gidget, two pets who would be a hoot to own. Considering the potentially hilarious concept and the great opening act The Secret Life of Pets squanders it’s opportunity to land in the higher echelon of animated flicks, nevertheless it’s an easy, breezy 87 minutes of uncomplicated kiddie fun.I’ve had many parakeets in my younger life and boy, now I wish I had a nanny-cam back then.
The Secret Life of Pets was a cute, though not 100% original animation movie and even then, I found myself laughing out loud probably more than a dozen times. Not wanting to spoil the movie, but to state my favorite sight/sound-gag, think: TURTLES.
Thankfully, most of the jokes were for humans my size, but dang, were they old references. There’s a point of gearing a cartoon to please both kids and adults, but this felt like it was written in the early 90s. Eh, still, it made for some great humor and laughs out of me.
Apparently, you don’t know your pets take on human qualities when you’re gone and these NYC apartment building pets know how to party during your work hours. But, there has to be a plot to stretch this from a cute 5- minute YouTube video on the premise…so two dogs go missing and their friends, rebels and more are out to find them.
While there is a TON of cool shots in this movie, sometimes a tad overly convoluted, the film is hardly original. I’ve seen ALL of this before and that said, I still had a great time. There were enough jokes, great animation and adventure to keep up the pace.
You can tell, even with the said old script, the animators loved making this film. The details were amazing at times and there was a ton of heart in the making of this. When, in the same year, the lazy and sad production of Norm of the North comes out, it’s refreshing to get back to what makes animation great…again.
Final thoughts: In prep for my favorite month of the year, October, in less than 20 days, I’ve been catching up on a ton of horror movies. Usually, I can wait and devote the entire month of October to horror, but I just too excited this year. With this, I just needed a break from the gore and glad I landed on this fun intermission.
“The Secret Life Of Pets” does not obtain the reflective level of films from Pixar or Dreamworks, nevertheless , it can entertain at least most of the movie. The analogies with the “Toy Story” franchise are relevant, this causes the originality is reduced to a couple of jokes and an incredible animated landscapes, detailed with realistic, brilliant and vivid colors. Pets’ Story’ pretends to be a recycled version of the animation classic, same narrative theme, same characters, same relationships, worse results. Story is a sophistry – but, we knew its plot – however, the film benefits of the vastness of oral and visual jokes, the connection between the protagonists, its screenplay and its professional cast of voices to entertain children and amuse to adults.
Yarrow Cheney and Chris Renaud conceive an urban environment as compelling as soul of the pets, but the charm is inversely proportional until to fall in state of trance, in generic state, a linear state. It is a child product, but we cannot underestimate children, they need beneficial films and last production of Illumination does not offer it. Taking advantage of recurrent formulas and few surprises, the characters give life to the project, not with the same satisfaction of toys, nevertheless, they make sacrifices to achieve it.
Max (Louis CK) modestly lives with his owner Katie (Ellie Kemper) in a homey apartment in the center of Manhattan. What does Max do when Katie is not at home? Every morning, the adorable canine waits anxious and impatiently at the arrival of his owner, but he enjoys hour by hour with his friends of the building, other pets that do the same like Max; a self-centered and gluttonous cat called Chloe (Lake Bell), a distracted and grouch pug called Mel (Bobby Moynihan), a film bird and even a relaxed and unworried dachshund (Hannibal Burress). Ideal life for a domestic animal, unlimited food, friendly friends, a comfortable bed, a perfect owner, but what would happen if they aren’t two plates of food, three plates of food at home?
Max has the drama of a only child, after Katie decided to adopt to Duke (Eric Stonestreet), a huge dog coffee; from there, the similarities with the film’s toys are visible, two different beings who must join forces later a dispute between the two animals – I am amazed, it is the same premise -, they are defenseless in the real world, outside. Their enemies are a weak point which is added to the weaknesses of the film. The contrast of a cute white bunny (Snowball, Kevin Hart) with a wicked and vengeful rabbit is somewhat curious and very fruitful for the development, nevertheless, its ending is vain and unfinished, it did reduce consistency and weight to the story line.
Delicate it is observe that the prominence of the support characters was bigger than the main characters, as in the case of Gidget (Jenny Slate), madly in love for Max. She seeing that her platonic love does not return of the walk with his dog walker, she is alert and leaves to see her side most aggressive in order to rescue him, for this, she assembles one special squad and they take the path, an acceptable adventure. A girl in search of her lost brave prince, this plot works better than the ‘copy and paste’ from the main.
Illumination compensates for the lack of narrative originality with accustomed visual aspects of its movies, a sausage factory full of colors and charm curvatures, an alleyway with clothes hanging out on a rope and even sewers inhabited by stray animals are representations of the potential behind the minds of the company. Despite its visual magnetism and its auditory knowledge, it falls severely on the monotonous twists and predictable moments.
“The Secret Life Of Pets” wasted millions of opportunities, starting with a good story to tell; With what we saw, we wish that the life of our pets were a secret. Continuous laughs and sparkling graphics do not cover to the slow-paced of the film, nor vanish a history already narrated. It accomplishes the unique and poor function of a summer movie, entertain, nevertheless, we would have wished a product more beneficial. Pets had not to leave of their houses and their movie neither, one funny mistake but disappointing.
