The Secret Life of Pets Review - 4/5 Stars
I had high hopes for this film, and it really lived up to my expectations. There have been tons of animated animal movies, but the presentation The Secret Life of Pets offers gives the viewer a fresh spin on the animal movie genre.
The movie will resonate well with pet owners both past and present due to the humorous and light-hearted take the film uses to present its characters. Almost every type of domesticated pet has a role in this film to one degree or another, and the pacing was well-set for a kids movie. The humor is well-written and not overdone while the story is clear and straight forward (with some surprising twists along the way.)
This film will be of interest to audiences of all ages, and I would highly recommend it on the basis of its clever writing, it's star-studded voice cast, and it's lighthearted tone. Definitely go check this one out!
