i have a son who can't talk, but communicates well. He bought a toy dog Max before the movie came out. Now he's not a huge movie watcher, but if it has a fish or a dog in it he'll watch it. I took him to the theater, and he saw the picture of Max the dog. He pointed at it and I told him that's the movie we're going to see. He smiled big. My six year old boy along with every other kid in the theater laughed so hard throughout the whole movie. My son rarely laughs at funny parts of movies, bc he doesn't understand it, but this movie he understood and laughed, and he made me laugh. He was hugging me throughout the whole movie that was his was of saying thank you mommy, I love this movie. His favorite scene that he laughed the hardest at was when Max and the other dog find a sausage factory and are in sausage heaven. Every kid loved that scene. After the movie we had to go to Walmart and he found a talking Max plush toy. He's been carrying him around all over. I took my son to see Zootopia, and half way through he got bored, but my teenage daughters loved it, why? The plot was geared towards grown kids and adults, however Secret life of pets the plot is so simple that kids absolutely love it, and for that I loved it! My kid sat through the whole movie and the credits he didn't want to leave. By the way my teen daughters loved that movie, too. Remember, it's suppose to be a kids movie, not an adult movie, and this one is the kids kid movie! Love it!

The Secret Life of Pets is a warm, fun, family friendly movie. It has less of the tiresome pop-culture gags in it than some other animated releases. It keeps the humor within more traditional themes as an older Disney movie might do which renders it suitable for anyone of any age.

While much of the story is charming and well paced without feeling rushed, it does run out of steam near the end where it drags a bit and feels overstretched.

The lead characters are likable and interesting but there are too many. They are not as fleshed out and some of them are not in the film enough to make an impact. The film feels over-populated as a result.

A vast majority of the film is incredibly entertaining, but not all the jokes work. In the final act they are not as well-timed and become a bit too obvious and childish.

However, The Secret Life of Pets is beautifully and vibrantly animated. It features brilliant colors, meticulously rich backgrounds and well-modeled character designs. The music score is whimsical and lively.

It is also very wittily and often hilariously scripted. Some of the best lines come from Snowball and there are great references to other movies such as Grease, Saturday Night Fever and Some Like it Hot. As said, much of the story is charming with enough of the entertainment factor.

Lastly, the voice acting is terrific. Louis C.K., Kevin Hart, Albert Brooks and Steve Coogan coming off as the best.

Overall, there is much to enjoy in The Secret Life of Pets, though it is more a good film than a great one.

Great animated movie! Adults will enjoy this as much as the kids. We're 82 & 63 years of age and both of us laughed until tears were running down our cheeks.

The story, characters, action and dialogue are drop-dead HILARIOUS! For those of us who have dog fur babies, so much of the plot and animal behavior rings true. I found myself constantly belly-laughing at the antics of every character. Another win from the studio that gave us the Minions.

Not as good as I was expecting. I thought it would be a more fun movie. It has a few moments, especially early. When the pets are out of the house in their quest (don't want to give away the plot), there never seems to be an urgency to return home before their owners return from work. The grandkids sort of liked it, but haven't wanted to watch it again as they have other movies, such as The Croods, Despicable Me and others.

Great Movie, My son loved it.. Recommended for children who love animals, especially dogs. It is rated PG, which means, Parental Guidance. Do not put the movie in and leave the room because there's some scary parts for young children. Other than that, which isn't an issue, just a statement, I love it!!!!

My 5 year old and 2 1/2 year old don't sit through an entire movie very often. They usually get bored and want to watch something else. Their Grammy had taken them to the theater to see this and they loved it so I purchased it. They have watched it at least a dozen times over the past couple weeks and will sit through the entire thing which gives me a little time to get other things done. I have watched it as well and it is really funny even from a parent's perspective.

Another wonderful movie from illumination. This is a great family movie but may move a little fast for the younger ones. I am an avid fan of animated movies and found the plot line to be funny although I am sure there are large edited strips on the floor. I found this to be a great addition to my collection.
