Movies in Review: “The Secret Life of Pets”

The_Secret_Life_of_Pets_posterHow cute and amazing was the trailer for this movie. When I first watched it, it made me smile. Anticipation and excitement for the release of this movie was built months ago. I was a little annoyed at how early they began marketing this movie because every week my kid was asking me can we go see “The Dogs”, that’s what he called the film…lol. I was happy to finally be able to announce to him that we were going to see The Dogs today. When I picked my kid up from daycare on Friday, he wanted to do nothing more than head straight to the theater…that’s my kid…lol.


As much as I loved the trailer, I can honestly say I loved the movie just as much. This is such a cute and beautifully animated film with bright colors and interesting and fun characters. The story was great too, and very appropriate for the young ones. My kid was cracking up on this movie, and he’s 3. I loved the voices picked for each character, but let’s keep it really, Kevin Hart’s voice as that bunny took the cake. I know all of you adults could see Kevin Hart’s expressions shine through that bunny, which only made that character even more funny…lol. Hart’s voice probably was a little too much for the bunny, but it worked. Fluffy Gidget, and the fat cat with the attitude, Chloe, were also among my favorites. 


This was the #1 film at the box office this weekend, and deservedly so. My kid definitely gave his stamp of approval, walking out of the theater screaming “That was awesome!” I looked at him, smiled, and thought “It sure was”…A+

I am creative by nature, and analytical by design. My escape from the riff raff of everyday life is a great movie. I do not title myself as a movie critic. I am a part of the viewing audience simple and plain. I started this blog to give a real life review of films, as an avid movie goer. Movies are expensive, and not always worth the money. I hope my reviews help you in your descision.
