The Secret Life of Pets DVD Review


Are you looking for a cute gift to give someone who loves movies and pets? The Secret Life of Pets movie comes out on Blu-Ray, DVD & Digital HD on December 6th!!! We were lucky enough to get an advance copy of the movie along with some extra goodies to help bring this review to you! As soon as we received the movie it was confiscated by my Olivia who in return has yet to bring it down out of her room! We went and saw this movie in the theaters and we loved it so much!



Christmas is right around the corner and since this movie comes out soon why not add it to your holiday shopping list! Plus on the DVD you get 3 mini movies along with it! The Secret Life of Pets is a comedy about the lives our pets lead when we leave for work or school. Max, voiced by Louis C.K., is a loyal terrier living a perfectly happy existence until his owner, Katie (Ellie Kemper) brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet) a big, boisterous mutt she finds at the shelter. When Max and his unruly new “roommate” slip away from their dog-walker, they find themselves lost in the urban jungle of New York City. In an attempt to stay ahead of animal control and a rebel band of abandoned pets led by an unhinged bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart), they put aside their differences to survive the epic journey back home. This movie is absolutely hilarious and makes me think what does our dog, Yoda do when we leave him home alone! Such a sweet movie too! I think it was hard for me to pick a favorite character out of the movie because each one of them have their own personalities which make them each unique in their own way!
