The whole idea that there is a life that humans do not know about when they live in their residence is not exactly original storytelling. We’ve seen it in The Brave Little Toaster and three Toy Story films. While those films focused on inanimate objects, we hardly ever seen a film that centers on pets, and if you’re a pet owner like myself, you often wonder what exactly goes on when you are way – unless you have cameras to watch over them.

So like those animated films, The Secret Life of Pets explores an exaggerated version of that narrative. While Illumination entertainment tells a hilarious story that is a culmination of every story of a pet trying to get back to its master mixed with Hanna Barbara cartoon vibes, it doesn’t quite reach the emotional level of tear shedding you would see in a Pixar film. Not a huge takeaway, but the film feels more like a Tom and Jerry cartoon that goes on a bit longer than it should. Read my full review below.
