The title sounds promising, but "The Secret Life of Pets" offers little more than a generic, overused premise and a loud antics-filled story.

Hilarious Characters Save Film The Secret Life Of Pets has a pretty bland script with things feeling conventional, But what saves it is it’s beautiful animation and great likable characters (Gidget and Snowball were awesome in particular).

Charming, but I was expecting better. Kevin Hart was the standout as the psychotic "kill all humans" bunny with Jenny Slate a close second as the chipper (but don't get her angry) Gidget. Heck, even Dana Carvey has a mild comeback as an elderly wheelchair-bound hound. Overall it was enjoyable, but nothing stands out to make this a classic.

'The Secret Life of Pets' is the newest offering from animation studio Illumination. Their shaky track record isn't helped much here. We get a varying degree of likable characters grouped in a scattershot zippy comedy, with a plot lifted (beat-for-beat) straight from the first two 'Toy Story's. It's lame and predictable, from a storytelling standpoint. Opportunities for easily obtainable heartwarming moments are completely passed over. However, this movie isn't trying to have more drama than needed. It's main concern is goofy antics. The collection of pratfalls, animal hi-jinx, and random one-liners, are all a mixed bag. Most of the misses were not worthy of a groan or eye-roll. I still had a fair amount of laughs. I liked how no two animals looked, moved, or sounded alike. …
