The Secret Life of Pets Movie

Hilarious comedy of pets in The Secret Life of Pets

The Secret Life of Pets is a movie showing pets in relation with their owners and with each-other. It is a 3D computer animated adventure comedy by Illumination Entertainment. It is written by Brian Lynch, Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio and directed by Chris Renaud and Yarrow Cheney.

It is life of a pet, a terrier named Max. He lives in a Manhattan apartment building with his owner Katie. Max is happy and satisfied with his life until he finds a new companion Duke, a sloppy mongrel. He was brought from a dog pound. Max doesn’t like Duke and there starts a rivalry between them but soon they have to forge a partnership to meet the challenge posed by Flushed Pets.

Snowball is an adorable white rabbit but with a black heart that doesn’t like happy pets. He and his army of Flushed Pets wage a war against all happy pets like Max and Duke. Snowball hatches a conspiracy against happy pets and their owners and his Flushed Pets are with him. Max and Duke have to come together to prevent Snowball and his Flushed Pets from doing any harm to happy pets and pet owners. But there is one more villain in the movie.

Just like Snowball, Gidget, a Pomeranian, is also forming a group of unhappy pets to nail down Max and Duke. Will Max be able to contain the double attack on his sovereignty and destroy his happy life? Computer animation brings cartoons to life and voice cast make them look real. Here Louis C.K. is giving voice to Max and Eric Stonestreet is giving voice to Duke. Kavin Hart is chosen for giving voice to Snowball and Gidget speaks in the voice of Jenny Slate.

The movie is an attempt to show that pets feel and experience emotions that human feel. They are envious of others and also they try taking revenge. It is a nice movie as it shows pets in different relations with each-other. First of all Max and Duke become rivals and then they become friends to meet the challenge posed by others. It will be released on July 8, 2016.
