“Ever wonder what your pets do when you’re not home?”

The answer might surprise you just a little bit.  Especially when it comes in the form a wonderfully original animated movie called The Secret Life of Pets.  The movie follows some adorable pets and what the zany adventures they get into while we humans are off at work or school.  One such critter is Max- a terrier living at the king’s life at home until his owner brings Duke home.

Duke is quite the large and  boisterous mutt.  When the two new house mates slip away from the dog walker, they find themselves lost in New York City while trying to keep a step ahead of both animal control and a gang of abandoned pets ruled by Snowball, a slightly insane bunny.  The movie is a blast for kids and adults and is genuinely entertaining with some big stars lending their voices to the characters.  Some of the voices include Louis CK, Ellie Kemper, Eric Stonestreet, and Kevin Hart.  The release on home video includes some great extras, as well.
