Out of curiosity, how many of you were able to make it to the theaters to see, The Secret Life of Pets? We aren’t ones to frequent the movies, but this one was a no-brainer. My kids talked about this movie from the first time they caught a glimpse of a preview, which was months prior to the release. With that being said, I made sure that we were there on opening day to catch this film, and it was amazing! Our entire family enjoyed this movie! Which was why it made it on our Must Have list.
This holiday season, the answer to the question, “Ever wonder what your pets do when you’re not home?” is answered with the release of The Secret Life of Pets from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. The humans behind the Despicable Me franchise presents America’s top-grossing original film of the year, the animated comedy is a worldwide hit with over $843 million in global ticket sales.
The 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™, DVD and Digital HD versions feature nearly an hour of bonus content, including three hilarious mini-movies: the all-new Norman Television and Weenie PLUS Mower Minions which debuted in theaters and is now available to own.
In their fifth fully animated feature-film collaboration, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures present The Secret Life of Pets, 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.
