Pampered terrier Max (voice of Louis C.K.) is shocked when his owner brings home a huge, sloppy mongrel named Duke (Eric Stonestreet) from the dog pound. An intense rivalry quickly sparks between the two pets, with a jealous Max desperate to regain the attention he once had. However, the duo must put their differences to one side when cunning rabbit Snowball (Kevin Hart) begins to build an army of neglected ex-pets intent on getting revenge on all happily-owned pets and their owners. With the help of the other animals in his Manhattan building, Max must put a stop to Snowball's evil schemes before it's too late. The film also includes the voice talents of Steve Coogan, Jenny Slate and Lake Bell.

Synopsis
This animated comedy from Illumination Entertainment asks the question: what do our pets do all day when we're not home? For the critters living in a Manhattan apartment building, the answer is: whatever they want! A terrier named Max (voice of Louis C.K.) regularly invites his friends to hang out at his place while his owner (Ellie Kemper) is gone, but his quiet life is upended when said owner also takes in Duke (Eric Stonestreet), a stray mutt whom Max instantly dislikes. Their feud eventually causes both of them to get lost in New York City, and as they work together to find their way home, they cross paths with a vicious bunny (Kevin Hart) who plans to lead a group of abandoned pets on a mission of revenge against humanity. Jenny Slate, Albert Brooks, Lake Bell, Hannibal Buress, Tara Strong, Steve Coogan, Dana Carvey, and Bobby Moynihan also lend their voices to the film, which was directed by Chris Renaud (DESPICABLE ME 2) and Yarrow Cheney.

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"Cinco Paul, Ken Daurio, and Brian Lynch’s script includes some clever observations on the dynamic between animals and humans, and some funny lines 'for the grownups'..." -- Grade: B
Katie Rife (7 Jul 2016, )
Boston Globe
"THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS delivered the trailer of the year by giving just a hint of what your beloved pooches and kitties do the moment you’re out the door..."
Tom Russo (7 Jul 2016, )
Empire
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t’s a likable film, with a witty script worthy of the comedic talent providing the voices."
Empire Staff (20 Jun 2016, )
Entertainment Weekly
"THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS anthropomorphizes the things we love, endowing them with colorful voices and oddball personalities....Louis C.K. lends his slightly neurotic tonsils to our hero, Max..." -- Grade: B-
Chris Nashawaty (7 Jul 2016, )
Hollywood Reporter
"On the technical side, there are some marvels here -- especially Renaud’s vision of a vertically exuberant New York City, with skyscrapers stretching beyond the frame and fire escapes leading forever upwards into different apartments and different lives, as if we’re seeing everything from the viewpoint of a dog..."
Jordan Mintzer (16 Jun 2016, )
New York Times
"Fans of 'Modern Family' will be happy to hear Eric Stonestreet as a big furry dog. Fans of Kevin Hart who want more after CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE and RIDE ALONG 2 will enjoy his impersonation of an angry bunny."
A. O. Scott (7 Jul 2016, )
RogerEbert.com
3 stars out of 4 -- "THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS is a kind-hearted, sweet story about the unique relationship not only between pets and their owners but between pets and major cities like New York..."
Brian Tallerico (8 Jul 2016, )
Rolling Stone
3 stars out of 4 -- "[T]otally irresistible....[The filmmakers] know how to use this TOY STORY with critters to get loads of laughs and put a lump in your throat."
Peter Travers (6 Jul 2016, )
The Atlantic
"[T]here’s something quietly therapeutic about spending 90 minutes with some nutty, heroic furballs on a hero’s journey with very low stakes."
Sophie Gilbert (8 Jul 2016, )
The Guardian
3 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t does deliver brilliantly when it comes to visual jokes, action set pieces, physical comedy and unabashed silliness."
Wendy Ide (26 Jun 2016, )
Variety
"[T]he personalities are completely fresh....PETS is the studio’s most accomplished feature, from both a story and animation standpoint, tapping into an endlessly expandable core concept..."
Peter Debruge (16 Jun 2016, )
