THE SECRET LIFE OF PETS REVIEWED

“The Secret Life of Pets” proves that Illumination is here to stay in American animation. That being said, there’s something to their whimsical throwback style that feels like an affront to modern animation. Too many modern animated movies want to be the colorful equivalent of live-action cinema. It’s refreshing to see a concept that seems to evoke MGM and WB in the 1950s with its silly animal antics and desire to play broad. Plus, this has to be the first film in ages in which I can stand Kevin Hart. He plays a great bunny.

The story has been told several times before, but the collection of amazing character actors and comedians mines something fresh from the material. Adults won’t necessarily care or remember the names of the pets after the film ends. But, you will be entertained. The sheer value of base entertainment gets treated like fluff anymore and I hate that. That’s why I loved watching this film and implore Illumination to keep up this mentality. Not everything has to be so serious.
