  • Steve Persall

    The Secret Life of Pets is funnier than Zootopia and fresher than Finding Dory. Bonus points for a genuinely touching finale that had me crying behind my 3-D glasses.

    Here's something dog people and cat people can agree on: The Secret Life of Pets is hilarious, sweet and as fun for parents as the brats they take with them to the movies.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    The formula may be familiar, but the personalities are completely fresh, yielding a menagerie of loveable — if downright ugly — cartoon critters banding together to help these two incompatible roommates from ending up on the streets.

    Variety Full Review
  • Amy Nicholson

    Where Dory was saccharine, Pets is anarchic. It’s the difference between Mickey Mouse and Looney Tunes or The Muppets, where crazy creatures take aim at each other with cannons. That sense of play infects the animation, which favors fun over photo-realism.

    MTV News Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    The Secret Life of Pets is strong enough that parents won’t fall into a catatonic state while watching it with their offspring. Unlike top-notch animated fare, however, it’s questionable whether this can be considered “destination fare” for the single adult.

  • Kate Taylor

    If children will be entertained by the unwilling roommates’ narrow escape from cats, dog catchers and the Flushed Pets, it is the mass of surrounding detail, from the glittering Manhattan skyline and Gidget’s sleek modernist pad to the animals’ remarkable mastery of domestic technology, that will impress the adults.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    An animated fluffball that does everything to drive you crazy and ends up by being totally irresistible.

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Peter Hartlaub

    Laughs are laughs, whether you know some of the punch lines ahead of time or not. And The Secret Life of Pets has plenty of laughs.

    The disposable, summer diversion that many families will be looking for as temperatures rise and the start of school seems so far away, but most won’t be able to remember after they see it. Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    In much the same way that the smash "Zootopia" demonstrated that creatures of different culture and class and species are better off when they come together, The Secret Life of Pets is a testament to teamwork and friendship and fixing the rifts that divide us. Let the fur - and the warm, fuzzy feelings - fly.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Albert Brooks shows up as a red-tailed hawk whose desire to help clashes with his killer instincts; Dana Carvey is pitch-perfect as the ancient basset hound whose back legs are in a wheelchair.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Katie Rife

    As it progresses, The Secret Life Of Pets starts to overreach dramatically, and loses some of its charm in the process.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Brian Truitt

    Secret Life anchors itself on an oh-so-familiar concept but sparkles most when imagining some of its crazier shenanigans.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Bilge Ebiri

    The Secret Life of Pets is an ADD-addled mess of a movie — and that, amazingly, is its charm.

    Village Voice Full Review
  • Wendy Ide

    The latest film from Chris Renaud (Despicable Me) and his team is a madcap caper full of densely-packed sight gags, dizzying action set pieces and a healthy side-helping of Renaud trademark silliness.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Drew McWeeny

    Like any comedy that throws 1000 jokes at you, some land and some don’t, but it’s the confident, cheerful energy of the humor that carries the day.

    Hitfix Full Review
  • Chris Nashawaty

    Like a dog that endlessly chases its tail in circles, Pets is amusing for a while, then it just tires itself out.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Crafted by much of the same creative team behind the "Despicable Me" franchise, The Secret Life has wit, for sure, but it could use more balls.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Dominick Suzanne-Mayer

    For a film designed to spawn ancilliary products and sequels, Pets is not entirely without its charms

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • Ben Croll

    Moves like a bat out of hell from frame one, though if you’re looking for any kind of emotion you might be barking up the wrong tree.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    Its animal spin on unlikely-buddies interplay is amusing enough, but hardly as inspired as the teaser promised.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Moira Macdonald

    There’s a funny, offbeat movie lurking in the details here.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Kenji Fujishima

    The film's messy pile-up of comic diversions can be exhilarating in the moment—the chaos of an id given free rein.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Erin Whitney

    It might not be remembered in years to come, but it’s good family entertainment, and sometimes that’s enough.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    The Secret Life of Pets is adequate animated entertainment, amusing while it lasts but not especially memorable except as a catalog of compromises and missed opportunities.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    For all the genuine charm on display, you may be disappointed to find that manic activity overtakes said charm, and that more isn’t made of a simple, clever premise.

    TheWrap Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    The Secret Life of Pets is a pleasant-enough movie that would have been much better had it lived up to its title.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    It’s not ground-breaking, but there are laughs, and it is a good audience movie.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    A sweet, harmless bit of big-screen fluff, and one of the more enjoyable, and cuddly, animated films to hit theaters so far this year.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Robbie Collin

    To borrow a screenwriting buzz-phrase, "fun and games" is all you get, and the lack of meaningful connective tissue between the antics means the film begins to flag far earlier than it should.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Jonathan Pile

    An affable adventure with a strong voice cast. What it lacks in originality, it claws back with strong visual gags and a witty script.

    Empire Full Review
  • Cath Clarke

    There are some funny-sweet observations about pets and our projections on to them. And the animation is expressive.... But the manic pace, piling on the action sequences, is exhausting.

    Time Out London Full Review
  • Jordan Mintzer

    Like the professional dogwalker who can’t exactly keep count of Max and his cohorts, it feels like the filmmakers are juggling too many chatty creatures at once, while trying to maintain a plot that tends to grow more outlandish as the story progresses.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Bill Graham

    While there’s rarely a story beat that isn’t expected, there’s just enough humor from its all-star comedy voice cast to enjoy the journey.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    This is a two-star movie with moments of sheer exuberance and clever good fun — but just as many scenes that had me tilting my head like a dog trying to figure out what the WHAT is taking place before his very eyes.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The humor is generic. And the film’s most obvious comparison — it’s been called “Toy Story” with animals — only points up the one thing “Pets” lacks, and that any animal lover will tell you their furred and feathered friends have, in spades: personality.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    Speaking of Looney, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention how violent this pre-tween farce is. Slapfights, brawls, violent death and near-death experiences abound. Along with butt-sniffing and toilet-sipping (at a party) gags.

    Movie Nation Full Review
  • Joe Morgenstern

    There’s no secret life because there’s no life, only the promise of pets in perpetual motion.

    Wall Street Journal Full Review
  • Justin Chang

    Resisting the temptation to invest its characters and storytelling with any particularly winsome, distinctive qualities, the film quickly devolves into an infernally busy and overextended chase sequence crammed with desperately unfunny comic patter and noisy, pointless action.
