The Se­cret Life of Pets

film / 6.20pm / Sky Cin­ema Pre­miere

TV Times - - Saturday -

this vi­brant piece of CGI an­i­ma­tion, from the mak­ers of De­spi­ca­ble Me and Min­ions, may not have a wildly orig­i­nal tale to tell but the sheer lu­nacy and sharp, witty script make this a very en­joy­able ex­pe­ri­ence. Self-ob­sessed ter­rier Max’s nose is put out of joint when his own­ers take in stray mon­grel Duke, but then the two pooches get lost in New York and need res­cu­ing by the other pets in their apart­ment block. The voice cast is top notch, in­clud­ing big hit­ters Steve Coogan, Louis CK, Al­bert Brooks and El­lie Kem­per, with co­me­dian Kevin Hart a par­tic­u­lar high­light as a psy­chotic bunny. The hu­mour may veer oc­ca­sion­ally to­wards the cruder end of the spec­trum, but it’s a com­edy that a broad age range will find great fun.
