The Secret Life of Pets (2016)

The kind of movie that is pleasant to watch with good animation and likeable characters, but not very memorable overall. It’s sort of a buddy comedy about two dogs who have a rocky start when their owner presents one of them as the housemate to the other, who tries his best to get rid of the new dog.

There’s really nothing there that leaves a stronger imprint: it lacks a major villain to focus the plot, the central character relationship works but isn’t exactly original and the movie can’t ever decide what it wants to be and jumps from scene to scene and fills it with moments that on its own are quite amusing, but never really cohere into a strong plot or engaging experience.

It’s a nice, short time-waster you’ve forgotten the moment you step out of the cinema.
