This holiday season, the answer to the question “Ever wonder what your pets do when you’re not home?” is answered when The Secret Life of Pets comes to Digital HD November 22, 2016 and 4K Ultra HD™, Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand December 6, 2016 from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. I am happy to be working with Universal Entertainment on a sponsored campaign to share this with you. Plus, we are HUGE fans of this movie! If you haven’t already seen it, I know you’re going to love it.
The weekend it came out, I took Tati to see The Secret Life of Pets. The last couple of months, since she came to live with me, Tati has become quite obsessed with our dog, Winston. In the beginning, she worried so much about him being sad when we had to leave him at home alone. I think that’s part of the reason she loved The Secret Life of Pets so much. Do you ever wonder what your pets are doing when you are not at home? Unlike the unknowing pet owners in the movie, we now know exactly what Winston does when he’s alone. I picked up some video cameras that can be watched live via an app on my phone, so now we can see just what he’s doing. Winston’s life isn’t quite as exciting as that of Max, Gidget and friends from the movie. He spends most of his time sleeping.
I wasn’t fully prepared for just how funny this movie was. You know how sometimes you don’t enjoy the movie as much as your kids? That’s not the case at all with The Secret Life of Pets. I laughed a LOT! I won’t mind so much when Tati wants to watch it on Blu-ray for the 100th time.
Get ready for The Secret Life of Pets on DVD, Blu-ray and Digital HD!
About the film
In their fifth fully animated feature-film collaboration, Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures present The Secret Life of Pets, a comedy about the lives our pets lead when we leave for work or school. Max, voiced by Louis C.K., is a loyal terrier living a perfectly happy existence until his owner, Katie (Ellie Kemper) brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet) a big, boisterous mutt she finds at the shelter. When Max and his unruly new “roommate” slip away from their dog-walker, they find themselves lost in the urban jungle of New York City. In an attempt to stay ahead of animal control and a rebel band of abandoned pets led by an unhinged bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart), they put aside their differences to survive the epic journey back home.
