QUICK TAKE:
Computer-Animated Comedy: Various house pets who live in the same New York apartment building get into adventures and misadventures in the city and on a rural farm while their owners remain oblivious.
PLOT:
Max (voice of PATTON OSWALT) has settled into a comfortable New York City lifestyle, living with his perky owner, Katie (voice of ELLIE KEMPER), and having made peace with big dog Duke (voice of ERIC STONESTREET). But his life is turned upside down when Katie gets married and gives birth to a baby boy, Liam (eventually voiced by HENRY LYNCH). Max is a bundle of nerves, feeling it's his responsibility to keep the baby, then the toddler safe and out of danger.

Eventually, this family of five goes on a road trip to a rural farm in upstate New York. By now, Max has been fitted with a cone to try and get him to stop his nervous scratching. When the dangers of the new setting start to prove overwhelming, he comes under the gruff tutelage of Rooster (voice of HARRISON FORD), the farm's main herding dog who keeps the sheep and cows in line and teaches Max to stop worrying and be the dog his family needs him to be.

Back in New York, the other pets in Max's building are getting into all sorts of trouble. Gidget the poodle (voice of JENNY SLATE) has lost Max's beloved squeaky ball, which accidentally bounced out of her apartment window and into the rental unit of an elderly woman with dozens of cats. She seeks the help of the catnip-hooked Chloe (voice of LAKE BELL), who gives her a makeover as a cat. Meanwhile, Snowbell the bunny (voice of KEVIN HART) is enlisted by a neighborhood dog named Daisy (voice of TIFFANY HADDISH) to go on a mission to save a tiger from being abused by an evil circus owner named Sergei (voice of NICK KROLL).

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Very young kids and tweens will definitely have an interest, along with some teens who were 10, 11, or 12 three years ago when the original film came out.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For some action and rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
