(2019) (voices of Patton Oswalt, Kevin Hart) (PG)
- 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.
- 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.
