It’s time to take yourself to the cinema and immerse yourself in the latest animated offering from Chris Renaud, creator of the Despicable Me films and Minions spin-off. Whilst The Secret Life Of Pets is perhaps not quite in their league, there is every reason to fall in love with Max the dog and his friends in this sweet, thrilling and most of all funny slice of animation.

Max and his human have a close bond, so when she brings home a ‘brother’ for the terrier – the massive, shaggy Duke – his nose is put out of joint. What follows is a series of close-calls with the dog pound and a mission with a crazy bunny rabbit.

With voices from Louis CK, Steve Coogan and Ellie Kemper, only the hardest of hearts won’t enjoy The Secret Life Of Pets.


Yalla gives it 4/5.
