Christmas Countdown – Day 8

During our wonderful European holiday in September my parents took the big four to see The Secret Life of Pets in 3D at the movies, a great treat for them and kid-free time for us! Afterwards they were all full of praise and kept telling us how hilarious the movie was, so I was a little sad to have missed their little giggles and big belly laughs. I promised the kids we’d revisit the fun once the movie was released on DVD and this week it finally hit the shelves:

Created by the makers of Despicable Me the entertaining block-buster The Secret Life of Pets is bound to be the hit of the holiday season. This family-friendly animation movie researches the thought that has crossed every pet-owner’s mind: ‘I wonder what my pets get up to when I am not home… the answer is bound to get everyone smiling.

the-secret-life-of-pets-blu-rayLoyal terrier Max is living the life every dog dreams of: Being spoilt, pampered and waited upon by his wonderful, big-hearted owner Katie. But life as he knows it is about to change when Katie brings home a rather large surprise in the shape of a big and boisterous shelter dog named Duke. Getting used to their new shared life is turning out be quite the challenge for these two ‘brothers’.

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, they put aside their differences to survive the epic journey back home, just in time for dinner.

‘The Secret Life of Pets’ is now ready for digital download and available on Blu-ray (RRP $45) and DVD (RRP $39.95) at major retailers across Australia.
