Initially, based on the The Secret Life Of Pets trailers, I was certain that I’d identify most with Chloe, but then I saw just how much of a badass the cute, fluffy Pomeranian Gidget is. I’m sure I’m not ‘reaching’ too hard here but my own name does start with a G, so you know.
Now that you agree about how much Gidget and I have in common, lets move on. I’ve seen plenty of Kevin Hart’s stand up comedy which makes me familiar with his very recognisable voice. I wasn’t sure that his voice was the best fit for a cute fluffy and gangster white rabbit. However, considering where the story goes, I see why he was chosen. I barely forgot that I was listening to Hart deliver his character’s lines but I enjoyed the story so much that it didn’t remove too much from the good time I most certainly had.
I adore the cute animals, especially Max, Gidget and Tiberius. I particularly enjoyed Louis C.K.’s voice work.
The Secret Life Of Pets is fun, funny and very, very cute. So watch it.
Finding Dory is a movie you watch because you loved the characters in Finding Nemo and want to spend more time with them.You will indeed have a good time. Nevertheless, the original will almost certainly remain number one in your heart. Reason being, if you’ve seen Finding Nemo (2003) then little about Finding Dory is going to feel fresh and new.
One of the things about Finding Dory that does feel quite new comes in the shape of Frank the octopus, a smart and fun red / orange creature. I also particularly enjoyed the ‘where’s Frank’ game at the very end. Another highlight involves a truck and the sea. It’s a beautiful, moving scene and feels reminiscent of a memorable moment in Inception (2010).
Watch Finding Dory for the nostalgia and because it’s not a bad sequel as sequels go.
