I haven't watched this film yet but when I heard the name of it, it sounded interesting and unique. You want to know my favorite part about these kid movies? I love when children love the movie so much, they want to go and buy books that go along with the movie.

That is the perfect example of when film and books work together well. You see the movie first, you like it a lot, so you go buy every book about it you can. It's a great way to get kids reading too!

I have added it to my 'to watch' list. It seems cute. Besides, I do believe that they have secret lives. :)

I'd rate this book 4 out of 5 stars. It was funny and engaging. The pace was great and the music was appropriate and nicely timed with the events of the movie.

I was so excited to watch this movie, but I was actually a little disappointed by it. It would be good for children, but usually those movies are great for adults as well - I guess for me something was missing. Zootopia was amazing though - would highly recommend.

I had a rough day at work and this movie was just the pick me up I needed. I kind of felt like the creators had been in my head because I like to create animal dialogue and wonder what pets do when humans are not around.

If you haven't seen it I recommend it to all ages, even if you don't have kids.

I found the movie time, albeit a bit cookie cutter. It didn't stick out memorably in any way and was just a light, fun ish romp.

I saw the movie, and thought it was really funny. Fairly original too.
