For media educator

The Secret Life of Pets is a fast-paced comedy about Max the dog, whose life is shaken when his mistress brings home a new dog, Duke. A fast-paced adventure begins with the dogs’ disagreement, where even natural enemies team up to save Max and Duke.

The vividly animated animals and their hidden thoughts from humans will make people of all ages laugh. References to action films, on the other hand, open up to teenagers and older viewers. The film also deals with feelings and situations familiar to many young viewers: irritation with a new family member, falling in love and building trust. The film has a lot of exciting scenes in the air and underwater, for example, so age flexibility should be used carefully for children under 7 years old. (Source
