Goofs

When Duke drags Max from the park by his lead we see Max being pulled through tight railings in an apartment block staircase. For Max and his lead to be pulled between the railings, Duke must have passed through first. Impossible since Duke is several times bigger than Max. See more »

Never pets were so funny and addictive
17 July 2016 | by jorge-01585See all my reviews

Hallelujah! It took so many time to see a movie that take my illusion in animated comedies back. Funny,fresh and sassy. Though I'm not a fan of comedies

A topic so easy to make a movie, but that never was made. And that's exactly what makes this movie so amazing. The simpleness that with hilarious touches that you don's see coming. The variety of animals and situations that puts them in topics and scenes easy to success is one of the best points of this movie.

One of the best comedies of the year for just been just like it is and don't create atypical situation that animated movies got us used to.And once again show us that less is more and maybe not perfect but high enough to have an amazing time.

This movie makes something that almost no one does, make me laugh almost the whole movie
