The Secret Life Of Pets

The Secret Life of Pets
Director: Chris Renaud and Yarrow Cheney
Screenwriters: Brian Lynch, Cinco Paul, Ken Daurio
Cast: Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Steve Coogan, Ellie Kemper, Bobby Moynihan, Lake Bell, Hannibal Buress, Albert Brooks
Distributor: Universal Pictures
Rated PG | 98 Minutes
Release Date: July 8th, 2016

The whole idea that there is a life that humans do not know about when they live in their residence is not exactly original storytelling. We’ve seen it in The Brave Little Toaster and three Toy Story films. While those films focused on inanimate objects, we hardly ever seen a film that centers on pets, and if you’re a pet owner like myself, you often wonder what exactly goes on when you are way – unless you have cameras to watch over them.

So like those animated films, The Secret Life of Pets explores an exaggerated version of that narrative. While Illumination entertainment tells a hilarious story that is a culmination of every story of a pet trying to get back to its master mixed with Hanna Barbara cartoon vibes, it doesn’t quite reach the emotional level of tear shedding you would see in a Pixar film. Not a huge takeaway, but the film feels more like a Tom and Jerry cartoon that goes on a bit longer than it should. Read my full review below.

It’s the holidays. Time for cheer and giving, and of course Christmas cards, and if you are a pet owner, you are bound to give one of those with your pets in it. But as Illumination’s The Secret Life Of Pet‘s special holiday trailer will show you, not all pets are too happy about dressing for the festivities.

We’ve already seen a teaser trailer earlier this year that introduced us to some of the household pets. While you may think their homes are a reflection of their personalities, that teaser proved us wrong. Now with this holiday trailer, we are getting a look at just how interested pets can be trying to pose for a holiday shot. Check out all the fun in the new trailer below.

Finale Time! Louie 5.8 “The Road: Part 2 takes Louie (Louis CK) to Oklahoma City for a week in TV land (less than a 1/2 hour in our land).

Just the small moment of his girl driver texting while driving, and Louie’s reaction was priceless. She never looked at the road. The header photo is how she was for 99% of that scene. He’s rooming with just a disgusting perv in his comedy and out. Now Louie does have the capacity to be disgusting, but seems an angel after going on after this guy.

After the scariest episode of Louie (or any show for that matter), ever, and one of the best episodes last week, what does Louie (Louis C.K.) have in store for us now that he’s decided to go on the road? Awkward road experiences of course!

Last night’s Louie was not crazy scary like last week’s when “Awful Being,” as the scariest creature on earth was called in this episode, kept popping up. It actually was my favorite episode of Louie ever, even though I’m too scared to ever watch it again.

This week’s Louie started with his classic standup at The Comedy Cellar, which is the best part of him and his show. It also set up the rest of the episode as it usually does.

Louie (Louis CK) takes Jane (Ursula Parker) to the doctor. And it is Jane who has the spotlight. The doctor doesn’t want to hear Louie’s opinions but does ask Jane, and she describes seeing electrons and feeling like she’s returning to nothing like before she was born. The doctor tells her to drink a glass of water. I love this. It really showcases his quirky daughter.

Louie
Season 5 Episode 4 “Bobby’s House”
Directed by Louis C.K.
Teleplay by Louis C.K.
Created by Louis C.K.
Starring Louis C.K., Pamela Adlon, Hadley Delany, Ursula Parker, Susan Kelechi Watson, Robert Kelly
FX
Air Date: Thursday, April 30th, 2015, 10:30pm

Last week’s Louie gave us the always welcome gift of guest star Michael Rapaport. This week we get the return of Robert Kelly. Awesome two weeks!

Definitely a couple of spoilers below!

Louie 5.4 “Bobby’s House” is a classic Louie episode, filled with awkward silence, utter humiliation, and laughter at Louie’s pain. Louie (Louis C.K.) gets a call from his brother Bobby asking if he’s going to their uncle’s wake. Louie did not know about it – with good reason. Their uncle did not die, and they ended up at the wrong funeral. They are so far in, they can’t back out of it, so they pay their respects.

Funny – Bobby goes to kneel and make the sign of the cross at the stranger’s funeral. Is it weird to find a funeral scene funny?
