The Secret Life Of Pets
Animation, Comedy, Family, Adventure
For one bustling Manhattan apartment building, the real day starts after the folks on two legs leave for work and school. That's when the pets of every stripe, fur and feather begin their own nine-to-five routine: hanging out with each other, trading humiliating stories about their owners, or auditioning adorable looks to get better snacks. The building's top dog, Max (voiced by Louis C.K.), a quick-witted terrier rescue who's convinced he sits at the center of his owner's universe, finds his pampered life rocked when she brings home Duke (Eric Stonestreet), a sloppy, massive mess of a mongrel with zero interpersonal skills. When this reluctant canine duo finds themselves out on the mean streets of New York, they have to set aside their differences and unite against a fluffy-yet-cunning bunny named Snowball (Kevin Hart), who's building an army of Ex-Pets abandoned by their owners and out to turn the tables on humanity...all before dinnertime.

Like most modern mothers, Amy takes care of everyone but herself. Her life is perfect: a happy marriage, overachieving kids, a beautiful home, and 365 good-hair days a year. She bakes for the school bake sale and chairs every committee -- all while holding down a career. And, she makes it all look easy. But just under the surface, Amy is at her breaking point -- too over-worked, over-committed, and over-exhausted to take one more demand from anyone. Why work so hard for so little appreciation? What would happen if she did what she wanted for a change? Fed up, Amy joins forces with two other over-stressed moms, leading them on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities, going on a wild un-mom like binge of freedom, fun and self-indulgence -- accidentally landing on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her blindly devoted clique of 'perfect' moms.

And from Pete's descriptions, Elliott seems remarkably similar to the dragon from Mr. Meacham's stories.
