This month’s movie is The Secret Life of Pets.
In The Secret Lives of Pets, a group of pets has a wild adventure in the city while they’re owners are at work.
Max, a terrier, is not too happy when his owner brings home a new dog, Duke. In his efforts to rid himself of his new housemate, the two dogs end up without their collars and are captured by animal control.
With the help of fellow pets and the “flushed” pets, Max and Duke become friends and find their way back home. But who cares! It’s all about Sweet Pea, the little green and yellow budgie. While Sweet Pea doesn’t have any dialogue (other than some chirps and tweets) and has only two featured scenes (at the beginning and the end of the movie), he lights up the screen – and leaves us wanting more. Cooper enjoyed this movie, and is hoping that Sweet Pea will have a spin-off. A budgie movie is long overdue!
