    • It's entirely possible – likely even – that the brains behind the 'Despicable Me' franchise didn't set out to create a 'Toy Story' clone, but that's essentially what happened with 'The Secret Life of Pets.'...

    • The animation of Universal's 'The Secret Life of Pets' is stunning and a feast for the eyes, but unfortunately, that's enough to make up for a rather pedestrian and unexceptional plot. Still, it makes...
