This for me was one of those films that I had wanted to see for some time, but only now have I actually got around to it. So I can now tick it off the list, although I enjoyed it and will be watching it again. With great animation and a vocal cast that really gel together this has everything needed to make it a hit, and it certainly was when released, as the box office returns can attest to. The problem with this is that in many ways it is similar to Toy Story in its actual main plot, but then so many films have the same basic plots these days.

As this opens, we see certain pets getting through the day whilst their owners are away, at school and working. For Max a Jack Russell so his day is about to become somewhat different, when Katie, his owner comes home with a new arrival, a rather large and shaggy dog called Duke. Over the night Max is not impressed, but it is the next day when the mayhem and adventure begin. As the two dogs run into trouble when they become separated from their walker, so they run into a fight with cats, being captured by the dog wardens, and then escaping, and being held captive by a gang of ruthless former pets, who have been dumped.

It is up to the friends of Max to come to their rescue, making new friends on the way, and forming some unlikely alliances. A tale then of friendship and teamwork, where coming together to beat the odds is the only way, this does entertain very much. We obviously know what the ending will be like, as we have all seen films like this before, but it is fun enough and full of humour that adults will enjoy themselves as much as children. I found myself getting sort of attached to some of the animals, as they reminded me of certain pets I have had over the years, or have known, which I am sure many other viewers will have done. This is fast paced and with more than enough action to keep anyone happy, and you will find yourself laughing out loud.

Well put together but very childish and lacking in depth

The visual level of detail and animation are great and overall it feels nicely executed from a technical point of view.

I was hoping for something more interesting, given the reviews, but for me this was the most boring animation I've ever seen. The target audience are children and it has nothing to offer to others: funny faces, squeaky noises, flat characters, etc. It feelt like a generic saturday morning cartoon with a big production.

I needed to get a good quality video to have a "Movie Afternoon" with my granddaughters, quickly. This was a great film and good quality, streamed from Amazon. We all enjoyed it and I get to view it again......!

Mediocre

It was ok as it goes & probably entertaining for smaller kids.
The title is misleading as yes it does all happen in a day whilst pet owners are out but isn't as you would expect, ie what pets get up to at home.

Excellent film and I'm not sure (if I'm totally honest) if this was bought for our 3 1/2 year old or for us ;-)
We've already watched this a number of times and it's a good addition to the collection. I've little fear of it becoming one of "those" films that are hated with a passion after the repeat button gets jammed by the toddler :-p

Great entertainment, good for young and old alike.

Great characters, children will love the story, a few scenes that may be a little scary for the very young but no real violence, the outcome is good and the morality is well played. Lessons learned, friendship, loyalty.

My son wanted to watch his movie, from clicking buy it now we had access to instantly watch it. Amazing how quick and how great the quality was. Least my son will be able to watch it whenever he wants to now.
