One day Penny brings a new dog home from the pound, Duke. Max is very jealous and decides he needs to get rid of Duke, but it goes wrong and both Max and Duke find themselves lost.
Max and Duke need to find their way back home, but are being watched by the evil fluffy white bunny Snowball and his ragtag gang of escaped pets. They encounter several adventures along the way, including nearly drowning after Duke is taken by the Animal-Catcher, and the van has an accident on the way to the pound.
The animation is lovely, with detailed backgrounds and plenty of action. There is a fantastic voice cast including Louis C.K., Kevin Hart, Eric Stonestreet and Ellie Kemper, and the characters have plenty of personality. It's a very funny film and my boys loved it. They laughed out loud throughout, and we were all smiling. It really is a great family movie for Sunday afternoon smiles.
