Ascent 234 – The Secret Life of Pets

We had planned on a pool party Sunday. The prospect of thunderstorms however prompted a plan B.

It was decided we would meet at a movie theater instead and enjoy some indoors entertainment.

After a long leisurely breakfast at IHOP, Sue, Gizelle and I headed off for the theater, where our friend Mike joined us.

With some time to kill, we wandered around outside the mall for a bit, enjoying the sunshine that had decided to make an appearance.

As it came to the time for the movie to start, we made our way to the seats, picking up our 3D glasses on the way.

I love the AMC theaters, as they now have recliner seating, which is awesome to enjoy a movie from.

The Secret Life of Pets has a run time of 1 hour 30 minutes. It’s a delightful animated story of a group of pets in New York City, who get up to some wild antics when their owners leave for the day.

It focus on Max, a lovable, spoiled terrier whose world gets turned upside down when his owner brings home Duke to join the family. Max and Duke are not getting along and, while outside being walked, leave the group and get into some trouble in the alleys.

I won’t share too much as I’m not a spoiler. The story was fast-paced and entertaining. The 3D was phenomenal and some scenes had you pushing back in your chair as objects came so close to your face.

Overall, a fun & enjoyable Plan B with great friends and wonderful energy to fuel the ride back to the city.
