Not overly bad, nor overly good. You really just watch it for the funny parts, but the rest of the movie is just kind of weird and all-over-the-place.

Beginning was hilarious, then it turned (literally and visually) dark. Why not keep things bright, especially for kids?

I KNEW IT ! My pets ARE smarter than they act around me and I'm really NOT misplacing things ! Alzheimer's my ....

I'm not a big fan of animated movies and I think over the years they have gotten more extreme to hold the audience's attention. However, Kevin Hart's depiction of the rage-filled white rabbit is very funny and one of the reasons I would watch this movie over again. Not sure I would take a younger child but possibly one over 10 years old.

Very cute movie - the white fluffy bunny actor was cast againsts type - on purpose I'm sure. Brought out the kid in me!

The great appeal lies in the excellent observations that have been made and put together of the animals depicting their individual quirky characteristics , attitudes, expressions....not sure tho how the paralysed beagle on wheels can still wag his tail!

WHAT WERE THE MAKERS OF THIS MOVIE THINKING! We are these days exposed to more than enough violence and terror in our daily lives so I would suggest that it is NOT SUITABLE for a parent I suggest watching it first before exposing your young children to it....IT IS VIOLENT to say the least. A horror movie. It suggests that it is OK to treat others this way. If I was a child I would have been having nightmares following watching this.
My husband did not enjoy it one bit and stopped watching less than a 1/2 way through.

Ok, good, fine, little slopy around the edges, but not bad.

The smitten Gidget:
So what it looks like, Max?
-Brown and white, he has short hair. Very handsome, flickering in his eyes ..
Max, disappeared. He's out there somewhere. Lost, frightened, very very handsome .. We must find and bring it home.
Come on, Max did not even know you're alive.
-I do not care. I love him. I love him with all my heart. And I'll find Max, and I do not care who will participate.
Listen, this is my opinion. Maybe there's a dog in the neighborhood that are similar Max. Begin acquainted with them, after a while you will forget him.
You know that little dog?
-He is my friend. And some say he was my boyfriend.
Nobody said that.

Who are you?
-Huh? Who are we? Who are we? We are pet waste. Discarded by our owner, and now we want revenge! It's like a club, but with violence. (alternate: Who are we? *Who* are *we*? We are the Flushed Pets. Thrown away by our owners and now we are out for revenge! It's like a club, but with biting and scratching. )
Take us with you.
-I do not think so, Pets! Yes, you smell like a pet. You choose your side, and now you regret it.

Listen, this is my opinion. Maybe there's a dog in the neighborhood that are similar Max. Begin acquainted with them, after a while you will forget him.
-We will not give up, we are dedicated, we are loyal, we are the best pets. We are a dog!
-- Cat.
-- Eagle.
-Congratulations! Today you are a dog, whether you like it or not.
