Directed by Chris Renaud, Yarrow Cheney. With Louis C.K., Eric Stonestreet, Kevin Hart, Lake Bell. The quiet life of a terrier named Max is upended when his owner takes in Duke, a stray whom Max instantly dislikes.
Highly entertaining first act with some great comedey, but then not quite as funny or interesting through the “search” portion of the movie. The ending was just okay and sadly all-too-predictable.
Duke’s revealed backstory didn’t seem to fit with his attitude at the beginning of the movie. Why wasn’t he sad then about the loss of his owner as he tried to fit into his new surroundings? Louis CK was brilliant casting for this.
Streamed to television in high def from Google Play as a rental for $0.99.
