Three of my monsters partied it up in Philly last night to celebrate the upcoming release of "The Secret Life of Pets" with a special advanced screening and block party at The Ritz Five. Hosted by XFinity and NBC Comcast Universal, the monsters enjoyed a huge assortment of high-end food trucks. The kids tried the pizza, fried cheese curds, cheesy tater tots cheeseburgers and Italian ices. Dad had a bit too much fun sampling all the fancy food trucks for foodies.
After their bellies were full, the monsters goofed around in a movie themed photo booth. Inside The Ritz Five Theater, they cooled off and checked out their XFinity Pets Goodie Bags which included games, pins, a Frisbee, key chains and of course, candy. The theater treated them to popcorn and drinks.
"The Secret Life of Pets" comes from animation studio Illumination Entertainment, directed by Chris Renaud of Despicable Me and Yarrow Cheney. The movie explores how your pet might react when a new pet joins the household. Having just doggy-sat a big Black and Tan hound for six weeks, with our not-so-thrilled Pug forced to put up with a very big new friend, the kids were all too familiar with that plot line. Our Pug is still recovering. The kids were giggling and laughing throughout this film. We give "The Secret Life of Pets" a four out of five monster rating! "The Secret Life of Pets" opens in theater nationwide on Friday, July 8th, 2016.
