(2016) What do your pets do when you're not home? When their owners leave for the day, pets from the building gossip with their friends, satisfy their sweet tooths, and throw outrageous parties. But when a pampered terrier and his unruly new 'roommate' from the pound  get lost in the urban jungle of New York City, they must put aside their differences to survive the epic journey back home. Rated PG; 87 min.
