Picking the perfect pet for the Peppers is a lot harder than it seems in this hilarious family comedy for fans of The Simpsons and Family Guy.

Meet the Peppers.
Funny runs in the family.

Annie Pepper has her heart set on adopting a Chihuahua in need. But none of the Peppers can agree on the perfect pet, and they're not above sabotage to get their way. Soon they end up with a heartbroken lovebird, the tarantula that ate San Pimiento, a prissy French kitty, and a house full of chaos! Who'll win the clash of the creatures?
