As a dog life on the streets doesn’t have to be as bad as we think… after being dumped by Doug, his second-rate owner, Reggie falls in with a loveable menagerie of strays that band together for the ultimate cross-country adventure to bite off Doug’s dick.
This is surprisingly one of the first talking animal film aimed at adults…. Strays features an all-star voice cast, some witty writing, epic toilet humour, puns and ensures the journey is filled with laughs and insanity.
The characterisations and distinct personalities of the different dog breeds tied in with idiosyncratic behaviours is masterful and only added to this film.
You can leave your brain at the door with this puppy… it’s silly humour with a few great lines with lots of fun to be had.
THE PRESS RELEASE:
They say a dog is a man’s best friend, but what if the man is a total dirtbag? In that case, it might be time for some sweet revenge, doggy style.
When Reggie (Will Ferrell), a naïve, relentlessly optimistic Border Terrier, is abandoned on the mean city streets by his lowlife owner, Doug (Will Forte; The Last Man on Earth, Nebraska), Reggie is certain that his beloved owner would never leave him on purpose.
But once Reggie falls in with a fast-talking, foul-mouthed Boston Terrier named Bug (Oscar® winner Jamie Foxx), a stray who loves his freedom and believes that owners are for suckers, Reggie finally realizes he was in a toxic relationship and begins to see Doug for the heartless sleazeball that he is.
Determined to seek revenge, Reggie, Bug and Bug’s pals—Maggie (Isla Fisher; Now You See Me, Wedding Crashers), a smart Australian Shepherd who has been sidelined by her owner’s new puppy, and Hunter (Randall Park; Always Be My Maybe, Aquaman), an anxious Great Dane who’s stressed out by his work as an emotional support animal—together hatch a plan and embark on an epic adventure to help Reggie find his way home … and make Doug pay by biting off the appendage he loves the most. (Hint: It’s not his foot).
A subversion of the dog movies we know and love, Strays, directed by Josh Greenbaum (Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar) and written by Dan Perrault (Players, American Vandal), is a hilarious, R-rated, live-action comedy about the complications of love, the importance of great friendships, and the unexpected virtues of couch humping.
