STAR IN THE SUMMER’S PAWSITIVELY RAUNCHY COMEDY ROMP

FROM UNIVERSAL PICTURES HOME ENTERTAINMENT
“HILARIOUS, HEARTWARMING AND OUTRAGEOUSLY FILTHY.”
– USA TODAY
Universal City, California, September 5, 2023 – Continuing its theatrical run, the ridiculous, raunchy new comedy from the humans that brought you 21 Jump Street & Cocaine Bear, STRAYS is available today, September 5, 2023 to buy or rent at home on digital platforms nationwide from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment. A subversion of the dog movies we know and love, STRAYS, 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. After a fast-talking terrier (Jamie Foxx; Ray, Dreamgirls) shows a naïve pup (Will Ferrell; Step Brothers, Elf) that his beloved owner (Will Forte; “The Last Man on Earth,” Nebraska) is a dirtbag, the dogs embark on an epic adventure for revenge.
The hilariously entertaining and full of heart STRAYS features an a-list lineup of comedic talent in-front of and behind the camera with director Josh Greenbaum (Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar) and stars Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers, Confessions of a Shopaholic), Randall Park (Marvel’s “WandaVision,” “Fresh Off the Boat”) and Brett Gelman (“Stranger Things”) alongside Will Ferrell, Jamie Foxx and Will Forte.
Plucky pup Reggie (Ferrell) thought he and his owner Doug (Forte) were playing an innocent game of fetch. It isn’t until he meets Bug (Foxx), a streetwise stray who says only suckers have owners, that Reggie realizes his miserable master intentionally abandoned him in the big city. With two more pooches (Fisher & Park) adding fuel to his furry fire, Reggie goes from cute to cunning as he and Bug concoct a crazy scheme to get back to Doug and give him a big bite between his legs. Revenge has never been this riotous, or this irreverent, as the hilariously absurd antics of these four furballs turn typical animal adventures totally upside down. Forget everything you know about “dog movie” drama because this is one journey home that’s off its leash and over the top.
