Strays: The Incredible Journey Goes on a Foul Mouthed Road-trip

Universal

Summary via Wikipedia:

When a gullible Border Terrier named Reggie (Will Ferrell) is abandoned on the streets by his selfish and ruthless owner Doug (Will Forte), an animal-hating drug addict who never wanted him, he teams up with other strays including a street-wise Boston Terriernamed Bug (Jamie Foxx), an Australian Shepherd named Maggie (Isla Fisher), and a therapy Great Dane named Hunter (Randall Park) to get revenge on Doug.


Review:

Universal

Dog owners would love the dog humor in Strays. Every single bad canine behavior becomes a virtue in this movie. Coprophagia , butt sniffing, genital licking, vomit eating, humping, pooping, marking- anything done doggy style is fair game. it’s all funny as it’s disgusting.

Universal

Even funnier and sicker is the main plot motivation- to bite off the dick of the bad, good for nothing owner who abandoned Reggie, a Border Terrier. Read the plot summary above to find the dog breeds and Hollywood stars voicing them.

Universal

A few human vices including Afghan Hound prostitutes confound the audience beyond the obvious joke. Strays is a movie that hasn’t thought through how dogs can speak to each other in English but not understand human speech when it’s spoken to them.

Universal

Strays is a movie that pokes fun of dog movie cliches while fulfilling them. For most of its running time it’s anti pet ownership, glorifying the freedom offered by the stray mentality, until the plot demands that they find their forever family. Even strays will not bite the hand that feeds them, unless it’s a bad master- and then they go for the dick like it’s a treasured bully stick.

Universal

The whole point of Strays is love your dog for the fur babies they are, including all the shitty things they do. This is a clear the shelters movie.

Strays gets a 3.0 Ut of 5 or a B.
