OVERVIEW: From the ridiculous, raunchy new comedy from the humans that brought you 21 Jump Street & Strays, STRAYS, is available to stream only on Peacock beginning October 6, 2023 and to own in an all-new Unleashed Edition with tail-riffic extras when you buy on Digital October 6, 2023 and on Blu-ray™ and DVD October 10, 2023 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.
SYNOPSIS: 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.
