Strays

Updated: Oct 3, 2023


I am a big fan of nasty, profane humor. "South Park: Bigger, Longer and Uncut" is an all-time fave.

STRAYS is profane & nasty, but it's also really boring & stupid.

What a waste of a great voice-over cast. Jamie Foxx delivers as the street smart Bug, who befriends the newly stray Reggie, voiced by Will Ferrell. Reggie thinks his owner Doug (a one-note Will Forte) is the best.

Surely Doug's just playing a game when he drives him three hours away and ditches him to find his way home!

I'm a Ferrell fan, but his full on stupid act wears thin very fast.

Twenty minutes in, I was seriously doubting I'd make the 30-minute mark.

Thankfully, Randall Park (The Interview) showed up as Hunter, a big old dog with zero bite. His asides are perfectly delivered.

Hunter, Bug, Reggie and Maggie (Isla Fisher) head out on an adventure together to help Reggie get back home and bite off a certain appendage of Doug's that Reggie is very sure he'll miss.

Most of their adventures along the way stumble along, digging up a couple chuckles.

The quartet's trip after they eat a bunch of wild mushrooms is funny, as is their escape plan after they get hauled off to the pound.

But the big laughs are too infrequent, leaving you looking for any scraps along the way.

With more F-bombs than a Scorsese gangster flick and enough dog crap to fill a kennel, STRAYS is dull & dumb. Get the biggest poop bag you can find, dump this cinematic turd inside and go watch "Team America" again. Now THAT'S a profane, dirty and clever comedy I can watch over and over.

This dog is one and done, biting off a D.

Kudos to Dennis Quaid, who's only in the movie for about 45 seconds, plays himself, and gets the biggest laughs in the whole damn thing.

Woof.
