Strays: Will Ferrell and Jamie Foxx Star in R-Rated Talking Animal Movie

We’ve had talking animal movies for a while from Air Bud to Babe: Pig and the City, and while this genre is usually reserved for children, Universal Pictures is looking to shake things up with Strays.

Watch this first trailer featuring the voices of Will Ferrell and Jamie Foxx:

Here’s the official synopsis:

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).

The movie essentially brings together two genres, which are the talking animal movie, and the raunchy comedy. Though we’ve seen friends go on drunken odysseys countless times before with movies like The Hangover, Road Trip, and Pineapple Express, this could be the first time we’re seeing a bunch of talking dogs go in this quest.

Together, Reggie and friends will try drugs, hump lawn decorations, and do all kinds of things that good dogs don’t do.

Catch Strays when the movie comes to theaters on June 8.
