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).
