Every dog has its day, even those with foul mouths wanderers. This R-rated comedy is as weird as it gets. It features Will Ferrell as the voice of Reggie, a Border Terrier who is devoted to his owner, Doug (Will Forte). Reggie is so blinded by loyalty and love that he can’t understand that Doug doesn’t return those feelings until he’s dumped.
Reggie soon befriends a bunch of strays including Bug (Jamie Foxx), Maggie (Isla Fisher) and Hunter (Randall Park). This bunch of jerks eventually convinces Reggie that Doug needs to be confronted about abusing him. And the revenge Reggie sets out on is … extreme to say the least.
Look wanderers on Prime Video.
