- Comments Off on The Bad Guys
The Bad Guys is a 2022 American computer-animated heist comedy film loosely based on the children s book series of the same name by Aaron Blabey, produced by DreamWorks Animation Studios and distributed by Universal Pictures. The film was directed by Pierre Perifel (in his feature directorial debut), written by Etan Cohen, and stars the voices of Sam Rockwell, Marc Maron, Awkwafina, Craig Robinson, Anthony Ramos, Richard Ayoade, Zazie Beetz, Alex Borstein, and Lilly Singh. It tells the story of a criminal group of anthropomorphic animals who, upon being caught, pretend to attempt to reform themselves as model citizens, only for their leader to find himself genuinely drawn to changing his ways as a new villain has his own plans.
Work on the film started in 2018; the characters and themes drew inspiration from various crime films and anime series such as the Ocean s Eleven franchise, Lupin III, Pulp Fiction, and Beastars, while the inspiration for the film s animation style came from Sony Pictures Animation s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse (2018). Production began at DWA Glendale and some additional production assets were borrowed from Jellyfish Pictures, with voice acting being done remotely due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Bad Guys was released in several countries beginning March 16, 2022, and in the United States on April 22, in 2D and RealD 3D formats. It received generally positive reviews from critics for its animation, writing, and voice performances. It has grossed $247 million worldwide, making it the second highest-grossing animated film of 2022.
In Greater Los Angeles where humans and anthropomorphic animals co-exist, cool-headed pickpocket and robber Mr. Wolf leads The Bad Guys, a gang of infamous criminal animals who commit brazen thefts and evade the authorities due to the public s interpretation of them as inherently bad animals.
After being insulted by Governor Diane Foxington on live television, Wolf convinces his gang to pull off a heist to steal a valuable award called the Golden Dolphin from guinea pig philanthropist Professor Marmalade, during his inauguration at a gala. During the heist, Wolf inadvertently helps an elderly woman and is praised for the good deed, leading to Wolf becoming afflicted by his wrongdoings. After the gang is exposed and arrested as result of a failed attempted escape, Wolf persuades Marmalade with Foxington s approval to reform them, planning to take advantage of the pretense to steal the award again.
Marmalade invites the gang to his home, but they struggle with his lessons, unable to adapt to good behavior. After a heist for good to rescue a herd of guinea pigs from a research lab fails due to Wolf s second-in-command, Mr. Snake, eating them, Foxington decides to call off the experiment but relents when Wolf confesses that he despises being hated for his species; she admits she understands and has hope for him. Wolf contemplates the matter and finds himself rescuing a cat from a tree, which Marmalade records and publishes, turning the public image of the gang around. However, Snake fears that he is losing touch with his friend.
When the gang execute a new heist to steal the award again during a gala, Wolf cannot bring himself to finish the plan. Suddenly, a meteorite on display is stolen, causing the gang to be blamed for the theft. When they are arrested, Marmalade meets them in private and reveals that he stole the meteorite and had planned for the gang to take the blame (he was the old woman Wolf had helped). In prison, Wolf explains to his gang that he does not want to be a criminal anymore and that they can improve, but Snake refuses, believing that the world will never see them as anything other than monsters. Their fight is interrupted when the Crimson Paw, a notorious criminal, rescues them; revealing herself to be Foxington, who reformed when she attempted to steal the Golden Dolphin herself, and has suspected Marmalade when he pretended to be attacked by Wolf.
Upon reaching safety, the gang abandons Wolf for betraying them, but when they return to their hideout, they find it completely emptied of their loot, as Wolf revealed its location to Foxington earlier at the gala as compensation for his crimes. After Snake willingly gives the childish Mr. Shark his last possession out of kindness, the others realize that they can change their ways and proceed to help Wolf. However, Snake denies it and abandons them to ally with Marmalade, who plans to use the meteorite to power a mind-control device to hypnotize an army of guinea pigs into stealing charity funds.
Meanwhile, Wolf and Foxington break into Marmalade s home to steal the meteorite, only to be captured by Marmalade and Snake. They are rescued by the rest of the gang, then steal the meteorite and proceed to foil Marmalade s heist. They arrive at the police station to turn in the meteorite until Wolf decides to bring Snake back despite his betrayal. During the chase, Marmalade betrays Snake as an advantage and steals the meteorite back.
After rescuing Snake and destroying Marmalade s mind-control helmet, the gang surrenders to the authorities to prevent Foxington from revealing her former criminal past. Marmalade attempts to take credit for recovering the meteorite, but it is revealed to be a fake planted by Snake, who had faked his defection. He secretly switched it for a meteorite-shaped lamp and overcharged the real one inside Marmalade s basement, causing it to implode the entire manor from afar and exposing Marmalade as the thief. When the lamp meteorite falls on Marmalade, a diamond he stole from Foxington falls from his suit, which authorities recognize as having been stolen by the Crimson Paw years ago. Implicated as the Crimson Paw and revealed to be the meteorite thief, Marmalade is arrested.
One year later, the gang is released from prison in light of their good behavior, partnering up with Foxington to begin their new crime-fighting careers as the Good Guys.

On July 22, 2017, Australia s The Daily Telegraph reported that several studios had expressed interest in adapting Aaron Blabey s book series The Bad Guys into a feature film. In March 2018, DreamWorks Animation announced the development of a film based on the book series, with Etan Cohen writing the screenplay. The following year, in October, it was reported that the film would be directed by Pierre Perifel in his feature directorial debut, with Cohen and Hilary Winston set to co-write the film s script. The film was described as having a similar twist on the heist genre that Shrek did on fairy tales, and what Kung Fu Panda did for the kung fu genre . Winston was only credited for Additional screenplay material with Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs writer Yoni Brenner while the film was executive produced by Cohen, Blabey, and Foundation Media s Patrick Hughes. The cast was announced on July 28, 2021.
Animation, design, and influences
Inspiration for the design of the film came from Sony Pictures Animation s Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which opened an opportunity for DreamWorks to pitch something that was more illustrative and stylized than their other films. Character designs took inspiration from Hergé, Akira Toriyama, Uderzo, André Franquin and Moebius and a mix of styles from directors such as Luc Besson s The Fifth Element, Guy Ritchie s Sherlock Holmes, Michael Mann’s Heat, Steven Soderbergh s Ocean s Eleven, and Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs and Pulp Fiction. The film was inspired by anime and manga series such as Beastars, Sherlock Hound and Lupin III as well as the French-Belgian animated film Ernest & Celestine, due to how it influenced the approach to the characters. The crew worked remotely during the COVID-19 pandemic.
While the animation for the film was provided by DWA Glendale, Jellyfish Pictures, who previously worked with DreamWorks on The Boss Baby: Family Business, How to Train Your Dragon: Homecoming and Spirit Untamed, handled the additional asset production services using proprietary softwares like Premo and Moonray, alongside with a new tool called Doodle – created for the 2D effects and for allowing the animators to move the lines around the character rigs. The film s opening diner scene, inspired by the similar opening scene from Tarantino s Pulp Fiction, is the longest one-shot in DreamWorks Animation history – it lasts two minutes, 25 seconds and seven frames.

On the review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, 88% of 166 critics reviews are positive, with an average rating of 6.9/10. The website s consensus reads, Fast-paced, funny, and full of colorful visual appeal, The Bad Guys is good news for audiences seeking options the whole family can enjoy. Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the film a score of 64 out of 100, based on 26 critics, indicating generally favorable reviews . Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of A on an A+ to F scale, while those at PostTrak gave it an average score of 4 out of 5 stars.
The Washington Post s Kristen Page-Kirby gave 3 stars out of 4, and concluded: The moral of the story doesn t pack a huge wallop. Not that it needs to. (We can t all be Encanto.) Still, it s clever, visually interesting and very, very funny. Even when the humor goes lowbrow, it makes narrative sense. A joke about flatulence is a lot funnier when it s essential to the plot. The Bad Guys gets that. In fact, The Bad Guys gets a lot of things. It knows precisely what it is — and what it sets out to do, it does well. It s a heist film with heart and humor, and where s the crime in that? IGN s Ryan Leston gave a rating of 8 out of 10 and wrote: The Bad Guys is a slick, hilarious heist movie with buckets of laughs and a lot of heart. It s Ocean s Eleven meets Little Red Riding Hood with Sam Rockwell s Wolf going on a charm offensive to stay out of jail… and he might just win you over in the process. Richard Ayoade has a blast as the sanctimonious Professor Marmalade and the entire voice cast brings their A-game with some stellar gags that will get you roaring with laughter. The Bad Guys is a fun, family-friendly caper that s bursting with action and brimming with laughs. Chicago Sun-Times s Richard Roeper gave the film 3.5 stars out of 4, and commented that The animation combines computer-generated 2D and 3D with a look that will remind you of a Saturday-morning cartoon—only much crisper and more dazzling. There s nothing photorealistic about the animation; it s stylized and has very specific definition of Heist Movie Los Angeles, with the sky so bright it s almost overexposed, and yet somehow creating a bit of a noir vibe. This is a great-looking film with terrific performances, some lovely messaging and a steady parade of solid laughs—some the kids will enjoy and just as many targeted squarely at the grown-up kids in the audience.
The Guardian s Wendy Ide gave 3 stars out of 5 and said: Like Roger Rabbit, the pacing owes a debt to the demented frenzy of classic Looney Tunes animations, but the film also nods to heist movies, notably the Oceans series. It s deliberately preposterous – the disguises are rarely more convincing than the kind of false nose and moustache combo you might find in a cracker. But there s a kernel of believability where it matters: in the easy repartee and fully fleshed friendships. It s sharp, silly and frequently very funny.
The film was awarded the title of Truly Moving Picture Award at the 2022 Heartland Film Festival.
In April 2022, after the film was released, Perifel said that he would love to do a sequel.
