The Bad Guys directed by Pierre Perifel
After years of being in the animation departments of high-profile animated films such as Kung Fu Panda, Monsters vs. Aliens, and Rise of the Guardians, director Pierre Perifel makes a strong full-length animated film with the book-to-screen adaptation of The Bad Guys.
Here is the official synopsis:
Nobody has ever failed so hard at trying to be good as The Bad Guys.
In the new action-comedy from DreamWorks Animation, based on the New York Times best-selling book series, a crackerjack criminal crew of animal outlaws are about to attempt their most challenging con yet—becoming model citizens.
Never have there been five friends as infamous as The Bad Guys—dashing pickpocket Mr. Wolf (Sam Rockwell), seen-it-all safecracker Mr. Snake (Marc Maron), chill master-of-disguise Mr. Shark (Craig Robinson), short-fused “muscle” Mr. Piranha (Anthony Ramos), and sharp-tongued expert hacker Ms. Tarantula (Awkwafina), aka “Webs.”

But when, after years of countless heists and being the world’s most-wanted villains, the gang is finally caught, Mr. Wolf brokers a deal (that he has no intention of keeping) to save them all from prison: The Bad Guys will go good.
Under the tutelage of their mentor Professor Marmalade (Richard Ayoade), an arrogant (but adorable) guinea pig. The Bad Guys set out to fool the world that they’ve been transformed. Along the way, though, Mr. Wolf begins to suspect that doing good for real may give him what he’s always secretly longed for: acceptance. So when a new villain threatens the city, can Mr. Wolf persuade the rest of the gang to become…The Good Guys?
The film co-stars Zazie Beetz, Lilly Singh, and Alex Borstein.
The Bad Guys is in theaters on April 22.
