This April Universal’s DreamWorks is bringing The Bad Guys into town. An adaption of the New York Best-Selling series by Aaron Blabey, the bad guys turning good. But, will they be able to?

The Bad Guys Have Arrived

This animated comedy film follows an animal criminal crew of outlaws. Wanted by the law, they are finally caught. To avoid going to jail, they make the deal to turn into good guys. Although not planning on keeping said promise, Mr. Wolf, their leader, realizes something. That is that being good may give him what he secretly always dreams about. To be accepted. Now, when a new criminal comes to town, Mr. Wolf must convince the others that being good isn’t so bad.

As seen from the trailer, we can expect great fun from The Bad Guys. Form the antics of the group, to the hilarious attempt at being good. Like, when trying to save a cat, the “s-words” they think of are smack and savor. And, sharing means Mr. Snake eating it all and Mr. Shark then eating him. I mean, the logic makes sense but might not be the best “good guy” thing to do. It is that and more that will not only make this movie funny but with its heartfelt meaning in the end. The Big Bad Wolf has a heart of gold, an old tale in a new way.
