The Bad Guys

Although never as cool as it thinks it is, 2022's animated feature The Bad Guys featuring a gang of thieves attempting to be good for a change, or at least pretending to, provides its share of laughs over its slick and fast-paced 100-minute running-time.

Sam Rockwell voices Mr. Wolf, the head of the gang who he gets into a jam and needs to get them all rubber-stamped as reformed in order to commit their biggest score. While the crew (Marc Maron, Awkwafina, Craig Robinson, and Anthony Ramos) is up for the con, Wolf has a shocking discovery he might actually want to go good for real leading to the internal conflict within the group. As a fan of heist flicks, The Bad Guys has limited appeal. Although it isn't likely a film I will return to soon (if ever), there's enough here to make it an easy recommendation.
