The Bad Guys
The Bad Guys, produced by Dreamworker Animation and Universal Pictures, has hit the theatres in India today after creating much fanfare with its comedy and storyline in Hollywood.
The Bad Guys is an animated movie that tells the story of a group of famous criminal animals who are eventually arrested for some big robberies. Under the instruction of their leader, Professor Marmalade, this questionable gang tries to mislead the world into thinking they are turning good. Will their plans work is the premise of the movie. The film is partially based on Aaron Blabey's novel of the same name for children.
This animated film's voice cast includes Sam Rockwell as Mr. Wolf, Awkwafina as Ms. Tarantula, Anthony Ramos as Mr. Piranha, Marc Maron as Mr. Snake, and Craig Robinson as Mr. Shark.
Recently, the actors shared their experience working on the movie and their characters in their statements. Sam Rockwell, who plays Mr. Wolf, reveals how he got involved in the film. He said he enjoyed watching great classics like Snow White Pinocchio, Bambi, and Robin Hood when he was a child. And he continues to enjoy animated films. “I am a big Ralph Bakshi fan, and I love films like Heavy Metal, Toy Story and Shrek too. Animation has always been a big deal for me. My favourite cartoons have an adult element to them, and when I read The Bad Guys I felt it had a shot at being something more than just ‘adult’,” he said.
YouTube sensation Lilly Singh too plays an important role in the movie. She plays the role of Tiffany, a very cool but also confused character who does problematic things at times. But she says people would still find her ‘charming and endearing’. “It’s hard not to listen to her or to dislike her,” she said.
According to Lilly, the film delivers an essential lesson. She added, "I guess that one of the lessons from this movie is that sometimes the most charming and graceful people we know are not always telling us the most factual things.”
The Bad Guys is now running in theatres across the country. Catch a show!
