Think back to a time you failed to be good. It was nothing compared to The Bad Guys failure. Trust me when I tell you nobody has ever failed to shard at trying to be good.

DreamWorks Animation has a new action-comedy, based on the New York Times best-selling book series.

A crackerjack criminal crew is about to attempt their most challenging con—becoming model citizens.

Did I mention they are animal outlaws?

The Bad Guys Synopsis

These five friends are as infamous as The Bad Guys.

They’ve done countless heists together and are the worlds’ most-wanted villans when they are finally caught. Mr. Wolf brokers a deal (he’s not intent on keeping) to save them all from prison. The Bad Guys will go good.

The Bad Guys set out to go good and prove to the world they’ve been transformed, under their arrogant, yet adorable, guinea pig mentor, Professor Marmalade (Richard Ayoade, Paddington 2).

During their con, Mr. Wolf suspects that going good for real may give him the acceptance he’s secretly longed for when a new villain threatens the city. Will Mr. Wolf convince the rest of the gang to become…The Good Guys?
