Plot summary

What is The Bad Guys movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Bad Guys" movie plot summary.

In Los Angeles, California, in a world of humans and anthropomorphic animals co-existing, the Bad Guys are a gang of notorious criminal animals led by the cool-headed Mr. Wolf (Sam Rockwell) and known for their brazen thefts while eluding the authorities. After being insulted by Governor Diane Foxington (Zazie Beetz) on-air, they attempt to steal the Golden Dolphin award from guinea pig philanthropist Professor Rupert Marmalade (Richard Ayoade) IV. During the heist, Wolf takes some free time to pickpocket various people but inadvertently helps an old woman he intended to pickpocket as well and is praised for the good deed, leading to Wolf finding himself affected by his wrongdoings and Marmalade's speech about goodness. After the gang is exposed and arrested, Wolf persuades Marmalade to reform them, planning to take advantage of the pretense to try to steal the award again. Marmalade invites the Bad Guys to his home, but his lessons prove a frustrating struggle with them seemingly unable to adapt to the concept of good behavior.
Eventually, Marmalade's idea of having them go on a rescue mission, "a heist for good", to save laboratory guinea pigs proves a fiasco from second-in-command Mr. Snake's obsession with eating guinea pigs. Foxington decides to call off the experiment but relents when Wolf confesses that he despairs being hated for his species. Foxington admits that she understands and confesses that she has hope for him. Wolf contemplates the matter and finds himself rescuing a cat from a tree, which Marmalade records and releases as a viral video. The resulting publicity turns the public image of the Bad Guys around, but Snake suspects he is losing touch with his friend.
