DreamWorks and Universal’s ‘The Bad Guys’ is full of comedy rides, and the film received mostly positive reviews from critics and the audience, and it is a family-friendly evergreen film, be it kid, young or old. Apart from the reviews, animated comedy-drama ‘The Bad Guys’ also performed well at the box office, and it’s pretty well for a mid-budget film.
Is The Bad Guys Hit Or Flop?
According to reports, DreamWorks and Universal’s animated comedy-drama ‘The Bad Guys’, released in the USA on 22 April 2022 in more than 4000 theaters, collected $8 million on its opening day and $23.95 million on the opening weekend. Overall, ‘The Bad Guys’ has so far collected $74.36 million domestically, $107.80 million overseas, and has a total grossed $182.16 million global against the budget of $80 million.
Despite release alongside the big films ‘The Northman’ and ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’, ‘The Bad Guys’ started with well and over projections ($10-12 million projection). The film also beats ‘The Northman’ and ‘The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent’ at the box office on opening weekend, and critics expect ‘The Bad Guys’ to end at the lifetime global box office with a $250 million box office, which is a good amount for ‘The Bad Guys’. Overall, looking at the current performance of the film, News Portals and critics considered ‘The Bad Guys’ a Hit film at the box office.
But in the past, it has been seen that the film is doing very well in the beginning. But after the opening week, there is a lot of decline in their box office, and if the same happened with ‘The Bad Guys’, then no doubt the film will change from a hit to an average film.
Talking about critical responses, then ‘The Bad Guys’ received a 6.9/10* IMDb rating, and on Rotten Tomatoes it is scored 88/100% based on 152 reviews.
