    Cooper Raiff is officially on the scene, well on the way to whatever levels of stardom his grounded, awkward approach can vault him to. His second film relies on a lot of heart, a genuine understanding of young adult culture, and, of course, a lot of Cooper himself. The central relationship here is between him and Dakota Johnson, an actress that has seemed to carve out a nice niche for herself in the young mother role. Together they traverse the…

    be•guile- charm or enchant (someone), sometimes in a deceptive way.

    The Bad Guys is further proof that good animation and a good story is all you need... the rest of the dominoes will fall from there. Choice casting and humor will hopefully put this in contention for some animation awards.

    Fuqua confuses me, I compare everything of his to Training Day and therefore everything else is a disappointment. This one feels different than the others though somehow. The voice acting seemed way overdone, despite the excellent names in the cast, and (correct me if I’m wrong, but....) it seems like that might be the one thing you should get right in a movie that’s almost entirely voice acting. Gyllenhaal played a typical character you’d expect from him, and of course…
