Good films with no bad guys

Just watching Apollo 13 again and considering how there are no bad guys in it at all, no characters who are a bit of prick or whatever, and yet it’s great film.

Feels like a rare sort of thing.

Name some other great films without antagonists (if that’s the correct term)

space is the bad guy in that film, mate.

The bad guy is whichever incompetent prick fucked up whatever bit on the spaceship broke

The scene where Tom Hanks spat in the guys coffee after he gets back is a dvd extra

Threat of drowning or at least belief that someone may have drowned.

Even in kids films it is pretty rare for there to not be bad guys :confused:

Wilson’s a prick. Also, the sea. Also not a good film.

Good call although in a sense he is the bad guy and the good guy, I guess.

Wilson saved his life, while perilous he overcame the sea.

Oh no wait, Jafar returns in that…

Back to the drawing board.
