Synopsis

A parody of Reginald Rose’s Twelve Angry Men (Jurors), 12 Angry Villains follows the trial of Peter Pan who has allegedly murdered an innocent pirate named Captain Hook. A jury of twelve of the most famous villains will decide Pan's fate, if only they could stop arguing long enough to take a vote. The jury votes 11-1 that Peter Pan is guilty, but the law requires a unanimous vote by all 12 jurors to sentence the boy to adulthood. During a heated debate, new uncertainties come to light, forcing everyone to truly question if there is in fact some measure of "reasonable doubt".
