Sometimes it's more interesting to see the protagonists behave a little badly, also a little anti-heroic. It makes the characters more real, as everyone, good and bad, has a little bit of good and bad in them.
Rob Zombie's The Devil's Rejects does a good job of showing how much an audience can root for a psychopathic antagonist family from House of 1000 Corpses.
