See what makes BAD WORDS such good fun in this trailer for Jason Bateman’s comedy.
Jason Bateman (“Identity Thief”) makes his feature directorial debut with the subversive comedy BAD WORDS. Mr. Bateman stars as Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old who finds a loophole in the rules of The Golden Quill national spelling bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition. Contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious 8th graders are no match for Guy, as he ruthlessly crushes their dreams of victory and fame. As a reporter (Kathryn Hahn of “We're the Millers”) attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya (Rohan Chand of Homeland), who is completely unfazed by Guy's take-no-prisoners approach to life. Also starring Allison Janney and Philip Baker Hall.
