Bad Words Trailer

Jason Bateman Can Spell a Lot of Bad Words

In Jason Bateman's directorial debut, Bad Words, his character gets to have a filthy mouth — and lots of fun. As 40-year-old man-child Guy Trilby, Bateman's character joins kids in spelling bees, having found a loophole to let him compete. Guy is great at spelling, but he's terrible at interpersonal relationships — and also exceedingly crass. He turns over a new leaf when he befriends Chaitainya (Rohan Chand), a kid on the spelling bee circuit, but generally it seems as though Guy is just a bad influence on young Chaitainya.

We've seen this kind of edgy comedy before, where a bad-with-kids grown-up befriends a child, so I'm not that intrigued by that part, but the overarching plot about an adult competing in spelling bees is a pretty funny idea. Bateman still has his signature charm, and I'm curious to see how he is behind the camera too. Bad Words made its debut at the Toronto International Film Festival and will come out on March 21. You can watch the red-band trailer when you keep reading.

I'm really excited for this movie, which makes me wonder if I'm a bad person.
