Bad Words - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Jason Bateman ("Identity Thief") makes his directorial debut with the subversive comedy "Bad Words." 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.

MOVIE REVIEW

An angry, 40-year old man uses a loophole to enter a national spelling bee contest, and the results are glorious. Bad Words, the directorial debut of Jason Bateman, is sometimes funny and always politically incorrect.
