Synopsis: A spelling bee loser sets out to exact revenge by finding a loophole and attempting to win as an adult.
Release Date: March 14, 2014
Thoughts: Let it never be said that I wasn’t up for a true-blue R-Rated comedy. Like 2013’s We’re the Millers, when a funny film has the wise gusto to push the limits of the PG-13 rating into R territory I can’t help but applaud. Bad Words certainly looks like it has all the trimmings of a foul-mouthed black comedy that takes no prisoners. Star Jason Bateman (Disconnect, Identity Thief) directs fellow funny people Kathryn Hahn (The Secret Life of Walter Mitty) and Allison Janney (The Way Way Back) in his farce following a grown man using a technicality to enter spelling bees in hopes of winning big. If the final product can match the laughs put forth in this trailer Bateman may have an early 2014 hit on his hands.
