    Jason Bateman makes his feature 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) attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya (Rohan Chand), who is completely unfazed by Guy's take-no-prisoners approach to life. Critics rave, Bad Words is "the funniest, smartest, most entertaining comedy in a long time!" (Pete Hammond, Movieline)

    5.0 out of 5 stars DON'T LOOK AT ME April 12, 2014
    Format:Blu-ray
    Guy (Jason Bateman) is forty years old and an underachieving genius. We discover his mother moved around a lot to escape evictions. As Jason has never finished the eighth grade, he is eligible to enter the Golden Quill spelling contest to the dismay of the kids, parents and the organization. He has an on-line sponsor reporter (Kathryn Hahn) follow him around attempting to get a story, but even she doesn't know why he is doing this.

    Guy is rude to just about everyone, especially his fellow contestants with whom he plays mind games. He makes friends with a ten year kid of Indian heritage (Rohan Chand) and indulges him in vices. The reason why he entered the contest was a bit lame, but we needed something for the film.

    This is another fun quirky unique indie. It has foul language, ethnic insults, bad sex scenes and 10 seconds of nudity...and it was all fun. Worth watching 4 1/2 stars

    5.0 out of 5 stars Sharply Funny & Extremely Well-Acted! June 8, 2014
    By Blood
    Format:Blu-ray
    If you've never heard the name Jason Bateman, then you most likely haven't seen any good comedies from the past ten years. He's more than established himself as one of the funniest dudes on the planet, and has proven that with his many wisecracking and witty characters. But his great acting isn't the only thing he showcases with his new movie "Bad Words", which also serves as his directorial debut, and an impressive one at that.

    The story centers around Guy Trilby (Bateman), a middle-aged nobody who finds a loophole in a children's spelling bee and is determined to win. Despite facing much uproar from his competitors parents, he wins his regionals, and moves on to the national competition. Meeting a hilarious Indian boy named Chaitanya along the way, we follow Guy's outrageous attempt to take the grand prize.

    Sharply funny and extremely well-acted, I couldn't get enough of this great comedy. Rated R for language and sexual content, "Bad Words" will have you laughing a considerable amount of times and will leave you with a huge smile on your face. It is now playing in select theaters and coming soon to DVD.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Watch July 21, 2014
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    I thought this movie was hilarious! I didn't go in with high expectations. I mean, really how far can you take a storyline about a 40 something year old entering a spelling bee? I was greatly surprised at the depth of the story and was laughing the entire movie. For someone that acts completely unlikable, you really start to accept the main character and realize his motives.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Darkly Hilarious and Surprisingly Heartfelt! August 9, 2014
    By Zencik
    Format:Blu-ray
    Dark Comedy fans rejoice! Jason Bateman's directorial debut is not only great, but one of the best dark comedies to be released in a long time!

    The plot revolves around Guy Trillby (Bateman) a Middle School dropout who after finding a loophole in the rules, enters himself in a school spelling bee not only to win, but also to extract revenge. While it sounds like a simple plot, there's a little more to it than the synopsis would lead you to believe. Part of what makes the plot so intriguing is not only the sheer absurdity of it, but also Guy's reasoning behind what he is doing is left a mystery and isn't revealed till later in the film.

    While Jason Bateman is a great actor, he has been type-casted as the straight man in almost everything he has starred in. That isn't the case here. In what is probably the best performance of his career, Bateman has abandoned his typical role to play the foul-mouthed, narcissistic, and psychotic lead character and does so perfectly. It's not only great to see him play this role because he does it so well, but because it shows that he isn't a one-note actor. Rohan Chand who plays a fellow spelling bee contestant who friends Guy also does a fantastic job and is one of the best child actors I've seen in a film in quite sometime.

    Now if you find vulgar humor and profanity offensive, stay away from this film! This is a comedy, but a rather dark one that's in the vein of something along the lines of Bad Santa. While the humor is very vulgar and mean spirited, the film is absolutely hilarious! It never gets quite as raunchy as one might expect, but that doesn't make it any less hilarious. Much of the humor comes from watching Guy find ways to advance through the competition at the expense of his competitors.

    4.0 out of 5 stars I Can't Believe He Just Did That.... August 9, 2014
    By Dan S
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    Oh Jason Bateman. It seems like Jason Bateman has a knack for being able to do humor in such a way that will make you blush in embarrassment. Although this isn't one of his best works, it was still worth the rental.

    Some spoilers w/ short plot synopsis ahead:

    This movie follows Jason Bateman's character, who finagles a loophole in order to be able to attend an elementary spelling bee. But it seems as though Bateman isn't doing this to spite the kids he's going up against, it seems as though he has an ulterior motive.

    Bad Words is full of crude satirical humor, as some of the things that Bateman's character does to beat other contestants are despicable, but they definitely made me chuckle. A quick word of advice for those about to watch this movie: Suspend any sense of morality you have before you watch this movie, otherwise some of the jokes may end up being offensive.

    In my opinion, this movie is more of a rental than it is a buy. Since I've watched it, I haven't had any desire to watch it again. But it will give you an enjoyable night on a day when you want to enjoy some crude jokes.
