A spelling bee loser sets out to exact revenge by finding a loophole and attempting to win as an adult. Well a reporter attempts to discover his true motivation for entertaining a children spelling bee, Guy finds himself friending an unlikely alliance with an awkward 10-year old named Chaitanya.
So here is Jason Bateman’s directorial debut, which when I saw the trailer it looked funny. I didn’t have high hopes but I was wrong and I enjoyed BAD WORDS.
Jason Bateman character (Guy Trilby) is such a jerk and you find yourself not rooting for him but you want to see what bad thing he’ll do or say next and it kept me laughing and smiling.
Costar, Rohan Chand is such a smart, talented and sweet hearted kid and plays the Ying to Bateman’s yang. The chemistry between Bateman and Chand is funny and classic; the two work so well together.
The story is funny and well told, the humor is mostly dialog but the physical gags are small and keep you laughing. But start to finish you know what happens next. The film is shot different than most comedies I’ve have seen. It shows that Jason Bateman doesn’t just have talent in front of the camera but also behind it as well.
Funny, rude and smart, BAD WORDS is an awesome watch, with the stars chemistry and Jason Bateman’s great directorial debut. BAD WORDS doesn’t bring much new to the comedy table but is all around fun and funny. Cheers and remember life won’t suck as long as there is a good movie to watch.
