If you're in the mood for a rude, adult comedy, dive right into BAD WORDS! A hilarious directorial debut for its star, Jason Bateman, it's fast, crude and very funny.
Bateman stars as Guy Trilby, a man with no regard for anyone's feelings but his own and virtually no filter. For reasons only he knows, Guy finds a loophole in the rules for a national spelling bee and decides to enter as an adult.
Guy brutalizes every child contestant on his journey to the finale and every confrontation is hilarious.
Kathryn Hahn stars as a reporter writing a story on Guy's unusual quest, Philip Baker Hall and Allison Janney are terrific as the senior people running the bee and newcomer Rohan Chand is brilliant as Chaitanya Chopra, a young bee contestant who is on to Guy.
From their first encounter Chopra and Guy antagonize the living hell out of each other. As they begin to bond, the relationship is genuine and truly funny. The boy can definitely hold his own.
Bateman is very, very funny, pushing the envelope to create a character without any redeeming qualities that you grow to root for due to the single minded focus of his quest.
Get ready to laugh, cringe and then laugh a whole lot more.
As the title suggests, it's not for the easily offended, but if you like your comedies salty and hilarious and a little dark, you're going to love Bad Words.
We give it a $%#@! A.
