OH MY GOSH! This looks so hilarious! I cannot stop laughing…breathe, breathe Christy! Seriously, even if the only funny parts were in this trailer, which I am sure is not the case, this is probably the funniest thing I’ve seen in ages. No seriously. So funny! So wrong though, so wrong!

Jason Bateman 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 National Quill 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 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.

The movie also stars Alison Janney, Kathryn Hahn and Phillip Baker Hall.
