Jason Bateman's new comedy...
Here is a new clip from Focus Features for Jason Bateman's new R-rated comedy Bad Words. The film (which Bateman directs and stars in) also stars Rohan Chand, Kathryn Hahn, Allison Janney, Phillip Baker Hall and Rachael Harris and opens on March 14th.
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 (Hahn) attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya (Chand), who is completely unfazed by Guy's take-no-prisoners approach to life.
