Sometimes the end justifies the mean in the red band trailer for Bad Words, which serves as the directorial debut of star Jason Bateman. The actor-director plays a 40-year-old man named Gus Trilby, who exploits a little-known loophole to compete in The Golden Quill National Spelling Bee. Gus joins forces with a nerdy 10-year-old (Rohan Chand), while a journalist (Kathryn Hahn) tries to uncover why he is going through all this trouble to begin with. Check out this age-restricted trailer full of R-rated language for the upcoming comedy, which co-stars Allison Janney, Ben Falcone, Rachael Harris and Philip Baker Hall.
