According to awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya (Rohan Chand), not all girls have nipples. This comes as a shock to Guy Trilby (Jason Bateman), a 40-year-old spelling bee champion that has come back into the game due to a loophole in the rules. Watch as the pair connects in the foul-mouthed, feel good comedy Bad Words, in theaters March 21.
Jason Bateman makes his feature directorial debut with the subversive comedy Bad Words. Mr. 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 (Kathryn Hahn) attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya (Rohan Chand), who is completely unfazed by Guy's take-no-prisoners approach to life.
