[Preview] Jason Bateman brings the Funny in Bad Words

Bad-Words-Jason-Bateman-1 Jason Bateman is a funny guy and he’s back for more in his upcoming movie, Bad Words. This time though, he’s the one directing. So this should be mighty good stuff.

I’ve been a fan of Jason Bateman since Arrested development. His character has always been the guy who’s picked on and that made you want to root for him while enjoying how he gets by. This time, he’s the badass doing the picking.

In Bad Words, Jason Bateman goes back to middle School to join a Spelling Bee to presumably annoy his old teachers. He surprisingly is not disqualified since he never graduated. On the way, at least from what I could tell from the trailer, he meets an Indian kid who will most likely be the one who brings him back to his senses and give him the conscience he needs.


Although this would be a funny comedy plot for a few hours of laughs, I can’t help but think that there is something else to this story. There has to be some hidden plot that will come and surprise us in the end. Regardless, I believe that Jason won’t disappoint us with Bad Words.

Bad Words comes out in March 2014.
