SUMMARY: Jason Bateman Makes his feature 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 Golden Quill National Spelling Bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition. Contest officials, outrages 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. Critics rave, Bad Words "The Funniest, smartest, most entertaining comedy in a long time!" (Pete Hammond, Movieline)
