Film showing of Bad Words, Jason Bateman's directorial debut in which he also stars. Guy Trilby is 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. While reporter Jenny Widgeon attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward ten-year-old Chaitanya Chopra, who is completely unfazed by Guy's take-no-prisoners approach to life.
"The performances are funny, appealing and, in the case of Allison Janney, as a spelling bee official, wonderful." --New York Times
"In this profanely funny comedy of bad manners and hurts that won't heal, Bateman shows the same skill as a filmmaker that he does as an actor. And that's something to see." --Rolling Stone
