Bad Words movie quotes provide the raunchy laughs as the film follows one 40-year-old guy who finds a loophole and enters children's spelling bees. Marking the directorial debut for Jason Bateman, the comedy film was written by Andrew Dodge. Bad Words opened in the United States on March 14, 2014.
In Bad Words, Guy Trilby (Bateman), for one reason or another, enters a children's spelling bee hell bent on revenge. See Guy, who never completed the eighth grade, found that the rules do not stipulate any age restriction, rather than contestants must not have completed grade eight. Since no rule can keep him out, he enters and wins a regional bee and earns the right to fly off and attend the Golden Quill.
Along the way, Guy trades vulgar comments with nearly everyone he encounters including a young boy Chaitainya Chopra (Rohan Chand), with whom he makes an odd friendship, young reporter Jenny Widgeon (Kathryn Hahn), who tries her best to figure out why Guy is doing all of this, and spelling bee head Dr. Bernice Deagan (Allison Janney), who urges Guy to leave the kids alone and withdraw. But despite all who are trying to doubt him, Guy pushes on as he attempts to win the Golden Quill to fulfill his dreams.Bad Words is some much-needed humor in a winter-spring 2014 movie season packed with other serious movies such as the Veronica Mars movie, Need for Speed, Mr. Peabody and Sherman, 300: Rise of an Empire, The Grand Budapest Hotel, Monuments Men, Winter's Tale, RoboCop (2014), About Last Night, Vampire Academy, The Lego Movie, Gimme Shelter, I, Frankenstein, Ride Along, The Wolf of Wall Street, Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, Her, American Hustle, 12 Years a Slave, and Frozen.
