I saw Bad Words on Friday night, at the Saukville Marcus Cinema. This is the story of Guy Trilby, a 40yr-old copy editor, who enters the national spelling bee. He exploits a loophole (the fact that he never graduated from the 8th grade) to get into the competition. Reporter Jenny Widgeon (played by Kathryn Hahn) follows him through the story, in an attempt to learn why he is doing what he is doing.
This was a pretty bad movie. The combination of this and the 2013 movie Identity Thief makes me question Jason Bateman’s ability to act. The only bright spot is the relationship between Guy and Chaitanya Chopra (played by Rohan Chand).
I can not even recommend watching this for free. Find something else.
