Pointless Nonsense

Posted in movies by Bill on July 28, 2014

badwordsBad Words stars Jason Bateman as a 40 year old asshole participating in a kids’ spelling bee. I guess your potential enjoyment of the movie relies almost entirely on whether you find it funny to see an adult be a horrible jerk to kids. Which I do, apparently. The story’s not all that exciting, and the premise is obviously contrived, but the jokes were funny, and they did a good job of casting a kid who you can believe as a national spelling bee contestant, but not find him annoying or pitiable.

    It was nice to finally see Bateman break out of his shell a bit and just let loose. Made it a whole lot more fun to watch. Good review.
