Trailer Preview: Bad Words (2014)
Last month, Focus Features released a red-band trailer for Jason Bateman‘s funny and foul-mouthed comedy Bad Words. The film stars Bateman as the Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old who exploits a loophole to compete in a national spelling bee competition. Guy has a larger motive than just winning, but his mean-spirited nature allows him to berate and humiliate kids along the way.
The studio has now released a green-band trailer, and here’s what’s interesting: Curse words? Not okay. Racist jokes? Totally fine. I’m a horrible human being, so those get a laugh out of me (I thought they worked in the context of the movie; Adam thought they took it too far), but I’m surprised that the MPAA thinks they’re A-OK for all audiences.
The film also stars Kathryn Hahn, Rohan Chand, Allison Janney, Ben Falcone, and Philip Baker Hall. Bad Words opens March 21st.
