When it comes to R-rated comedies, I’m always wary when a movie’s entire premise revolves around being vulgar for the sake of being vulgar. And the first minute or so of the Bad Words trailer definitely seems to fall into that category, with man-child Jason Bateman – playing a man who competes in child spelling bees – just being a general dick to everybody he comes in contact with.
But then he meets this cute Indian kid, they forge an awesome relationship, and hilarity ensues. If Bad Santa taught us anything, cute kids getting corrupted by broken-down grown ups is always worth a couple of chuckles. Check it March 14th.
