BAD WORDS Red Band Trailer

Can you spell potty mouth?

Jason Bateman definitely can and definitely has a one in the new red-band trailer for his directorial debut Bad Words.

Bateman stars as Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old who finds a loophole in the rules of the National Quill Spelling Bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition. Contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious eighth-graders are no match for Guy, as he ruthlessly crushes their dreams of victory and fame.

Alison Janney, Kathryn Hahn, and Phillip Baker Hall also star in the comedy, out in March 2014.

Check out the trailer below:
