#MovieMonday: Bad Words – A Refreshing Dark Comedy

Long Story Short:
Due to a loophole, a grown man is participating in the national spelling bee. While everyone else is trying to stop him and sees his appearance as a disgrace of an event that is meant for only children, he is determined to win. But why is it so important to him?
Jason Bateman’s debut as a director is a full success. Bad Words starts off very dark and sarcastic, which almost made me stop watching it, but as it continued it revealed a very original and funny side that makes it hard to stay quiet, which is also thanks to Rohan Chand, who plays Chaitanya Chopra, one of the spelling bee contestants who is desperately trying to be Guy’s (played by Jason Bateman) friend. Of course the bitterness of Guy and wittiness of Chaitanya are clashing together, and that’s what makes it so funny. Even though it easy to say how this movie might end, there are many unexpected surprises and extremely funny (but not always clean) moments.
I had a blast watching Bad Words and can only recommended it to those, who don’t mind seeing a child curse, and can take a few vagina jokes.
Bad Words is a movie that shows that you can never be too old to grow up a little more, and sometimes all it takes is an innocent child that reminds you that not everyone in this world is bad.
I know I will watch it again.
