Bad Words Trailer: This Spells Trouble

Here's the red band trailer for the Jason Bateman–led dark comedy Bad Words, which Bateman also directed. He stars as a bitter jerk who apparently never finished the eighth grade — and is thus technically allowed to compete in a national spelling bee, where his inappropriate behavior offends everyone in sight. Are you in the mood for repetitive casual racism, overt cruelty toward children, and a really odd wig on Allison Janney? (Like, really odd?) Well, have we got a treat for you!
