Bad Words

Jason Bateman ("Arrested Development") turns director for this raunchy comedy about a middle-aged loser who exploits a loophole in the national spelling bee rules to enter as an adult and exact long-simmering revenge. The story isn't particularly deep, and the main character isn't exactly lovable, but the whole thing is beautifully foul-mouthed and perfectly mean-spirited. 89 minutes R.
