Watch the Red Band Trailer for Jason Bateman's <i>Bad Words</i>

For his directorial debut, Jason Bateman isn’t holding anything back. In this loose-lipped comedy, Bateman plays a 40-year-old middle school dropout who somehow manages his way into a National Spelling Bee contest competing against eighth graders. Taking hints from the film’s title, the screenplay from Andrew Dodge will be sure to pull no punches as you can tell in the Red Band trailer above. The film also stars Kathryn Hahn and Allison Janney, and is expected to be released this March.
