"Bad Words" is a fantasticallyTrust the critics giving this movie a good review, as they obviously knew what the hell they were watching. "Bad Words" is a fantastically funny movie showing Jason Bateman at his best! Speaking of Jason Bateman, this movie also marks his first directorial debut, and might I add, what a fine way to start! "Bad Words" not only delivers on the jokes, but delivers a simple, but sweet plot as well. Most comedies lately seem to be forgetting that a movie can't just be funny by writing funny jokes into it, but by using those funny jokes around situations or experiences that we as viewers can relate to and have a good laugh about. Though I figure none of us have ever tried to enter a spelling bee as a 40-year old man, maybe there are people out there who've had similar experiences at spelling bees or can relate to Jason Bateman's characters problems growing up.
Anyway, this movie holds no bards at the amount of dirty/racist/offensive jokes thrown at you, which makes this movie even more awesome! Oh! If you're a fan of Jason's "Michael Bluth" character from the TV show Arrested Development, you'll enjoy his performance here, as I got a similar vibe from his character in this movie, though "Michael Bluth" isn't as foul-mouthed as "Guy" from this movie.
Have fun and enjoy this movie!… Expand

II seriously don't understand all the hate towards this movie. This movie, believe it or not, isn't bad, despite what all those critics say. I know, why'd trust my opinion, well look, this movie isn't the best, but it certainly isn't the worst comedy I've seen. I actually find this movie cute at times with its jokes and Jamie Kennedy comes off as the perfect person to pair with those jokes. Sorry Jamie if you find that insulting, despite it not being an insult.
Though I find a few jokes cute, a lot of you critics find the jokes raunchy and mean. I can see that at times, but frankly, it doesn't bother me, and neither should it to you. You guys got to stop being so sensitive!
Anyway, as the story and important stuff of the movie is talked enough about in the "professional" critic reviews, I recommend reading those to get the story, but by reading mine, you'll get the honest opinion. Overall, watch it. It isn't good, but it isn't bad. The story is charming and funny, the characters too. Please, just watch the movie and you'll see how wrong these critics are!… Expand
