Bad Words ( 2014) Movie Review; Bateman plays a cock with conviction! 8/10

I really enjoyed this, had no expectations, did not know Jason Bateman was in it, or that he was directing the film, please continue with this kind of work in the future Jason!

Bateman plays the role of his career, he seems like the number one go to guy when it comes to safe family comedies, this is not a safe family comedy, Jason plays a complete cock with grinning charm, there are few actors who have pulled it off, or should I say get the right dialogue and attitude on the same page, Billy Bob Thornton was a great cock in Bad Santa, but there is something special about the way Bateman delivers this role, he has complete conviction over his cock character, you don’t doubt  him for  a second which resulted in my case anyway, a lot of laugh out loud moments from the off which continued throughout.

Kathryn Hahn deserves a mention, with her lovable face which turns crazy without notice, she really compliments Batemans performance and they bring the best out of each other.

The story is layered very well, you have a kind of love interest, a kind of friendship, a competition and a family issue.

One of the most funny and entertaining films I have seen in a long time, I tip my cap to you Jason Bateman, you are a very funny man.

8/10

  1. Shame this was not given a big billing at the box office, they got so many things right,hopefully the people with the power will give Bateman free reign to do what he wants in the future.
