After all the times you’ve seen Jason Bateman ponder the question, “Her?” as Michael Bluth, you’ll very soon get to see him in a new light, specifically as a director. Fortunately, for all you Arrested Development fans, Jason Bateman’s first foray into feature film directing, Bad Words, should be right up your alley, an R-rated comedy about a a full grown man who is out to win a national spelling bee meant for kids in middle school. It’s the type of absurd cunning we’ve come to expect from Bateman/Bluth.
Just check out this exclusive clip to see Bateman’s character bully kids in polo shirts and their pissed off accompanying parents.
