  • Critic Reviews
    "Jason Bateman stars in and directs this exuberantly foul-mouthed and mean-spirited comedy, an often uproarious model of sharp scripting and spirited acting."
    Variety

    "Bateman deserves props for sustaining BAD WORDS as a little balancing act between sulfurously funny hatred and humanity." -- Grade: A-
    Entertainment Weekly

    3.5 stars out of 4 -- "BAD WORDS, starring Jason Bateman in a tour de force of comic wickedness, takes sinful pleasure in rubbing our noses in the toxic joys of revenge."
    Rolling Stone

    "For a guy who often plays nice, Jason Bateman sure knows how to wrap his lips around invective."
    New York Times

    "Tabling any traces of everyman politeness, Bateman seems liberated by the opportunity to be truly mean."
    A.V. Club

    "Batemans feature directorial debut is a crafty story with some unpredictable turns."
    Washington Post
