Bateman sheds his put-upon guy image in ‘Bad Words’

All those years of packing his resume with "long-suffering" reasonable guys forced to do the slow burn when confronted by irrational family, bosses or identity thieves must have gotten to Jason Bateman.

He unloads that past with his directing debut, a film about an uncensored, unfiltered, eternally angry 40-year-old who is more "no burn" than slow burn. In "Bad Words" he is a "Bad Santa" on his own quixotic "Little Miss Sunshine" quest, a man with issues who refuses to explain those issues to those he insults every step of the way.
