Reviews for this film from our members:
Chris Barsanti @ PopMatters
Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat @ SpiritualityandPractice.com
Excerpt: A dark comedy about the toxic speech of an angry, nasty, and self-destructive man.
Laura Clifford @ Reeling Reviews
Excerpt: seems concocted from a Sundance checklist – odd couple squared, ‘shocking’ shenanigans, quirky locations, weird sex and a children’s competition – and its cynicism and faux sentimentality flatline.
Billy Donnelly @ This Is Infamous
Susan Granger @ www.susangranger.com
Excerpt: This crude, rude dark comedy is surprisingly, subtly subversive…
Mark Hobin @ Fast Film Reviews
Excerpt: Critics often use the expression “check your brain at the door” for movies that are best enjoyed without thinking about their inherent ridiculousness. I’d like to coin the phrase, “check your morality at the door“ for Bad Words.
Dustin Jansick @ Way Too Indie
Excerpt: It’s hard to think of any good words to describe Bad Words.
Jeremy Kibler @ The Artful Critic
Excerpt: Bad Words is unapologetically rude and mean-spirited and cruelly funny, but that’s about it. Unfortunately, bad behavior does not always a good comedy make.

Pat Mullen @ Cinemablographer
Excerpt: Fuck the kids; just enjoy it!
Jamie S. Rich @ DVD Talk
Excerpt: Bad Words is written by first-time screenwriter Andrew Dodge. The scribe has a friend in Bateman, who really does the writing more favors than it probably deserves.
Francis Rizzo III @ DVDTalk.com
Excerpt: A smart, touching and darkly comic film–a gem of a directorial debut for Justin Bateman
Tom Santilli @ Examiner.com
Excerpt: It’s frustrating that absolutely nothing seemed to work.
Josh Spiegel @ Sound on Sight Frank Swietek @ One Guys Opinion
Excerpt: An engagingly off-color way to spend an hour and a half.
