MOVIE INFO

Jason Bateman (Identity Thief) makes his feature directorial debut with the subversive comedy Bad Words.

In the movie, he stars as Guy Trilby, a 40-year-old who finds a loophole in the rules of The Golden Quill national spelling bee and decides to cause trouble by hijacking the competition.

Contest officials, outraged parents, and overly ambitious 8th graders are no match for Guy, as he ruthlessly crushes their dreams of victory and fame. Guy zealously plays to win the prize money at stake, outpacing the pre-teen field in match after match. Guy is aided and abetted in qualifying for the matches by reporter Jenny Widgeon (Kathryn Hahn of We’re the Millers), who has the exclusive rights to Guy’s story and has liaisons with her subject. Guy rudely steps up his game to embarrass and outwit the competition’s imperious chief Dr. Bowman (Philip Baker Hall of Argo) and administrator Dr. Deagan (Allison Janney of The Help), who are intent on having him eliminated from the field.

While Jenny attempts to discover his true motivation, Guy finds himself forging an unlikely alliance with a competitor: awkward 10-year-old Chaitanya Chopra (Rohan Chand of Homeland), who is completely unfazed by Guy’s take-no-prisoners approach to life. But the increasingly heated final rounds of the Quill may spell things differently for Guy’s future.

CONDITIONS TO ATTEND THIS SCREENING

The following are the conditions to RSVPing for a NAKID movie screening.

NAKID Members Only. These screening passes are ONLY available to Winter 2014 members of NAKID Social Sports - that means that you've visited www.playnakid.com and registered AND paid for a team for our Winter 2014 season.  Each person is permitted to bring one guest and that guest may be in NAKID or not (your choice).

Answer the Questions. When RSVPing, you MUST answer the three (3) questions, asking for your first & last name, your email address, and what team you're on.  If you're not seeing the three questions, please try RSVPing via a regular web browser - not a mobile web browser.

Show Up For the Movie. If you RSVP yes, you must show up for the screening.  Repeatedly RSVPing Yes for screenings and not showing up may result in you being completely removed from our Meetup group.

If you do not meet these conditions, your RSVP will be removed and you may be completely removed from our Meetup group.  Please email [masked] if you have further questions/concerns.

Also, for some of our movie screenings, the promotional company or theater may not allow electronic devices (phones, cameras, video recorders) into the theater.  If that happens, they'll have a ticket-based system for holding onto your phone and retrieving it after the movie.

HOW TO GET YOUR TICKETS

As with all of our free movie screenings, entry is NOT guaranteed and they are often overbooked to ensure the theater fills to capacity, so please arrive early to the theater.

We will provide a code the day before the screening.  You will need access to a printer to print tickets for this movie screening.  You will need to visit the Gofobo.com website, enter in the code we provide, select the number of tickets that you selected on this Meetup page, and print your ticket(s).  The Gofobo code will be provided the day before the screening.

Bring the printed ticket(s) to the theater, arriving as early as you can, hop in line and someone will point you in the right direction to see the movie.  You may not select to print more tickets than what you RSVP'd for on Meetup.  Failure to adhere to this may result in you being banned from all future NAKID movie screenings.

TIMES TO KNOW

These are the times we recommend you plan on, to help ensure entry into the movie.

6:00 PM - 6:15 PM - We strongly recommend getting to the theater between these times. Other groups also get passes, so the earlier you get to the theater, the more likely it is you will get in to see the movie. Please remember that entry is not guaranteed!

7:00 PM - Movie start time.

Entry isn't guaranteed at these screenings.  We get enough comments about this that we mention it four times.
