Horrible Bosses 2
"Horrible Bosses" was a fantastic concept. Get three strong comedians (Jason Bateman, Charlie Day, Jason Sudeikis), give them brutally bad bosses and cast them with some pretty big Hollywood names we don't often see playing these types of characters (Jennifer Aniston, Colin Farrell and Kevin Spacey—who we now know as the horrible politician from “House Of Cards,” but it had been a long time since he’d played someone so heartless and cruel).

Nymphomaniac
After reigniting his career with "Arrested Development," Jason Bateman has pivoted toward being a filmmaker. Earlier this year he dropped his foul mouthed feature directorial debut "Bad Words," and he's already set to direct "The Family Fang" starring Nicole Kidman. And another project is coming that will find him both behind and in front of the camera.

This Is Where I Leave You, Shawn Levy
Okay, we'll give credit to "This Is Where I Leave You" for the cast the film has assembled. Who could argue with Jane Fonda, Tina Fey, Jason Bateman, Rose Byrne, Adam Driver, Kathryn Hahn, Corey Stoll, Connie Britton, Ben Schwartz, Timothy Olyphant, Aaron Lazar, Debra Monk, Abigail Spencer and Dax Shepard being in the same movie together? It's just a shame its one as generic as this.

Bad Words
The past few years have seen the R-rated comedy rise in popularity with audiences, in acclaim with critics and, most importantly, in dollars at the box office. But while successes like "The Hangover" (the first one only) and "Bridesmaids" are pinnacle examples of using the adults-only rating to raunchy perfection, there are handfuls more that simply think a wacky premise and salty language are the only ingredients you need for comedy. What many of these films don't understand is that without smart context or clever delivery, the punch and power of cursing or even the salaciousness of a well-placed breast doesn't work. And while Jason Bateman's directorial debut "Bad Words" undoubtedly uses a lot of them, few add up to any genuine comedy.

Bad Words
Stubborn, obnoxious, self-centered, mean... there are more than few words that describe Guy Trilby, and a lot of them not fit to print. He's the prickly, rudely funny heart of "Bad Words," the directorial debut of Jason Bateman, who also takes the lead role. And as the title suggests, this R-rated comedy doesn't hold anything back.

Bad Words
For his directorial debut, Jason Bateman has gone R-rated with the comedy "Bad Words." It's the actor like you've never seen him before, taking his Michael Bluth persona to a very dark, dark place as he curses and spews insults all while trying to crush the dreams of a bunch of little kids. So just how raw does he get?

Bad Words
Taking the leap from actor to director can be a tricky feat, not always easily landed (check out our recent feature), but for his first time at bat, Jason Bateman stayed right in his wheelhouse, going the comedic route with "Bad Words." But just how filthy, and foul-mouthed it is might surprised you.

The Family Fang Jason Bateman David Lindsay-Abaire Nicole Kidman
Back at TIFF in September, Jason Bateman arrived to show off his directorial debut, "Bad Words." The foul-mouthed, acidic comedy wasn't one we particularly cared for, but as we noted in our review, it showed that Bateman could "could put together 90 minutes of a story tightly and cohesively." And it seems that for Nicole Kidman, that's good enough.

So, Mumford & Sons is still a thing, particularly if you're into boot-stomping, arena anthems that all sound the same. And now, it seems the band has graduated to the level where they can round up a bunch of celebs to appear in their videos, but kudos to them for nailing this star-filled concept pretty much dead on.
