In the extended scene where Guy pretends to have hit Chaitanya with his car, he squirts ketchup on the bumper of the car, as well as Chaitanya's face, to look like blood. When he picks Chaitanya up and puts him in the car a few minutes later, the bumper of the car is clean. See more »

Quotes

Guy Trilby: [to a mother who swore in the presence of Chai] Why don't you take your potty mouth, go locate your pre-teen cock-sucking son and stuff him back up that old blown-out sweat sock of a vagina and scoot off back to whatever shit-kicking town you came from!

An impeccable film that draws you in.
28 June 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Bad Words is a film that exceeded my expectations upon the first view. I found the film to be incredibly hilarious even at moments that seemed inappropriate, you really couldn't help yourself, I mean everyone loves a bit of marzipan now and then ;)

Batmeman did a fantastic job directing the film, You begin support his character (guy) because his humour is just flawless and shameless. Also includes a crude yet adorable friendship bond that you just fall in love with.

I Honestly seemed like a streamline plot that was turned into something incredibly witty thats absolutely worth your time.
