The only accepted format in a spelling bee is for a contestant to repeat their word, spell it, and announce it again. But when Guy Trilby is called in round 2 to spell Floccinaucinihilipilification, he simply spells the word and, once told he is correct, exits the podium and returns to his seat. In fact, this happens more than once in the film. See more »
This is indeed racist and it's also misogynistic. Does this mean that a movie with those qualities can't be funny? The movie knows it's racist and (wow this word is overused lately) misogynistic . It's also extremely funny. If you know you can't see past certain things like that then I suggest you don't watch this movie. It's mean and and very crude and hilarious.
I was actually ashamed that I laughed at some of the jokes as I consider myself to be a good person but they are so shamelessly delivered by Bateman I just couldn't help myself. Young Rohan Chand was very likable and held his own with Bateman who knows first hand about what it takes to be a child actor. Turn off your media forced judgment and just enjoy the movie. Even assholes can be funny.
