If you don't point your curry hole that way, and sit your fucking ass back down in that seat, I'm gonna tell the captain that your bag is ticking.

Off-color, gutsy movie which is kind of feel good as well!
Tone, Script & Story: An adult applies for spelling competition meant for children with the intention to acquire some kind of revenge.
Hollywood has the guts to present you with the movies that are different. If one would research, they would find that it's the only place where chances of success of such movies are that high.
The movie is thin lined. Its purpose gets to us as the movie approaches end. What one enjoys till then is the friendship between characters played by Jason Bateman and Rohan Chand (child). Their chemistry keeps you engaged and entertained. The hide-n-seek kind of scene at end to decide winner is epic.
Final Verdict: It is an off-color, gutsy movie which is kind of felt well.
