Jason Bateman directs and stars in the upcoming comedy Bad Words, a movie about an acerbic 40-year-old who gets himself into a National Spelling Bee and proceeds to smash the dreams of countless eighth graders. But he does form an odd-couple friendship with one of his competitors, played by Rohan Chand (a.k.a. Issa on Homeland). In this exclusive clip, the two have their first meeting on an airplane. Warning: Some minor hilariously inappropriate language.

Bad Words opens in select theaters March 14th and expands it’s release on March 21st and March 28th.
