Fans of black comedy should watch Bad Words online and enjoy a story revolving a 40-year old school drop out, Guy Trilby, who stumbles upon a loophole in a spelling bee contest and decides he wants to participate. The loophole in this case is that participants are required to not have graduated 8th grade which fits Guyâ€™s case perfectly since his schooling stopped in middle school!
After participating and winning a local spelling bee contest, Guy is primed for the national stage. He manages to progress despite opposition from the organizers of the contest as well as the parents of the other participants.
While flying to attend the national spelling bee competition, Guy gets acquainted with a 10-year old rival named Chaitanya.
When Guy gets to Los Angeles where the national contest is being staged, he gets to meet one of the senior officials of the contest, Dr. Bernice Deagan. Deagan is outraged that Guy is participating and as a consequence Guy is booked into a cheesy hotel. In the course of his stay Guy finds out where Chaitanya is staying. Guy then introduces Chaitanya to debauchery which includes drinking, pilfering food and dalliances with a hooker.
During the competition, Guy uses dirty tricks to get his competitors off their game. And even when Deagan tries to fail Guy by assigning him the hardest words, Guy still manages to spell correctly. This leaves officials of the competition and parents of the participants both angry and impressed. Soon thereâ€™s a petition calling for Guy to be disqualified and for Deagan to resign.
But a little digging up of his background from someone interested in bringing him down reveals a truth that could sink or raise Guy! Who will prevail?
