Looming over “Bad Words” is the potential it could have had, as is, were it released ten years ago. With its focus of R-rated behavior poking at the projected innocence of children, along with the couple of chromosomes that keep Bateman’s Trilby from being a Vince Vaughn character, this movie is certainly a product of the comedies that have sculpted out the manchild story in the past decade.

Here is the synopsis for “Rush”:
Two-time Academy Award winner Ron Howard (“A Beautiful Mind,” “Frost/Nixon”) teams once again with fellow two-time Academy Award-nominated writer Peter Morgan (“Frost/Nixon,” “The Queen”) on “Rush”: a spectacular big-screen recreation of the merciless 1970s rivalry between James Hunt and Niki Lauda.
The epic action/drama stars Chris Hemsworth (“The Avengers”) as the charismatic Englishman James Hunt and Daniel Brühl (“Inglourious Basterds”) as the disciplined Austrian perfectionist Niki Lauda. Their clashes on the Grand Prix racetrack epitomized the contrast between these two extraordinary characters.
Set against the sexy and glamorous golden age of Formula 1 racing, “Rush” portrays the exhilarating true story of two of the greatest rivals the world has ever witnessed: handsome English playboy Hunt and his methodical, brilliant opponent Lauda.
Taking us into their lives on and off the track, “Rush” follows the two drivers as they push themselves to the breaking point of physical and psychological endurance. There is no shortcut to victory and no margin for error. If you make one mistake, you die.
Also starring Olivia Wilde (“TRON: Legacy”) and Alexandra Maria Lara (“The Reader”), “Rush” is produced by Andrew Eaton (“A Mighty Heart”), Ron Howard, Academy Award winner Brian Grazer (“Apollo 13,” “A Beautiful Mind”), Eric Fellner (“Senna,” “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) and Brian Oliver (“Black Swan”).
