R | | Comedy, Drama
A spelling bee loser sets out to exact revenge by finding a loophole and attempting to win as an adult.
Directorial debut of Jason Bateman.
Not everything is about winning.
Guy Trilby: I know that's true. Closure is pretty nice too.
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.
