It seems that in comedies lately it’s good to be “bad.”
By my reckoning, this trend began with Richard Linklater’s classic “Bad News Bears,” in 1995 which was soon followed by the sequel, “The Bad News Bears In Breaking Training” and “The Bad News Bears Go To Japan.”
“Bad News Bears” was rebooted in 2005, and starred Billy Bob Thornton, though prior to that film he also was the lead in 2003’s “Bad Santa.”
Hollywood, knowing for a long time how good it feels to be bad, continued the trend with “Bad Teacher” in 2011, “Bad Milo” in 2013 and “Bad Words” in 2014.
And the latest member of this esteemed company is “Bad Johnson” which refers to exactly what you think it does.
