Spelling Bee?????


Ok, tonight I decided to rent a little movie and relax and I chose Akeelah and the Bee, you know the spelling bee movie that's been out for a while and everybody was talking about. It was one of those I've always wanted to rent but you know, it just didn't sound THAT exciting, come on, a spelling bee movie????
Well, forget that, it was fabulous, now I don't want to build it up too much but it definitely is worth the rental fee. The message is great and you'll need a few tissues. It is one of those underdog movies (no, not like the DOG underdog, but like Rocky, you know, the boxer? Remember how you stood up at the end of the movie and cheered? Well, maybe you DIDN'T do that in the Rocky movie but I'm sure there is some movie out there that you did that for and you'll be cheering at the end of this one too. If you like The Rookie or Rudy or even Facing the Giants, you'll enjoy this one. Leave me a comment if you've seen it or watch it and tell me what YOU think!

Great movie...it made me cry, too. We watched it in the Spring with the boys one Friday night. Kenny even got teary-eyed!
