5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous !!! Jan. 6 2007
From the first scene to the last scene of the movie i sat entranced and interested and willing to watch the movie to see what would happen next. The story is about an 11 year old girl from a run down school in Los Angeles who has a talent for spelling words and her journey to get to the National Spelling Bee contest.

At first no one believes in her, as she doesn't really believe in herself. And slowly you begin to see her confidence grow and her journey to the National Spelling Bee soon brings her whole community together. The movie is funny, inspiring, uplifting and will leave a warm glow in your heart. The actress Keke Palmer is extremely talented and you will feel her fears and excitement as she feels it.

The entire cast is extremely likeable. From Akeelah's family to her spelling mates, to her coach you will like them all. Angela Bassett and Lawrence Fishbourne who were in "What's Love Got to Do With it" do an excellent job.

The story is well written and hooks you in from start to finish. I highly recommend this movie. You could watch it with your kids or your adult friends, the message is universal.

If you only watch one movie this year, watch this one. You will be glad you did.

i don't usually cry and i almost cried.

4.0 out of 5 stars Akeelah and the Bee is a G-o-o-d Movie!, July 4 2007
By Jenny J.J.I. TOP 500 REVIEWER
I have been excited to see Akeelah and the Bee for several months now, ever since I saw the first trailer. And perhaps my review is tainted with bias, but I thought this film was great. We have wanted to see a family film touch us this way for quite some time. This is a film about connection, and proves yet again that casting is key.

I want to say that Fishburne made this movie, and I would, if it weren't for phenom Keke Palmer. Keke as Akeelah stole the limelight from seasoned veterans Laurence Fishburne and playing her mother, Angela Bassett. Bassett did a phenomenal job as well as her overworked, worrisome mother. Fishburne wowed me with his performance as a collegiate professor weighted down with a difficult past; one strikingly similar to Akeelah's path. Others pepper the screen with helpful great acting, including Friday NIGHT LIGHT's Lee Thompson Young and REVENGE OF THE NERDS Curtis Armstrong. And finally surprising performances from Akeelah's friends. The young actors did not overplay their parts like many children; they convince the audience they are just other normal kids that can spell words like djkflhsdufhis.

The film does a great job of painting a picture of the rough neighborhood without going overboard like so many movies do nowadays. It was enough to know her brother ran with a bad crowd, whereas in cliché movies, her brother might have been shot or gotten into drugs. Knowing that this little girl raised to hopes of the entire neighborhood was not unrealistic, either. Many movies have given realistic accounts of East L.A.; this does a great job of showing how bad it is, without showing us how bad it is.

Finally, the drama behind this film comes from its love, its friendship.
