You Should go to Blockbuster and Rent Akeelah and the Bee!! (A)
"Akeelah and the Bee" is all about this girl, Akeelah, and how she is a really good speller. But she misses a lot of school. There are a lot of other people that are important in this movie: Akeelah’s mom, Mr. Welch (the principal), Keannah (the older sister) Dylan, Javier, Proffesor Learaby, and Georgia. Akeelah’s dad died when someone shot him, and Akeelah’s mom is trying very hard to deal with all the kids because she has kids to worry about also. Her teacher thinks she should do the school spelling bee because she gets 100% on all her spelling tests, so she thinks about it. She gets a letter that says that she has to go to summer school. The principal tells her that if she does the school spelling bee then she won’t have to go everyday to summer school. So she does the school spelling bee. Her teacher said at the beginning of the spelling bee if she wins this school spelling bee than she is going to go to the district spelling bee. Akeelah wins the school spelling bee and goes to the district spelling bee. On the way, she meets Javier and Dylan.

I liked the movie because it was not just a fun movie, it was inspiring! ut if you want to know anymore then you should go rent "Akeelah and the Bee"!


First of all, I think Akeelah is very brave and a great kid because she didn’t want to be involved in any spelling bees. But, as I said, she is very brave and she stuck to the spelling bee. Even though she wanted to quit she didn’t. Professor Learaby helps Akeelah a lot later in the movie. He helps her with spelling later in the movie because he was a really good teacher until his wife and daughter died in a car accident. Then he became very sad. Also, all he wants to do now is just stay in his backyard with a fence around it all day!!

Another thing I like about this movie is that you get all squirmy in your seat because you are so curious to see if she is going to win the district spelling bee or the regional spelling bee or even the national spelling bee! You also wonder if Dylan or Javier are going to win? What would it be like in Los Angeles where Akeelah lives? Will everything be the same!?

The thing I likes most about this movie is that it is really engaging. I felt like I was in the movie because, as I said before ,it was so engaging and such a great movie. I didn’t think about anything else except the movie! Also, you can learn different words while you are watching this movie!

So if you want to go see one of the best movies you should go rent "Akeelah and the Bee"!
