I went to see Akeelah and the Bee this afternoon. What a great movie! Akeelah was a little girl from a single parent household in South Central LA who dreamed of winning the National Spelling Bee, and who do they get to be her spelling coach?… IKE TURNER! Who KNEW Ike had such an extensive vocabulary? Her mother, Anna Mae, was totally anti-spelling bee… but as usual, Ike was able to ‘change her mind.’ Tre, Doughboy and the other boyz n the hood helped Akeelah prepare for the bee and in the end Morris Chestnut gets shot… Oh wait… I mean, Akeelah is victorious. HOORAY!
If you were able to follow this entry, you should seek help. In short, any movie with Laurence Fishburne and Angela Bassett is a winner in my book. Go see this movie!
