I thought that the concept and trailer were interesting so I decided to give this one a shot. I also am intrigued that Jason Bateman is also sitting in the director's chair for this as well as being the lead. I have always found Spelling Bees to be interested. There isn't very many movies about the subject either. The only other one I can recall is Akeelah and the Bee. This one however is for adul... read more

Good lie, bad words and ugly truth.

I thought it was Cliff Curtis' movie because that's whom I saw in one of the posters. Anyway, it's Jason Bateman's movie, which is also his first directional venture. A refreshing theme because only a very few movies were made based on the spelling bee contest, but this one was a bit messed up story narration. Most of the narrative looked so pale and dull. It is supposed to be an exciting storytel... read more

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Jason Bateman, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though it turned out to be a decent watch, to be honest, it was anything really amazing though. First of all, I don't think I really cared about the whole concept.

“I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Jason Bateman, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, even though it turned out to be a decent watch, to be honest, it was anything really amazing though. First of all, I don't think I really cared about the whole concept. I mean, spelling bees competitions seem to be rather tedious and the idea of having a 40 year old guy joining such a competition after finding a loophole didn't make it really more entertaining, I'm afraid. Furthermore, his friendship with one of these kids was generic and the reason why he actually did all this was actually seriously predictable. Indeed, through the whole thing, he was keeping it as some kind of huge secret but it was actually fairly easy to figure it out. At lea” read more

"First viewing - July 21st Guess who made another trip to the video store? I've been wanting to see this for a while now & I'm glad to say it was worth the wait. The cast is wonderful, there are some hilarious moments, and the story is well-told and memorable. While I can't think of anything I didn't like about the film, I'm also not sure that it quite crossed the line of greatness for me. Regardless I'll be adding this to my collection at some point so I can watch it a few more times. "
