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

I don't know about you but Jason Bateman has a face I just want to punch, this movie didn't change my mind.

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.

"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. "
