    "Last weekend my boyfriend and I were looking for a movie to watch on date night and we stumbled across this one. The description seemed entertaining so we gave it a try, and it was the best decision we have made in a while! Akeelah and the Bee is really entertaining and inspiring, but not in the cheesy unbelievable way a lot of other movies are. Angela Bassett gives an amazing performance as Akeelah's mother. I highly recommend this for anyone looking for a feel good movie."
