Reviews
Mine: A powerful and entertaining family film. Amazing that this movie made me care about spelling (which I detest as you can tell from this site). Amazing performance by Palmer. Bassett and Fishurne are excellent as always.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: A young girl from South Los Angeles tries to make it to the National Spelling Bee.
