Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - 04/28/2006
"[T]his feel-gooder revels in its hip-to-be-square hyperliteracy, and neatly exceeds its own PSA-ness..." -- Grade: B+
New York Times - 04/28/2006
"[A]n underdog story that manages to inspire without being sappy."
USA Today - 04/28/2006
"Palmer is a natural....There's nothing cynical about Akeelah's story of courage and determination."
Total Film - 08/01/2006
3 stars out of 5 -- "You'll have a lump in your throat during this heart-tugger..."
Sight and Sound - 09/01/2006
"AKEELAH AND THE BEE is most successful in the way it generates tension during the spelling-bee scenes."
