Akeelah and the Bee is on TV right now. I saw this movie in theaters, as I am a big fan of spelling bees. My favorite line that I always remember is when some students are playing basketball with Akeelah, trying to get her revved up for the national spelling bee. She gets overwhelmed and says, "This is all starting to sound heavy." One of the kids, getting frustrated with her, bounce passes the ball to her and declares,
"It is heavy. Spelling bees are some serious shit."
