I think I have this on DVD... A predictable but enjoyable movie.

A forgotten little gem. I'll replace my DVD.

A fun double feature would be Akeelah and Bad Words.

I watched this last year on DVD for the first time in years and had forgotten how much I like it. I'm glad it's releasing on blu and happily preordered at the low price. My favorite quote from the film:

Akeelah: You know that feeling where everything feels right? Where you don't have to worry about tomorrow or yesterday, where you feel safe and know you're doing the best you can? There's a word for that, it's called love

I ran a Starbucks when this was about to be released and they did some cross promotional stuff for the film. So just the name sends me into frappuchino blending flashbacks.

Starbucks produced the film (along with Mark Cuban, the owner of the Dallas Mavericks). I believe this and Arctic Tale (a nature documentary narrated by Queen Latifah) were the only films they produced.

I remember seeing this in a theatre promotion where all tickets were $1 for one day only. I saw three movies that day and this was the third (the other two where The Wild and Scary Movie 4). Sold out crowd and everyone in the theatre was into it. One of my favorite movie theatre experiences.

Another fun fact: this is one of the few films to ever get an A+ Cinemascore.
