Fantastic Movie! It really shows you how hard work really pays off!

This is a great movie about a group of kids all in the national spelling-bee. They all study extremly hard and keep working at the words that the need to memorize. It is fun, intense, and really pulls you into a day in the life of each of these smart kids.

Good message for all ages

It may be harder to understand for younger preschoolers, it is a great movie for all ages. Nupur is a great role model, telling kids not to give up. There is also a message to work hard and no matter how bad you did last time, you can always improve.

Nice movie

I liked this movie a lot. I thought that the diversity was great. IT wasn't just a whole bunch of rich kids who have a million tutors (well there were some...). I enjoyed how suspenseful it was but no one was getting a head chopped off. It was a great wholesome film. I recommend it!

Suspenseful

Spellbound is a pretty good movie. It is suspensful and can even be exciting. I give it 3 stars.

???

I'm on the fence, i've heard it's good, but why is it rated 10+ by common sense while it's G??? That makes no sense to me, but i'd still maybe want to see it

Give it a Chance.

Surprisingly engaging and captivating. The work the eight featured participants are willing to work incredibly hard, which is inspiring. It will definitely bore young kids. A mother smokes a cigarette, but no profanity or anything else.
