Perfectly awful
8 November 2002 | by =G=See all my reviews

"Honeybee", which tells of a woman's pursuit of a dream to become a professional boxer against her father's best efforts to keep her in law school, is a huge flop. A pathetically amateurish production, something which is evident from the first spoken words, "Honeybee" is no "Girlfight", the breakthrough debut of Michelle Rodriguez, but rather a abysmal failure on all levels of film making. Even the fight sequences involving real boxer Corinne Van Ryck are poorly staged. There's nothing here for boxing fans much less film freaks. Pass on this one. (F)

PS: This could possibly be the second worst film I've seen - second only to Chuck Norris' "Breaker-Breaker". No, check that. This one is worse.
