Honeybee (2001)

How bad is it? Perhaps the worst boxing film.
Should you see it? No.

There have been so many films about boxing that it should be easy to make another by just putting together what one's learned from the past. The makers of this film learned nothing, particularly in how to shoot in the ring - the lead actress looks like she's following choreography she learned a minute earlier and the cameraman never gets a good angle. The story has a young woman who wants to box, but her father (James Avery, the only face one will recognize) wants her to go to college. Her boyfriend is also unsupportive. The promoter of women's boxing seeks contenders in strip clubs, the champ has a lesbian attraction to our heroine and finally the star's father uses his political connections to get venues shut down. Of course, she's undeterred and succeeds.
