Storyline

Lane Speer is a 16-year-old girl who spends her family vacations camping in the mountains. She takes the memories for granted until she loses her father to cancer. Only a year later, Lane is still reeling from her father's death as her mother marries a guy that Lane hardly knows - a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. To top it off, while they are on their honeymoon, they arrange to have her stay with her LDS step-aunt who takes her away to a Bible-themed girls' camp with a bunch of young LDS girls. Confronted with memories of camping with her family, she tries to find peace with her new surroundings and deal with her father's death.

More like "Once I Had a Better Taste In Movies"
13 April 2016 | by charlieliddleSee all my reviews

Once I Was a Beehive is a pretty bad movie. It is an independent film, but it still didn't really deliver. I can see how someone might enjoy it, but from a film critic's standpoint that really appreciates well made films and is bothered by filmmaking flaws, the movie isn't that good. I'll admit, I did laugh out loud a few times. There are a few pretty good jokes in the movie, but most of them fall flat. Another thing I do like is some of the emotion that is shown throughout. Other than that, the writing and acting is very weak. I found a lot of the actors to be annoying, but the best actor in the film is probably Mila Smith, who played Phoebe. There are also a lot of plot points that were predictable. If you're a young woman who is Mormon and has been to Girls Camp, then you might like the movie. Otherwise, do something valuable with your time.
