Most of Speak is an uplifting portrait of friendly competition, and it's when the film embraces this narrative track, and the illumination of dream pursuit, that it really takes off.

Ultimately too superficially diffuse - and programmed to reveal a winner - to focus on one kind of human interest story.

In the beginning "Speak" too often sounds like a recruiting film for Toastmasters, but it eventually gets past that and tells some compelling stories about the finalists.
