It has enough buzzing wit and eye-popping animation to win over the kids - and probably more than a few parents, too.

Kids are going to adore looking at this movie, living in it, flying through and above its brilliant landscape. It's an animated joyride over a relief map of Manhattan. I just wish the script was as good as the paint.

At its relaxed best, when it's about, well, nothing, the slyly comic Bee Movie is truly beguiling.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
The movie's not even close to Pixar standards - the animation is slapdash and the story construction's a mess - but the vibe is loose-limbed and fluky, and the gags have an extra snap that's recognizably Seinfeldian.

Unfortunately, bees just aren't that funny...Nor is the odd story Seinfeld and his collaborators dreamed up very inspired.

San Francisco Chronicle

Has a few charming moments and a scene or two with legitimate hilarity, but mostly it's just mediocre.

Bee Movie isn't a B movie, it's a Z movie, as in dizmal.
