Philadelphia Inquirer

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

Rolling Stone

Started OK, Then It Lost Focus And Got Really Bogus

By studmoose
The kids and I watched Bee Movie last night. We (including the whole audience) laughed only a couple of times, but that was it! I'm a total fan of animated movies. This one, though, lost its focus...

What's all the "Buzz" about?!
