This DreamWorks animation about the bees is a lighthearted humour and fun movie. Jerry Seinfeld, who has taken a lot of pride in writing, producing, acting in, and promoting the movie, does do a very good job voicing the main character. You sometimes feel like these actors doing voices for cartoons are just phoning it in, but Seinfeld gives a surprisingly energetic performance. Bee Movie tries to entertain kids and adults yet has very little humour for the children, nevertheless a plethora of jokes for the adults?but the cutesy factor becomes a turn-off for the parents. As a matter of fact, Bee Movie could have definitely benefited from edgier material and aiming the film towards an older audience. Jerry Seinfeld has a wonderful story to tell, but the kids would definitely not be interested. Bee Movie involves a major lawsuit, celebrity cameos, hidden humor about actors, and the typical Seinfeld humour that made the comedian a household name back in the 90s. The movie does have its laughs, does indeed contain its moments, but it could have been much better if it didn't try so hard to appeal to the kids.

One of the best Feature length Cartoons in the last few years. It will inevitably be compared to the likes of ?Antz? and ?A Bug?s Life?, but in my opinion, it has a much better storyline to it. Watch out for the guest appearances, which adults may find comical. Child or Adult ? A very enjoyable movie.

ENOUGH WITH THE METAPHORS AND THE GODAMN PUNS! They made this film so bloody annoying! The animation isn't really anything we've not seen before fro Dreamworks and it's an appauling outing. The main character is just SO IRRITATING and the story is nothing original. It's an instantly forgettable film that is appropriately titled B-MOVIE....
