What distinguishes this better than half-decent comedy is its detailed insight into the bee brain

Seinfeld the professional cynic has become Seinfeld the environmental crusader. Who'd have thunk it?

This curiously flat animated comedy simply doesn't have the sparkle one expects from a Jerry Seinfeld project.

Anyone smarter than a fifth grader will get a kick out the ingenuity, stellar animation, and relentless higher level humor (what, no poop jokes?) of a film that will reward multiple viewings.

Cleverly acted and beautifully rendered, "Bee Movie" is another animated triumph from the studio that brought us "Shrek."

Given the amount of talent involved - Renée Zellweger, Matthew Broderick, Rip Torn, and Seinfeld himself - it all feels like a terrible waste.

Amusing and likeable, but scarcely memorable.

The best we can award is bee minus.

What a treat to see a comedy that starts funny, is funny in the middle, and ends funny - unlike the usual Hollywood model in which all the humour is used up in the first act setting up the premise, and then winds down into sentimentality.

Sadly the animation fails to bee-dazzle - often looking a bit flat. Overall, it has to be a Bee-plus.

This DreamWorks film is not the sliced-bread marvel it has spent an enormous amount of money pretending to be. But it must be said that Seinfeld's script is a thing of wonder.

The animation is fine, the plot accessible enough for youngsters and it clocks in at a snappy hour and a half.

Events veer from the apocalyptic (the near-extinction of America's flowers) to the inexplicable (the finale is a parody of an 'Airport' movie), all presented with a glib yada-yada sense of inconsequentiality.

Bright, sunny and almost instantly forgettable, even Jerry Seinfeld can't stop Bee Movie from boldly going where far too many CGI animations have gone before.

Whatever happened to no hugs, no learning? It's enough to bring you out in hives.

Bee Movie has its moments but all in all there is very little sting in its tale.

The depth of talent in the cast and gag writing shines through, but it's only just enough to take your mind off of the flat animation.

Amusing comedy with likeable characters, colourful animation and several great gags, though the script isn't as focussed as it should have been.
