Bee Season Reviews

Christianity Today

Words and letters may hold all the secrets of the universe, but 104 minutes wasn't enough to hold and resolve all the secrets and mysteries of Bee Season.

| Original Score: 2/4

Denton Record Chronicle (TX)

Perhaps the film's disparate subplots are given due attention in the book, but it all feels unfocused and jammed together here.

A well-told, enjoyable and insightful film, but its not necessarily as revelatory as its makers seem to think.

Cinema em Cena

Os dez minutos finais de projeção parecem pertencer a um outro filme. Bem ruim, por sinal.

Something like a dream Madonna might've had while she nodded off during Spellbound...

We're knee-deep in tastefully presented balderdash.

Austin Chronicle

This is second-rate Hallström, drama plus whimsy that, when rubbed together, creates not friction and fire, but a nubbing-down of both elements.

A visual feast, but a spiritual famine.

...sneaks up on you starting as a family drama and tells that story in the guise of a religious thriller.

A tiresome piece of claptrap masquerading as family drama.

Deseret News, Salt Lake City

This aloof, often cold drama may be too cerebral for its own good, as it fails to explain some of its more mystical elements.

Duane Dudek
Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

The premise is intriguing, but the oddly toned screenplay is a mostly opaque and convoluted string of dramatically convenient yet inconsistent assumptions.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

Quad City Times (Davenport, IA)

Here's an unusual but sweet little drama about a dysfunctional family.

Family dysfunctions, spellings bees, spiritual enlightenment--Bee Season definitely has an odd lot of things going on. But this family drama somehow draws you into its weird little realm and holds you there.

Very worth 'going with' for both the things it has to say and the bold ways in which it says them.

Creative Loafing

For the sake of variety, we need more spirituality in the movies, which is why the very existence of Bee Season is a blessing even if its haphazardness makes it something of a curse.

James Sanford
Kalamazoo Gazette

fragmented, a film with several provocative ideas and a few strong scenes but no sense of fulfillment and considerably less emotional impact than it should have.

John Beifuss
Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Intriguingly, it can be viewed as a thrill-less update of a Val Lewton thriller... It asks the viewer to decide whether its characters are crazy, cursed or blessed as they encourage the incursion of the supernatural into their lives.

| Original Score: 2.5/4

McGehee and Siegel have never met a mundane event they couldn't turn into an epiphany.
