Pleasant but entirely forgettable.

All of this material, written by Seinfeld and writers associated with his television series, tries hard, but never really takes off.

On the whole, this is another disappointing animated effort and it resides considerably lower on the totem pole than this year's current non-live action champion, Ratatouille.

Seinfeld, what happened? You've gone soft on us. Sure, some of it is fun but where's the sting?

[T]his comedy provides sporadic chuckles but, you'll pardon the expression, drones on for much of its running time.

It's on the easygoing level of Surf's Up, and a full tick up from, say, Over the Hedge or The Ant Bully. But given the Seinfeld pedigree it's something of a disappointment.

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

This well-meaning but comically limp offering from DreamWorks Animation inspires boredom more than anything.

Unfortunately, bees just aren't that funny.

Seinfeld has completely dumbed-down his normal clever wit in order to appeal to younger kids; they're probably the only ones who might enjoy this.

It's not worth seeing, but if all the hype has you expecting a classic, you should lower your expectations.

Jerry Seinfeld returns to the mainstream spotlight with Bee Movie, which proves as awkward and ineffective as George Costanza's attempts to wear a toupee.

Beyond its basic concept, Bee Movie hasn't the first idea where to go.

Amiable but no more.

Certainly Bee Movie could've been smarter, faster, and far cleverer, and it's disappointing to watch Seinfeld settle for less. For a man who made a mint reveling in comedic risk on a weekly basis, his first movie lacks serious sting.

Jerry Seinfeld's disappointing labor of animated-movie love is more of a lukewarm handholding experience than a full embrace.
