`Bee' needs more sting to be an `A'

Review B-

November 02, 2007|By Michael Sragow | Michael Sragow,Sun Movie Critic

Genuine silliness is so rare a quality these days that it shouldn't go undervalued, even in a sweet little nothing of a picture like Bee Movie. Jerry Seinfeld's foray into feature animation will delight young kids and leave their elders alternately amused and bemused.

I usually resent the way studios pack advance screenings with members of a picture's target audience, but I was thankful to see Bee Movie with a bunch of kids out on a school night. It's one film that gains in entertainment value from the audible enjoyment of the first-graders sitting around you.

Bee Movie (DreamWorks) Starring (the voices of) Jerry Seinfeld, Renee Zellweger. Directed by Simon J. Smith, Steve Hickner. Rated PG. Time 90 minutes.
