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

The Baltimore Sun

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.
