Rated PG, Run Time of 90 Minutes, Animated.
Starring the voices of Jerry Seinfeld and Renee Zellweger.
This particular movie has a lot to do with Jerry Seinfeld who has been at the forefront of this show since the very beginning and has infused his trademark comedic style into the production. For fans of his TV sitcom (Seinfeld), this was a glorious idea. For non-fans, it was almost enough to keep them away. Either way you look at it, the comedy in Bee Movie has some of Seinfeld's humor, but ultimately fails to capture it exactly. Once again, this is a good and bad thing depending on if you enjoyed the TV series. Overall, the comedy in the movie is very enjoyable although rarely laugh out loud funny.
The flick is ultimately enjoyable but almost seems a bit too educational at times. The Bee puns are constant and get old. From beginning to end, the show keeps a brisk pace, but fails to engage the audience completely leaving many boring moments to get more pop and popcorn.
I enjoyed the show and many youngsters will like it even more. There is enough humor and intelligent storytelling crammed into it that adults will enjoy it, but the kids will be the main audience. Unlike Shrek which seemingly seeks to entertain all, Bee Movie doesn't quite hit all demographics with a homerun.
