Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (45 ):
Kids say (120 ):

The humor is there (Seinfeld is a gifted comedian, even in the form of his bee alter ego), and the story is original (although quirky). But Bee Movie's animation isn't nearly as amazing as that found in Pixar films, and only a couple of characters get major laughs. This film was Jerry Seinfeld's labor of love, and he worked hard promoting the honey out of the picture. But it falls slightly below expectations, and current watchers will find some of the humor, particularly around gender and race, a bit stale.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
