    Kids are going to adore looking at this movie, living in it, flying through and above its brilliant landscape. It's an animated joyride over a relief map of Manhattan. I just wish the script was as good as the paint. show more

    At its relaxed best, when it's about, well, nothing, the slyly comic Bee Movie is truly beguiling. show more
