“..While it has value as a passable diversion, this is ultimately yet another disappointing animated feature in an every-widening pool of them..”

“..truly beguiling..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]

“..the film really is very funny, and consistently funny at that..”
by David Mercier [FilmJudge]
2.5 of 4

“..mostly amusing and good-natured, occasionally hysterical, and actually manages to sneak in a subtle lesson about nature..”
by Cathy Jakicic [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel]
3 of 4

“..has enough buzzing wit and eye-popping animation to win over the kids - and probably more than a few parents, too..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]

“..an animated joyride over a relief map of Manhattan..”
by Jack Mathews [NY Daily News]

“..A surprisingly unfunny, belabored and unimaginative comedy, Bee Movie is a huge disappointment considering the extent of Seinfeld's participation..”
by Rene Rodriguez [Miami Herald]
2 of 4

“..a picture that doesn't know what to do with the vast audience its hype guarantees – children will find it opaque, adults will find it childish..”

LATEST REVIEWS

JAMES WHITE :

“..thanks to a strong visual eye and a terrific cast, this anguished, but intimate coming of age tale tends to (mostly) recompense for some of the darker and more despondent elements that will test some resolves..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

THE BRONZE :

“..simply by not getting the balance right, "The Bronze" seems to be lucky to have medaled at all..”
by Drew McWeeny [HitFix]

A LITTLE GAME :

“..a serviceable family film that is hardly a worthy rival for "Searching for Bobby Fischer"..”
by Ben Kenigsberg [NY Times]

MORTDECAI :

“..though the books are brilliant, Depp's attempt to make his own Terry-Thomas movie feels tired and more than a little tortured..”
by Ali Plumb [Empire Online]

THE BOY NEXT DOOR :

“..it's not much fun at all, but at least it's over..”
by Moira MacDonald [Seattle Times]

STRANGE MAGIC :

“..the new animated musical fairy tale from the mind and the mixtape of George Lucas, is indeed strange. What's missing is the magic..”
by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times]

CAKE :

“..Patrick Tobin's infuriatingly coy script... turning the film into a morbid guessing game..”
by Joshua Rothkopf [Time Out New York]

MOMMY :

“..the same elements that have endeared or alienated viewers of Dolan's previous films are all here in Mommy..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]

BLACK SEA :

“..Scoot McNairy is a terrifically spineless, whining mouthpiece for the adventurer who financed the journey, and Ben Mendelsohn is a terrifying underwater psycho. The whole thing adds up to a watery grave of claustrophobia-but that can be pretty terrifying..”
by Rex Reed [New York Observer]

SONG ONE :

“..Song One has its heart in the right place (on its sleeve)-it's just in desperate need of a few strong hooks..”
by David Ehrlich [Time Out New York]
