Bee Movie bombs with critics

Tomatometer: 54%; in other words, rotten.

A surprisingly unfunny, belabored and unimaginative comedy, Bee Movie is a huge disappointment considering the extent of Seinfeld’s participation.

I was sort of clinging to the hope that things were going better than I thought, before reading these reviews, but then last night I saw Seinfeld in a McDonald’s commercial. Well, more accurately, I saw his Bee Movie character in a movie promotional commercial for McDonald’s, and it was just painful. And the first thing I thought was, “Gee, is it possible that Jerry Seinfeld needs more money?” Because I can’t think of another good reason to be doing McD’s ads if you don’t have to. But maybe that’s just me.

Anyway, I guess I should just be pleased that I can skip this one. It’s just too bad that it had to ruin my fond memories of Seinfeld being, you know, funny.
