Editorial Reviews

From creator Jerry Seinfeld comes "Bee Movie," a comedy that will change everything you thought you knew about bees. Take a closer look at their world through the eyes of one bee in particular -- Barry B. Benson (Jerry Seinfeld). A recent college graduate, Barry wants more out of life than the inevitable career that awaits him and every other worker in New Hive City -- a job at Honex making honey. Barry jumps at the chance to venture out of the hive, and soon encounters a world beyond his wildest dreams. When Barry inadvertently meets a quirky florist named Vanessa (Renee Zellweger), he breaks one of the cardinal rules of beedom -- he talks to her. A friendship soon develops, and Barry gets a guided crash course in the ways of the human race. When he shockingly discovers that anyone can purchase honey right off the grocery store shelf, he realizes that his true calling is to stop this injustice and set the world right by suing the human race for stealing the bees' precious honey.

I've seen all of the animated features since Toy Story, and liked this one better than most. It's not as funny as Shrek, and overall not as good as Monsters Inc or Finding Nemo, but certainly in the better half, comparable to Cars, Ice Age, and Over The Hedge. During the first twenty minutes or so it seemed like it might offer nothing better than a series of Bee jokes, which I see has resulted in some negative reviews here. But the story develops as an allegory for frivolous lawsuits, but it's the bee who brings the frivolous lawsuit here, so it doesn't jump on the Hollywood blame-humans-first bandwagon, which is refreshing. Some of the results are predictable, some funny, but not preachy or trite. There's at least one lawyer joke that had the audience in stitches, along with several other funny jokes.

I didn't care that this movie came out as Jerry Seinfeld is sometimes overhyped as being funny, when in reality, most the time he isn't. I decided to rent this because a few other new releases were sold out at the video store. I get home, watch it and within minutes, am floored laughing. With a good message and superb humor, I went out today and bought this movie. I love it and if you appreciate cartoons with a good message, get this!

Jerry Seinfeld has been away from the spotlight for some time now and 2007 marks the year of his return - but only as a voice in a computer animated film. While the premise is unique, the approach is generic, and the excellently animated, poorly executed family film will have difficulty avoiding the already popular classification that Bee Movie is indeed a B-movie.

Barry B. Benson (Jerry Seinfeld) is an average bee approaching adulthood, who must decide upon a job in the hive. The catch is that once he chooses his job, he must keep it for the rest of his life. Unsatisfied with the monotony of working in the hive, he ventures outside where he meets a human woman, Vanessa (Renée Zellweger), who saves his life. Indebted, he breaks the Cardinal bee rule: never talk to humans. At first Vanessa has difficulty accepting the talking bee, but the two soon spend quite a bit of time together and Barry gets overly comfortable as she reveals that she is a florist. Enamored with Vanessa, despite the interspecies barrier, Barry learns that humans have been stealing honey from bees and selling and eating it. Infuriated, he sets out to sue the honey company, with the help of Vanessa and his bee pals.

Apparently bees drive cars, they are all cousins, and they can use their antennas as cell phones. The comical world the creators have devised for the bees is perhaps the most creative aspect of the film. Many parallels reside with Barry's rebellious teen years and human childhood, as specifically referenced by a sensationally hysterical homage to The Graduate.

Like many folks, I'm sure, I had high expectations for this movie. I enjoyed it in the theater but the buzz (bet you didn't see THAT coming, did you?) wore off soon after I pitched the popcorn container in the garbage. Jerry Seinfeld does a fair job in the unappreciated world of cartoon voiceover (just ask Nicolas Cage and/or Julia Roberts whose Ant Bully performances were horribly dull) and John Goodman is outstanding in his small but entertaining role. But the plot takes a bit long to get to the obvious point and the frighteningly real crisis in our world involving a demise in the bee population and the consequences therein is something that shouldn't be so easily remedied as it is here.
There are plenty of funny moments and the thankful change from ants to bees was quite welcome, but I expected a bit more. I am still hoping for the Incredibles sequel or at least a return to that level of output from this crowded genre.

A fun and farcical tale, this movie was enjoyable. Jerry Seinfeld plays a bee torn by angst over his looming--and supposedly permanent--job choice. This choice ultimately leads to unforeseen consequences way beyond the scope of his natural life's plan. Jerry's performance is quite funny, although a bit much for the intended younger audience. Most of the double entendres should fly over the youngsters' heads--hopefully, anyway. Renee Zellweger also turns in a cute performance.

This movie strikes one cautionary note in that even if you think you are in the right, disaster can come from upsetting the natural order of things.

What I found to be consistently annoying were the departures from reality with regard to the natural history of bees. Now, I'm not referring to the fact that insects talk in the movie. Nobody's going to be fooled by that. However, those who know little about natural science and especially small children might come away with a few misconceptions.

Those with biology degrees or even those who just enjoy natural history may "bee" irked by the flaws in bee biology. (I apologize for the pun--had to do it!) For example, all workers in the hive are female. Also, except for queens and drones, bees don't do just one job their whole lives. Workers change jobs as they mature.

However, the very heart of the movie's plot depends on these fallacies, so perhaps they can be forgiven as poetic license. Just don't think you've learned anything about the real life of bees from this movie.

This is an overall humorous movie with very little in the way of offensive material. It is pretty good family entertainment, and likely worth an hour or two of your time.

Bee Movie Cancelled on HD-DVD
I dont know, i still have a feeling they're going to release this one. I mean it is way to close to be cancelling this title when it releases in a week. I'm sure they already had all the discs prepped and ready for distribution, so why would they want to lose all that money in potential sales.... Read More
