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.

Simply put; great cast, nice animation, decent story, fine performances. Bee Movie doesn't really grab you emotionally, primarily because its star Jerry Seinfeld just isn't that kind of actor. You can empathize with the plight of his character and the theme of the story but the cerebral arch of this plot misses the heart strings by just a smidgen. Both my four year old daughter and I found ourselves wandering off and doing other things while the movie played, coming back periodically to check in, never fulling engaged in the film. Full disclosure, we had just watched another animated film prior to this (Kung Fu Panda) which had lots of emotional buy-in and an action packed visual storyline. What can I say, it was a rainy day inside. Regardless, even had we started with Bee Movie I think we would have found ourselves a little disengaged by the film. All that said, again, it's a fine film and for $3 or $4 you won't be wishing you just bought a pint of honey instead, but maybee you would.

Decent movie but a lot of incorrect facts.
First the only thing a male honey bee does is mate with the queen secondly as of late wild honey bees don't live long without help from us beekeepers. Sad but true, the big thing this move does show accurately is the effect the absence of honeybees would have on the world. As a beekeeper and commercial one at that I can tell you there are lots of things against the honeybees from farms spraying insecticide to mites and viruses to weather birds and diseases. It is a full time job and a hard one to keep these girls going. All of the worker bees are non-reproducing females by the way. " the pollen jocks" as the movie calls them are girls every one.
Besides that though not a bad movie

I love this movie. It is one of those that is cute and funny for both kids and adults. Has a few hidden moments of adult humors scattered throughout the show. My son, who normally won't sit through a whole movie, even though he is 9, actually sits through the entire Bee Movie. I am a big fan of the fact that this movie not only entertains but teaches a bit of a lesson to us all for things that we take for granted. I think it is a message that even the younger kids can understand as well. I cannot say enough how great it is to have a movie that not only entertains kids and adults alike but that also teaches a message. I wish we had more like this.
