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.Read more ›
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.
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
