Additional Features

Special features abound on this two-disc special edition and there's something for every age. Adults will find the commentary track featuring Jerry Seinfeld and directors Simon Smith and Steven Hickner, co-writer Barry Marder, co-producer Christina Steinberg, and editor Nick Fletcher exceptionally interesting and funny; their dialogue covers movie trivia, technical challenges, descriptions of alternate and cut scenes, strange coincidences like running into and then casting Ray Liotta, and the scientific discovery of bee colony collapse during the time period of the movie's creation. Movie references to Seinfeld's favorite movie The Graduate, and Seinfeld's musings as to appropriate autobiographical titles for his fellow filmmakers are also covered. A 15-minute "Inside the Hive" featurette talks about the cast of the film and details Seinfeld's efforts to recruit "professional fun-havers" and delves into how Seinfeld's consistent presence in the recording studio aided in the creation of a palpable rapport between the actors and a unique comic sensibility. A seven-minute exploration of the technology of the film with directors Simon Smith, Steve Hickner, and DreamWorks Animation CEO Ed Leonard speaks to the importance of Halo in allowing close collaboration between Jerry Seinfeld and the filmmakers despite geographical separation and of the vital technological partnership between DreamWorks, HP, and AMD. Three lost scenes and six alternate endings appeal to viewers of every age, as does the 16-minute "TV Juniors" segment which presents comic Seinfeld "newscasts" on every subject from DreamWorks open calls for movie ideas to silly Bee Movie knock-offs, gags about recruiting animators at border crossings and street corners, and even a discussion of futuristic movie formats like can openers and electric toothbrushes. "Jerry's Flight Over Cannes" announces Bee Movie to the motion-picture world as only Seinfeld can, and "Meet Barry B. Benson" offers an abundance of bee trivia. DreamWorks Kids offerings include a seven-minute history of bees with tips about how to be a bee-friendly gardener and construct a bee box, an interactive bee trivia game, a personality quiz to determine a viewer's optimum bee employment, a pollination practice game, and an "Ow Meter" feature detailing the different kinds of bees and the relative "ow" of both their stings and of human swatters like newspapers, boots, and magazines. Finally, there's a "We Got the Bee" music video and a "DreamWorks Animation Video Jukebox" with video clips of songs from Shrek 1, 2, and 3; Flushed Away; Over the Hedge; Madagascar; and Shark Tale. --Tami Horiuchi

Product Description

"Bee Movie" is a comedy that will change everything you think you know about bees. Having just graduated from college, a bee by the name of Barry B. Benson (Jerry Seinfeld) finds himself disillusioned with the prospect of having only one career choice—honey. As he ventures outside of the hive for the first time, he breaks one of the cardinal rules of the bee world and talks to a human, a New York City florist named Vanessa (Renee Zellweger). He is shocked to discover that the humans have been stealing and eating the bee’s honey for centuries. He ultimately realizes that his true calling in life is to set the world right by suing the human race. That is until the ensuing chaos upsets the very balance of nature. It is up to Barry to prove that even a little bee can spell big changes in the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun with fresh message. November 3, 2007
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bee Movie Review November 8, 2007
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars So much better than I thought it would be March 14, 2008
Format:DVD
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars What a fun movie for the whole family!! February 18, 2008
Format:DVD
My family & I saw this movie together and what a delight it was! I was pretty sure it would be really funny because of Jerry Seinfeld and we were not disappointed. The movie was everything you want a family movie to be - it has heart, lots of laughs, some very tender, moving moments, and some underlying messages. The ending of the movie actually surprised me a little with a clever examination of our own daily lives & the meaning therein.

One of the things that I particularly loved about this movie is its compassion for non-human life. It demonstrated, brilliantly, the complex & meaningful lives that non-humans (in this case bees) live, the contributions they make, which benefit all of us, and showed how interconnected we all truly are. The movie showed a person (wonderfully voiced by Renee Zellweger) treating the bee with respect, consideration and compassion and trying to teach others to do the same. Our world needs lots more of that, so I hope that movies such as this one work to get that message across and into the 'real' world, and I'm sure that they do... :)

Overall, this movie is an interesting & thought-provoking take on the life of the bees, which in many ways, can mirror our own lives, the decisions, the struggles, the highs, the disappointments, and most of all trying to figure out who we really are inside, what we are doing here, what roles we have to play & how it affects those around us...

2.0 out of 5 stars B Movie? More like D minus May 6, 2008
Format:DVD
As much as I love Jerry Seinfeld's jokes, this movie is flat-out disappointing. It's really fun to see a bee talk to humans in "Bee Movie," but something in the interaction goes terribly wrong.

First of all, the movie tries to show a romance between a bee and a woman. It gets even weirder when the woman has a human boyfriend. Okay, maybe it's interesting to have those relations with humans, but it just seems weird to think about those things when the main characters have different physiologies.

Second, near the end of the movie, the touching ending gets way too overblown and unrealistic. Think about it--a humongous batch of flowers to save the world from a lack of food. Bees saving the airplane carrying the batch of flowers. Sorry, the bees carried it to the airport. Somehow they developed superhuman strength. I don't understand how on Earth this is supposed to happen.

Worse still, the film gets ridiculous with the court scene between the bees and the human corporations. I like Seinfeld's jokes, but are humans really going to take bees seriously? They're bees. They can be squashed by humans. In fact, they get sprayed too. And they die in court. Isn't there something completely wrong with this?

This is a confusing movie that is supposed to teach kids about the importance of globalization. Globalization. The sharing of resources among nations. Kids are really not going to understand the message of this movie. "Bee Movie" really could have been like "Ratatouille," which was a story about a rat becoming a star, even though he was a hated pest by humans. Instead, "Bee Movie" falls flat on its face with too many problems. Do kids a favor and show them "Ratatouille" instead.
