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.

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

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.

If one could commence marriage with a film, Bee Movie would be my first and only husband. Toting a false picture of a children's movie, this philosophical noir picture shows viewers what it truly means to reflect. Jerry Seinfeld shows us his serious side with a large, looming darkness in his shadowy, somber voice. Taking inspiration from such films as "The Shawshank Redemption" and "Clockwork Orange", Bee Movie sets in stone, a place in film history for the next hundred years. Matthew Broderick shows viewers that his days of Ferris Bueller are long behind him. Broderick takes us on a journey with his guiding voice and poignant acting ability. A warning to the weak-of-heart or weak-of-mind, this film will throw your emotions into a laundry mat of exposure and make you think and reflect as you have never done before. I personally credit this movie to my realization that I wasn't spending enough time with my wife and children, moving me so much as to nearly end my own life. But once I finally came full circle with this film, I realized that all Barry wanted was for me to introspectively look at my own soul and body, and find the love for myself that I needed. Thank you Barry, thank you Bee Movie.

tldr; BUY THIS 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.

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!

I was excited for a new movie for my son to watch and to rotate it between the movies we watch constantly. It was a cute movie I was really liking it and then it started freezing and wouldn't play past chapter 5. I took it out and checked the disc there was two gouges in the outside edge of the DVD. I tried it in another player and same exact spot it quits playing. I am able to forward to chapter 8 and play it but what a pain and disappointment. I've never had an issue with any movies I have bought on Amazon until now.

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.
