Barry B. Benson (Seinfeld), a bee who has just graduated from college, is disillusioned at his lone career choice: making honey. On a special trip outside the hive, Barry's life is saved by Vanessa (Zellweger), a florist in New York City. As their relationship blo ssoms, he discovers humans actually eat honey, and subsequently decides to sue us.
There aren't a lot of choices in a bee's life: a bee attends a few days of school, graduates from college, and chooses a job in the hive that he'll labour at for the rest of his life. Barry (Jerry Seinfeld) is different from his best friend Adam (Matthew Broderick) and all the other bees: he wants to see the world outside the hive and can't begin to contemplate doing the same job for his entire life. Naturally, the life of the "pollen jock" bees appeals to Barry because it's the only job that takes a bee outside the hive and into the larger human world. Once outside the hive, Barry breaks the most sacred bee law and speaks to a human named Vanessa (Renée Zellweger) in order to thank her for saving his life. A relationship quickly blossoms and leads Barry to the discovery that humans are stealing honey from the bees and selling it for their own profit. Vowing to hurt the humans the one place theyll feel it, Barry brings a legal suit against the honey industry and the courtroom drama begins. There are some hysterical moments in the film, as one would expect from a Seinfeld production, and an abundance of one-liners, double-meanings, slapstick humour, and innuendo-laden dialogue that will keep adults guffawing throughout the show. Still, the whole concept of seeing the life of a common pest through non-human eyes is getting repetitive thanks to films like Ratatouille, Flushed Away, Open Season, and Over the Hedge. It should be noted, though, that this first foray into animation by Jerry Seinfeld was four years in production due to its collaborative nature, so its theme may actually have well predated all of the aforementioned films. Children ages 5 and older will love the bees' silly antics, though many of the jokes will go right over their heads and parents should be cautioned about some mildly suggestive humour. More than just a comical film about the life of one very different honeybee, Bee Movie is a social commentary that pokes fun at human behavior while stressing the importance of doing even the most menial job well and championing the power of working together toward a common goal. There's even a lesson to be learned from the bees about controlling one's temper. --Tami Horiuchi

there is no way a bee
should be able to fly.
Its wings are too small to get
its fat little body off the ground.
The bee, of course, flies anyway
because bees don't care
what humans think is impossible.
Yellow, black. Yellow, black.
Yellow, black. Yellow, black.
Ooh, black and yellow!
Let's shake it up a little.

This animated masterpiece is quite similar to the story of Robots. I found the plot and the score music pretty much the same, but it was cool to be transported into the world of bees to see our way of life in the life of bees. The animation is first class, the camera sweeps and tracking were absolutely amazing.
The story is about a clever intuitive bee called Barry who sees the bee way of life boring and rountine. He sets upon a exploration voyage and encounters a human female (Renee) who he begins to have a crush on (sounds weird, but it's really quite sweet with a honey spin on it). Breaking the golden rule, Barry begins talking to her and they both set upon a legal battle to regain all the honey in the world with some disastrous global consequences.
This is a buzz of a family movie, funny and somewhat educational. Absolutely great fun and looks cool on the screen.
What is beyond dispute is that the visual feel of the movie is incredible. Some of the bee hive interior and flight scenes were just breathtaking. My kids were spellbound.
To me the best judge of a movie is how fast it moves along. This one kept us all entertained throughout and its 90 minute running time felt like half that. So, ignore the critics, and take your kids. They'll have a great time, and even if you're not a Seinfeld fan, so will you.
The story starts in a bee hive. Barry Benson (a bee, voiced by Seinfeld) is getting ready for his graduation ceremony. After three days at infant school, three days at junior school, and three days at high school, Barry is ready to hit the big time and get his first job. When bees choose their job, they have the same one for life. This doesn't seem to bother most bees, but Barry wants more. He's worried about having the same job for his entire life, so he slips out of the queue for jobs and decides to go exploring. He bumps into some pollen jocks who have just returned from collecting nectar and pollinating flowers. He's envious that they get to leave the hive and see the wide world - and he wants to give it a try, particularly when he sees how the female bees react to the pollen jocks.
So Barry goes on a mission with the pollen jocks, despite being told how dangerous it is. But he loves it in the wide world and goes exploring. Soon, though, he gets into trouble when it starts raining (and everyone knows bees can't fly in rain) and crash lands into a window box. Temporarily safe but very confused, he heads into the flat believing that the light hanging from the ceiling is the sun and immediately gets set upon by humans. His life is saved by a kind-hearted young woman called Vanessa (Zellweger). Barry is instantly in love.
From then, Barry thinks to hell with the rule that bees can't talk to humans, and embarks on a friendship with Vanessa.Read more ›
