Having just graduated from college, a bee by the name of Barry B. Benson 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. He is shocked to discover that the humans have been stealing and eating the bees' honey for centuries, and ultimately realizes that his true calling in life is to set the world right by suing the human race for stealing their precious honey.
Animated Comedy - As expected, "Bee Movie" is a cute, funny animated story for the
whole family. It has humor for everyone and some humor just for the
adults. The story pace is quick enough that it should retain the
attention of fairly small children most of the time. Also, adults
will not likely feel that it ever gets too silly or stupid.
PROFANITY: None SEX/NUDITY: One suggestive reference about being a bed bug. VIOLENCE: None DRUGS/ALCOHOL: None ACTION: Lots of fast paced activity and mild action throughout. COMEDY: Lots of chuckles and smiles with a few big laughs.
Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average While it has value as a passable diversion, this is ultimately yet another disappointing animated feature in an every-widening pool of them.
Roger EbertFull Review Average All of this material, written by Seinfeld and writers associated with his television series, tries hard, but never really takes off.
USA TodayFull Review Below Average Bee Movie is certainly not low-budget, but it has all the staying power and creative value of a B-movie. The secret life of bees, as told by Seinfeld, is a bore with a capital B.
