Wacky bee-havior...
8 September 2014 | by (Baltimore MD) – See all my reviews

"Bees in Paradise" is silly, goofy, inane and...oh yes...surprisingly entertaining. Its setting is Paradise Island, an all-female domain somewhere in the south Atlantic where the social structure is based on a bee hive. Males who turn up are tapped as husbands, enjoy a few months of bee-trothed pleasure, then (like drones) are bee-capitated. When pint-sized British comic Arthur Askey and his mates crash-land their aircraft on the isle, they're too bee-guiled by scores of bee-witching young girls to realize the dire fate that awaits them. With some catchy songs thrown in and an endless parade of pulchritude, bee-lieve it or not, it's a pleasure to bee-hold.
