Two references to The Beatles include the song "Here comes the Sun," and the Flight Controller saying "Coo-Coo-Ca-Choo," as the plane flies and settles in a bee-like fashion. See more »
Plants don't wither and die if they are not pollinated, they simply don't develop viable seeds. Although bees do contribute significantly to the pollination process, other animals do the same thing, not to mention that a simple gust of wind can cause pollination. Unpollinated plants will simply bloom again at another time, giving another chance for pollination. See more »
What happened to Seinfeld? Did someone kidnap him and replace him with a dull identical twin? Those who loved his sitcom will be sorely disappointed by Bee Movie (which is, indeed, a B-Movie). The idea is not bad bees decide to sue humans for stealing their honeybut the execution is clumsy and there are very few laugh-out-loud jokes. All the talent in the film (and there's a lot: Renee Zellweger, Oprah Winfrey, Chris Rock, Matthew Broderick, Kathy Bates, etc) doesn't change the fact that there's very little about this movie that's original, witty, or funny.
Overall, the movie was predictable and boring and, coming from a famous comedian, what could be worse than that?
