(at around 29 mins) The scene with Barry B. Benson in the pool is a take off on The Graduate (1967). In both scenes the title character's parent's ask what they want to do with their lives. Both characters are unsure what the future will hold. Both are also having a secret affair. See more »
(at around 1h 14 mins) At one point all the trees and plants have withered because of a lack of pollination. But when all the bees fly out to help guide in the plane, the tree in front of the hive is sporting big green leaves. See more »

Is the Bee Movie the best animated movie we've ever seen? No. But, defying the critics, I took my 11 year old daughter (who didn't really want to go) and my 5 year old son to see the movie and we all really enjoyed it. Most importantly, the story and humor of the movie operates at multiple levels, so it appealed to all of us at our individual age level.
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.
