(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 parents 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 »
The opening text is based on obsolete information. The "laws of aviation" from the early 20th century explained the flight of large objects such as airplanes and birds but failed when applied to really small objects like bees. Modern laws of aviation do explain the flight of bees. See more »
Take flight and shake off the blues with yellow!!!
I must admit, my first impression was it would be just for kids. I was pleasantly surprised just how much of a kid I still am! The Bee Movie was an adventure in honey heaven. The cheerful animation and very funny script kept me flying high to the very end! I loved this movie. It lifted my spirit and helped me to relate to my own dull working world experience. I see so much potential in this film for sequels and spin-offs. A clever script and comic timing that only Jerry Seinfeld has mastered, this film is sure to take you on a journey. It blends fantasy and reality so delicately they are both interchangeable. Seinfeld was at his best. I also have a new respect for the little buggers (bees)! I recommend this movie to anyone who feels trapped in their routine... set yourself free and see the Bees!
