During the plane landing scene, Barry B. Benson says to target the flower and this creates a lot of confusion for Vanessa Bloome, who targets a flower on a plane and then "a fat man wearing a flower shirt": the man looks very much like John Lasseter, who notoriously wears Hawaiian shirts (with flowers).

The British version is cut by 20 seconds.
Dreamworks was required by the British Board of Film Classification to remove "a potentially dangerous and easily imitated technique involving materials that are readily available in the average household".
The "dangerous and easily imitated technique" involved the ignition of an aerosol can to form a makeshift flame-thrower - this is replaced by a shower head in the UK version.
They were not given the choice of releasing the film uncensored at a higher age rating because the film was aimed at younger viewers. See more »

"Bee Movie" has a great animation, but unfortunately is silly with an absurd storyline. I do not understand what the writer might have in his mind with such lack of message; maybe a child could have written a better and more intelligent plot. The lead character in funny but has an annoying voice. I love animations, especially those with good messages. However, is so inaccurate and stupid that even for children I believe this movie does not work well. My vote is five.
Title (Brazil): "Bee Movie A História de Uma Abelha" ("Bee Movie The Story of a Bee")
