Barry B. Benson (voice of Jerry Seinfeld) is your average honeybee. Despite having recently received his diploma from bee college and being virtually guaranteed a bright future in honey, Barry feels he has the skills to pursue a number of different career paths and resents the fact that his employment opportunities are strictly limited to producing the sweet nectar. Upon breaking away from the hive and developing a friendship with an insect-loving New York florist (voice of Renée Zellweger), Barry makes the shocking discovery that human beings eat honey in mass quantities. Having finally found his calling in life, the infuriated Barry decides to sue the human race for stealing all of the honey that his fellow bees work so hard to produce.~Jason Buchanan
This 2007 animated feature adventure finds a recent Bee College graduate (voiced by Jerry Seinfeld) seeking his lone career choice of making honey disrupted when he leaves the hive and is almost killed. When he is rescued by a florist in NYC he breaks the Bee code by thanking her and a friendship ensues. However when he finds out that humans use bees to produce honey for their own consumption, he decides to sue the human race. Humorous situations and disastrous consequences abound. Good fun but no classic.
Comedy legend Jerry Seinfeld takes his talents to the big screen in his love ballad to bees. The exploration of the beehive and the different roles the bees take on and the why, and the playful give-and-take between the characters make this film fully enjoyable for adults and children alike. As someone who enjoyed the Seinfeld sitcom and the glorious food that is honey, I thoroughly enjoyed it. Bee Movie gets an A+!
