Barry B. Benson, a bee just graduated from college, is disillusioned at his lone career choice: making honey. On a special trip outside the hive, Barry's life is saved by Vanessa, a florist in New York City. As their relationship blossoms, he discovers humans actually eat honey, and subsequently decides to sue them.
Although Jim Cummings provided the opening narration at the beginning of this movie, he did not do his role as Winnie the Pooh in this movie, because this is a movie from DreamWorks and not from Disney.
Barry B. Benson:
Sorry I'm late, where should I sit?
Rose Parade Princess: Who are you?
Barry B. Benson: I believe I'm the pea.
Rose Parade Princess: The pea is supposed to be under the mattresses!
Barry B. Benson: Not in this fairy tale sweetheart.
(at around 36 mins) The windshield-wipers that Barry and the mosquito are riding on, don't move all the way over to the driver's side of the wind-shield. However; the marks made by the wipers do go all the way over to the driver's side of the wind-shield.
The Ending Credits drift in a zig zag manner and bees fly about.
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.
