| Ignore the critics. We had a great time.
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.

Did You Know?

Trivia

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.


Quotes

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.


Goofs

(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.


Crazy Credits

The Ending Credits drift in a zig zag manner and bees fly about.


Alternate Versions

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.
