Critics Consensus

Bee Movie has humorous moments, but its awkward premise and tame delivery render it mostly forgettable.

Movie Info

A recent college graduate, Barry B. Benson wants more out of life than the inevitable career that awaits him and every other worker in New Hive City--a job at Honex making honey. Barry jumps at the chance to venture out of the hive, and soon encounters a world beyond his wildest dreams. When Barry inadvertently meets a quirky florist named Vanessa, he breaks one of the cardinal rules of beedom--he talks to her. A friendship soon develops, and Barry gets a guided crash course in the ways of the human race. When he shockingly discovers that anyone can purchase honey right off the grocery store shelf, he realizes that his true calling is to stop this injustice and set the world right by suing the human race for stealing the bees' precious honey.

    While Jerry Seinfeld is funny enough and the premise too absurd to be ignored, Bee Movie is only mildly entertaining that only pulls through thanks to some cool visuals and some moments of truly great comedy.

    Bee Movie is just trying to be fun and I think a lot of people overlook that, however there are very pathetic jokes in this film and the plot is not exactly exciting, but other than its an enjoyable watch.

    ENOUGH WITH THE METAPHORS AND THE GODAMN PUNS! They made this film so bloody annoying! The animation isn't really anything we've not seen before fro Dreamworks and it's an appauling outing. The main character is just SO IRRITATING and the story is nothing original. It's an instantly forgettable film that is appropriately titled B-MOVIE....

    Declaring fairly enticing animation, yet a terribly unrelatable storyline where Seinfeld tears down any hope this movie may have at being enjoyable
