Sincerity often paves the way for the maudlin and overly touchy-feely, and that's what happens here.

Audience Reviews for The Bumblebee Flies Anyway
Wow this was excellent, I had no idea what this was about it just came on tv and so I watched and was amazed! Great acting, the story is very deep and emotional and keeps you at the edge of your seat even without action, how could this be you say well I don't know either but it works and it delivers the thrills.
Life is a terminal illness Barney Snow is a teenager that lost his memory in an unfortunate accident. Physicians begin using cutting edge techniques to try regain his lost memories. Barney finds himself in a special hospital with terminally ill children. As he begins regaining his memory, he also begins befriending some of the other patients. Can Barney coupe with his lost memories and soon to be lost friends? "He's here but he's not dying." "Then he doesn't belong here." Martin Duffy, director of Summer of the Flying Saucer, The Boy from Mercury, and Taliesman Jones, delivers The Bumblebee Flies Anyway. The storyline for this picture is entertaining and worth following. The characters are well delivered and developed and the script is creative. The acting is solid and the cast includes Elijah Wood, Janeane Garofalo, George Gore, and Rachel Leigh Cook. "Why do you use a wheel chair?" "So I don't have to walk." The Bumbleebee Flies Away aired on cable last night and the plot seemed interesting. I had never heard of this film. The overall subplot of the children of the hospital was outstanding but the end is a bit "magical" without fully explaining itself. Overall, I enjoyed this movie but it was not as good as it could have been. "I have a disease that shuts down my kidneys." Grade: C+
Such a lovely masterpiece! So artful and delicately beautiful. I hold this film close to my heart.
