Bee Movie


beemovieBarry B. Benson, a honey bee, has just graduated from college, but before he goes to work in the honey industry he ventures out in the human world where he discovers injustices. Jerry Seinfeld’s grand animated project was reportedly not the result of some fully thought-through idea; the premise is very reminiscent of Antz (1998). Still, the film is handsomely produced and Seinfeld’s comedy has been ingeniously translated into the world of bees; the longer the movie progresses, the more absurd it becomes. Lively and funny efforts from the cast; the film has charm, but doesn’t entirely live up to its potential.

2007-U.S. Animated. 90 min. Color. Directed by Steve Hickner, Simon J. Smith. Screenplay: Jerry Seinfeld, Spike Feresten, Barry Marder, Andy Robin. Voices of Jerry Seinfeld (Barry B. Benson), Renée Zellweger (Vanessa Bloome), Matthew Broderick (Adam Flayman), Patrick Warburton, John Goodman, Chris Rock… Kathy Bates, Barry Levinson, Ray Liotta, Sting, Oprah Winfrey, Rip Torn, Michael Richards.

Trivia: Co-produced by Seinfeld.

Quote: “He’s no goodfella, he’s a badfella!” (Seinfeld referring to Liotta)
