Touted as Jerry Seinfeld's first major project since the 1998 end of his long-running eponymous TV series, 2007's computer-animated BEE MOVIE stars the popular comedian as the voice of Barry B. Benson, a young bee eager to explore the world outside of his hive. As he discovers how people live in New York City, he befriends a human florist, Vanessa Bloome (Renee Zellweger), and becomes outraged at the selling of honey, leading to a lawsuit and, of course, plenty of Seinfeldian misadventures.
Helmed by directors Steve Hickner (THE PRINCE OF EGYPT) and Simon J. Smith (a member of the SHREK creative team), BEE MOVIE lightens Seinfeld's notoriously stinging humor for a family audience, while staying true to its inherent New York-bred quirkiness. This leaves room for the film to feature impressive (if anatomically incorrect) bug-oriented CGI animation and a solid supporting cast that includes Zellweger, Matthew Broderick, John Goodman, Chris Rock, and Ray Liotta (who plays a honey-peddling animated version of himself). Although it inhabits some of the same insect-populated territory as A BUG's LIFE and ANTZ, BEE MOVIE also nods to THE GRADUATE (admittedly a Seinfeld favorite) in its restless protagonist, resulting in a playful and thoroughly entertaining film that even manages to work an environmental message into its colorful palette.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
What a delightful movie for kids & adults alike. I bought this for my 5 yr old granddaughter & we finally had a chance to watch it. It was so well made,so cute & very realistic when it came to explaining how bees do things, w/ humor injected into each scene. That's Seinfeld for you! He takes a very normal fact of life, Bees making honey & turns it completely around to show the way the bees feel & how they react. Of course this is all animation & your imagination plays havoc w/ your reality side, but all in all, we loved it & my Granddaughter took it home to watch again. A few things went right over her head, but no big deal, the moral of the story was easy to understand & the film was really very innovative for a cartoon. Thankx OVERSTOCK for another great buy!
