- Bee Movie review by Kurtz
This film is perfectly OK in that it has a nice script with a few Seinfeldisms and an amusing turn from a self-mocking Ray Liotta to keep the adults happy: it looks fabulous with a golden colour palette and the animators have lots of fun with the movements and flight of the bees. But the central concept- young bee pitches up in the big (human) city, strikes up a friendship with Renee Zellweger’s fetching florist and begins a lawsuit against mankind when he realises that we are helping ourselves to his honey- is desperately lazy; I mean surely that’s a central rule for all these types of films- “A Bug’s Life”, “Antz”, “Toy Story”, even “Lady and the Tramp”- the characters can show awareness of the human world but can never properly interact with it because they can’t talk! But in “Bee Movie” we’re soon being asked to swallow (and somebody nearly does) bee lawyers in a human courtroom, bee reporters at a human press conference, bees being treated in human hospitals, bees flying airliners etc. etc. Grrr! I was itching for a rolled up newspaper by the end! My twelve year old said it made perfect sense to her, though- maybe it’s just me they’re not talking to!

Bee Movie is really good family movie, there is some great story lines and great gags but the end of the movie is a bit lame, sorry!!
