Bee Movie is a B-grade animation. *why*

Not that there is anything very wrong about this odd-ball animation by comedy man Jerry Seinfeld, the movie just leaves you feeling rather unsettling and disturbed. *okay*

Barry Benson the Bee finds himself disillusioned having to work in the same job for the rest of his life, decides to break out his bee society and finds himself freedom and love. *gulps*

It has its laughable moments, on its satire on politics and pop culture. Expect several ‘cameos’ from Larry King, Sting from Police, Vincent the Bear from Over the Hedge, ‘Winnie the Pooh’ and Chris Rock as the blood sucking male mosquito. *haha*

If that troubled you (male mosquitoes don’t suck blood), the other scientific inaccuracies about bee will probably irritate you. Kids may walk out of the cinema with the impression that bees talk and build knitted families. Not that it matters, but give the writers an encyclopedia on the nature of male and female insects. *hmmm*

What really destabilized me was bees fighting a case in court with humans, and falling in love with a human. Now imagine Ms Bridget Jones kissing an insect. *eeekk*

Like other animations, there are moral lessons to be learnt, like we should look for our freedom than to confirm to societal norms. But the ending tells otherwise – contradictory. Quirkiness may not work on everyone. *hmmm*

Bee Movie – All that buzz may sting
