Having just graduated from college, a bee by the name of Barry B. Benson (Jerry Seinfeld) finds himself disillusioned with the prospect of having only one career choice – honey. As he ventures outside of the hive for the first time, he breaks one of the cardinal rules of the bee world and talks to a human, a New York City florist named Vanessa (Renée Zellweger). He is shocked to discover that the humans have been stealing and eating the bees’ honey for centuries, and ultimately realizes that his true calling in life is to set the world right by suing the human race for stealing their precious honey.
How do you follow up the best television sitcom in history? If you’re Jerry Seinfeld you don’t. Instead you take it easy, hang out with your family, swim in your money bin, and wait. Now nearly ten years later Jerry’s back, but not with more nothing. Instead he’s bringing us a bunch of animated bees. Sound crazy? Or is it so sane that it just blew your mind?
Jerry has had the good sense to avoid the traps his ‘Seinfeld’ costars have fallen into, signing up for failed sitcom after failed sitcom in an attempt to recapture the ‘Seinfeld’ magic on their own. Jerry’s throwing out the old and going a completely different direction. It can’t really get much more different. Nobody knows what to expect from Bee Movie, but with Jerry involved it’s a must see. Prepare to buy a ticket and grab a box of Junior Mints. It’s chocolate, it’s peppermint – it’s delicious!
