Very enjoyable animated film is smarter and funnier than the usual family-friendly CGI talking animal picture. Jerry Seinfeld's laconic humor makes an absurd story work, and there's great voice work from an all-star cast. The animation is fairly average, and the ending is pretty conventional - but it's all made up for by some big laughs.
My friends and I were pretty drunk when we saw this (it's the only way we can explain why we bothered to watch it at all) and it was still unbearably bad. Didn't anybody else find it creepy that a bee and a human had the hots for each other?
I give credit to the film since I honestly didnt know where it was going with the story since it it had unpredictable turns here and there. It had some good comedy, likable main characters, a very creative world and atmosphere for the bees and a original plot. The problem with the film is that it starts building up interesting plot arcs that after some time are not addressed again and it looses focus.
