Bee Movie

(USA, 2007, 91 minutes)

A wisecracking honeybee reluctant to spend his entire life working for the hive ventures out into New York City and upon finding humans harvest and sell honey decides to sue them. Amiable animated comedy that derives its fun and games from the wry humour of recluse comedian Jerry Seinfeld, who voices the lead character, produced and wrote the movie; but despite the quality animation, the ecological message and the smart one-liners, as a family animation it's probably a bit too sophisticated for kids and not solid enough for adults.
