Who saw it? What did you think of it?
I thought it was cute but it's not something I'd buy on video or watch again anytime soon. Unlike Cars, which resisted the temptation to include every possible vehicular joke, it's as if the script writers brainstormed every possible bee cliche and then focused the script on incorporating all those. The first half of the movie felt a lot like Antz: same plot, different bug species. Overall I liked it but it could've been better. Some of the humor was downright hysterical but not anything I'd hesitate to let my son hear.
Spoiler alert: But what the H#LL were they thinking showing a guy use an aerosol can and a lighter to make a homemade blowtorch in a kids movie??? That's way too easily imitated, even more so than Lightning beating the train, because most kids have one or both of those items in their house. You can bet in each theater there was at least one kid who couldn't wait to go home and try that stunt for him or herself.
