Buzz is out on the street the
years funniest new animated hit from
the mind of Jerry Seinfeld, Bee Movie,
wings its way to DVD with swarms of
fun and laughter for all ages. And dont
forget the hilarious bonus content!
THE WORLD JUST GOT A WHOLE LOT SWEETER Bee Movie, written, produced
and starring world-renowned comedian Jerry Seinfeld, took audiences by swarm;
earning over $274 million in worldwide box offices and garnering Golden Globe,
Annie and Critics Choice Award nominations for Best Animated Feature Film.
Honey is very funny in DreamWorks' sweetest new animated smash hit, Bee Movie,
which makes its buzz-worthy debut on DVD on Monday 19 May (2008). The film boasts
an all-star cast of voice talent and a delightful and engaging story that's
suitable for viewers of all ages.
Bee Movie follows the hilarious adventures of a honey bee named Barry
B Benson (Jerry Seinfeld) who is certain there must be more to life than working
in the same job at Honex for the rest of your life. The ambitious Barry realises
that he is not cut out for the honey field and soars into the world beyond the
hive in search of nectar and excitement and in doing so he breaks the
bee law that you never, ever, ever talk to humans.
Bee Movie is the story of Barry's fantastic adventure outside the hive.
Determined to earn his 'wings' and become a pollen jock, he sets off an un-bee-lievable
chain of events and proves that the little guy can make a big difference to
the world and change it for the better by "thinking bee". Helped, naturally,
by a cast of great supporting characters that include sympathetic human florist
Vanessa Bloome (Renée Zellweger), fellow bee Adam Flayman (Matthew Broderick),
Mooseblood the Mosquito (Chris Rock) "I was already a blood-sucking parasite;
all I needed was a briefcase" and the high-flying pollen jocks.
But not everyone loves honey bees, and Vanessa's friend Ken (Patrick Warburton:
Family Guy) does a good line in rolled-up newspapers.
Alarmed at how much honey is being stolen from the bees and horrified to discover
the existence of honey farms, Barry takes on the might of the honey industry
"Do you think these billion-dollar, multi-national food companies have
good lawyers?" and champions the rights of the bees in Court against
top lawyer Layton J Montgomery (John Goodman), who is defending the bounty of
nature for the human race.
Judge Bumbleton (Oprah Winfrey) presides over the court and Ray Liotta and Sting
make brief appearances. Bee Movie also features Bee Larry King (Larry
King), Janet Benson (Kathy Bates), Martin Benson (Barry Levinson), Lou Lu Duca
(Rip Torn), Splitz/Klaus VanderHayden (Tom Papa), Jock 2 (Andy Robin) and Jeanette
Chung/Mother Cow (Tress MacNeille).
Yet another delightful creation from the talent pool at DreamWorks and one that
will make you think twice before swatting an insect, Bee Movie has great
little cars and buses, bee antennae that work like mobile phones and
watch out for the remarkable innovation called a 'nectar-collector'.
Will the bees win against the human race? And if they do, will they live to
rue the day? Who will protect the bees? And yes there certainly is a
sting in the tail…
Produced by Jerry Seinfeld and Christina Steinberg, Bee Movie is Directed
by Simon J Smith and Steven Hickner and is written by Jerry Seinfeld and Spike
Feresten, Barry Marden and Andy Robin. The neat music is by Rupert Gregson-Williams
and the Art Direction and Character Design are by Christophe Lautrette.
The Bee Movie DVD presentation includes a hive-full of bonus material
that will keep viewers as busy as… (well, you know what!), with hours of bee-hind-the-scenes
features and fun-filled activities. The two-disc special edition DVD offers
fans even more with alternate endings, lost scenes, commentary by Jerry
Seinfeld and the filmmakers, the TV Juniors segments that aired on NBeeC,
Jerry Seinfeld's in-costume flight over the Cannes Film Festival, an inside
look at the cast, a music video, a DreamWorks Animation Video Jukebox, a look
at the technology behind the film, the early live-action trailers and much,
So hive yourself away at home for the evening with your family and enjoy the
bee-autiful Bee Movie on DVD so much better than droning on incessantly
about life's little problems... This lovely and uplifting animated film will
put a spring in your step and remind you of the power of flowers...
