Bee Movie is a comedy that will change everything you think you know about bees. 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.
Ray Liotta and Sting make cameo appearances in the film as witnesses in court – Liotta as the face of “Ray Liotta Private Select Honey,” and Sting defends his right to his stage name. John Goodman also lends his voice as the attorney representing the humans. The cameo featuring Sting is almost worth the admission price, with the musician languidly fidgeting on the witness stand while Barry accuses him of appropriating bee culture for “a pranceabout stage name.”
Bee Movie is released to cinemas in the UK on 14 December 2007.
