Jerry Seinfeld co-wrote this animated film where he provides the voice for the lead character, a bee named Barry B. Benson.

He's unhappy just making honey in his bustling hive and wants to see what is outside in the big, wide world.

Barry has a mixed view of things that he encounters, but when he sees a large bee farm in full action, he's upset and makes a decision to sue the human race.

The bees are as cute as can be, with big bug-eyes and black stripes wrapped around their large yellow behinds. In fact, all of the characters are colorful and lively.

There's plenty of acting talent to lend their voices; Rene Zellweger is Vanessa, a florist that Barry has a thing for, Matthew Broderick is Adam, a fellow bee and Chris Rock is Mooseblood the mosquito.

Some of the humor is aimed at adults, but the silly antics of Barry and his friends, along with some good action scenes will keep the kids entertained.
