Bee Movie

Rated PG 90 minutes 2007

According to the press notes, Jerry Seinfeld finally agreed to make a movie -- voicing the central character in an animated feature as well as cowriting and producing -- after pitching just the title to DreamWorks' Steven Spielberg over dinner. If part of the premise is that zillions of bees can collectively run a honey factory or land an airplane, another part seems to be that that zillions of one-liners can add up to a narrative that works as an ecological parable while equating reality with brand-name recognition. ("My sweater's Ralph Lauren and I have no pants," the bratty hero proudly explains at one point.) The whole thing's pretty cute and breezy, but don't expect logic or coherence. Other voices include those of Renee Zellwegger, Matthew Broderick, John Goodman, and Chris Rock (88 min., 2007).
