DREAMWORKS ANIMATION’S “BEE MOVIE”
DreamWorks Animation’s “Bee Movie” features the comic talents of Jerry Seinfeld and tells the story of Barry B. Benson – a recent college graduate bee who wants more out of life than making honey. When Benson ventures out into the world and learns that humans have been stealing honey from bees for centuries, he takes his case to court, and wins. Victory is sweet until the balance of nature is upset, and Barry B. Benson must prove that even a little bee can change the world. “Bee Movie” arrives in theatres November 2, 2007. (Rated: PG)
