What really made me mad was locally SCHOOLS had actual scheduled class trips to see this movie AFTER CCD first started making the news - they wanted to show the importance of the bees and beekeeping - I don't think it did either.
I couldn't get past the "Entertainment" because I fixated and moaned at the foolishness of the inaccuracies - it could have been done with accurate info and still been a great movie, instead they aimed for jokes and very good animation (far from Shrek mind you) and handed the unknowing public more untruths than a thousand rumors could have done. What a shame the had no one technical on this production that insisted on some degree of reality - I don't care if the audience was supposed to be 5 year olds, shouldn't they be able to go home with some real neat facts to talk about over dinner?
I saw a movie lately where a daughter was plaaying Texas Holdem' against her Dad in a Vegas Tourament, he pushed the last handful of chips in front of him saying "All in" couldn't have been $50,000 there and in responces (instead of calling, which is matching his all in bet) she also says "All in" and pushes here 3 million in chips out on the table. That just isn't what happens, he had no more chips, she need only match it, she couldn't have raised if she wanted cause he had no more chips - this fact of the game was strictly hollywood and lost anyone who knew anything about cards. It blew the movie and through its cribility out the window, that is what bee novie did for me.
I understand a box full of toys come to life, it is a cartoon - a mouse becomes a great chef at a 5 star restruaunt is a cartoon, a trip into the world of the behive, showing drones coming back with barrels of pollen and it getting squeezed into honey, that isn't a cartoon it is a shame!
