This is just one more movie in a long line of movies that I can't evaluate on any level except one. Like Antz and A Bug's Life, every time I think about or see a reference to the movie, my mind is completely consumed by one objection:
BEES ARE FEMALE. THE ONLY NON-FEMALE BEES ARE BRAINLESS DRONES WHO DIE TO IMPREGNATE THE QUEEN. SAME WITH ANTS.
All those bees you see are female. All those ants you see are female. They're also sisters. This bothers me so much that I can't even comprehend seeing this movie without my head exploding.
Yes, I know I should be more bothered that they're talking. I know it's a kid's movie. I know it's stupid.
I finally just saw this. I really enjoyed it. Most of the fun was just in getting to listen to Jerry for a couple hours, but I laughed out loud at a handful of the jokes too. Pretty much any moment where they pushed the envelope was a great one.
