Bee Movie (not to be confused with 70's horror movies with bad acting and terrible fx).
Let me guess, you saw the picture above and thought to yourself, "Bee Movie? I forgot that was even out." Well, that's kinda how I felt. It was so forgettable that I even forgot to write the review. So days later, here I am.
When I go to see animated movies I always hope to leave thinking that the movie could have easily been marketed to adults only. I love when there is enough subtle adult/intelligent humor that it's easy to enjoy and get a few laughs out myself. This movie was the complete opposite. I left the theatre and immediately forgot I had seen it. Actually, I felt like I hadn't even seen it at all.
I think it was a mixture of to many side stories, no character development, a plot that was shortchanged and no background on these Bees that made it so hard to get involved in the movie. Now, I understand that this type of movie was made for kids and I'm sure they will love it. But what happened to movies like Toy Story? That was a good animated film.
This film climaxed when it's trailers where still being played before movies. It was a good idea that but a terrible follow through.
