Bee Movie = UGH

The kids got this movie as a present last weekend, and even tho I wasn't so sure of it, we sat down and watched it yesterday. Let's just say we are going to "lend" it to Auntie Karami for a looooong time.

I was disappointed in Kids In Mind (movie ratings website) because tho it was pretty thorough, they missed a LOT that I was disgusted with.

For example they reviewed " . A woman is roughly handled by the police, and a man is arrested and roughly handled by the police."

What they actually left out is that its a woman sitting at a table, who's head is PUSHED onto the table, then GUNS are pointed at her head by the police surrounding her!! I think my chin hit my chest in shock.

There were guns everywhere I looked towards the end, guns guarding floats, police running around with guns, guns being pointed at people. I was really mad that the Website didn't list the guns, I consider the mere appearance of them in a movie notable in a review. They mentioned a tranq gun ONCE.

They missed a part where people are actually smoking outside, I was like shit, I do NOT want to have this talk yet, Mr K hasn't noticed smokers yet. But there they were puffing away in a kids movie. And they had cigarettes in their hands, pretty obvious. I think that no matter the "plot"
smoking should NOT be allowed in a kids movie.

I think it was underrated for violence, the words "kill" "killed" and "dead' are used SO frequently I lost count. The website did mention some instances where they used the words, but OMG, it was CONSTANT in the movie.

My review? Its freaking AWFUL. I just sat the whole movie cringing. I am getting more and more liberal with what Kade can watch, but they lost me at the whole guns being pointed at the womans head while she was "detained" on the table.

THIS website had a more accurate review, too bad I found it after. They list all the smoking and guns use, plus more of the actual language used.

Lol and theres me worrying about transexual bees and legs missing ;)

Sam loves Bee Movie. I just wish it was a little more accurate where bees are concerned. I just don't see why they couldn't have had a female bee as the protagonist.

We all loved the movie. Well, I didn't like the court case, but Tyson really liked it. We took him to the theatre before Chritmas and we now have a burnt copy that we watch.
I didn't notice any of the things you pointed out...not even the guns or smoking. Hmm..might have to watch it again tonight.
Overall though we really enjoyed it.
