Little Bee is a b-grade computer-animated film, which is clearly a blatant rip off of Jerry Seinfeld's Bee Movie and is aimed at young children.
While some of the aspects to this film are more accurate than in Bee movie, especially when it states that male bees, who aren't drones, are soldiers and only the female bees, other than the queen, make the honey, Little Bee is still not a great film.
Little Bee tells the story of the busy residents of a massive beehive, who are on the brink of war because a few of them have decided that "the rules" don't apply to them. Beenard, voiced by the one and only Veronica Taylor, who you may know as the voice of Ask Ketchum from the ever popular Pokémon series, is a soldier bee in training who wants to be a honey-maker, his classmate Beeuty is a honey-maker who also want to fight and the princess wants to be queen and a spy when she grows up.
When the hive's queen doesn't like the princess's idea of having an elite team of informer bees to learn the secrets of their enemies, the princess takes it upon herself to find out if there is anything going on. She soon finds out that the bee keepers have decided that the little bees hive isn't producing a good quality honey anymore and are planning to destroy them. Meanwhile Beenard and Beeuty have devised a plan to break into the kitchen to make new and better tasting honey after finding out that the hives "master chef's" honey isn't as good as he thinks it is.
The young bees work together to save the hive and all its residents, by using their special, preferred skills, even though they are frowned upon by their society for being different and prove that being unique and following your dreams, is the best thing of all.
Little Bee may not be the best computer-animated film in the world, but it is still pretty fun for the kids and teaches them the values of looking after each other, doing what's right, even if their peers don't and following their dreams to succeed at what they want to do with their lives.
Little Bee is rated G for general guidance and is available on DVD.
