Plan Bee: The Sting In The Tale

Plan Bee: The Sting Is In The Tale is an extremely z-grade computer-animated film, with a matching script, soundtrack and voice actors to boot.

Plan Bee is a terribly made rip off of Jerry Seinfeld's Bee Movie, which is aimed at children, who may appreciate this film, but most probably wouldn't if they are about the age of around 6-7 years of age.

The animation in Plan Bee is clearly made by amateurs and almost resembles the same animation used in old school Nintendo 64 games, though the non-moving backgrounds look pretty good, which begs to ask the question of weather the producers should stick to using 2-D animation. The so-called bees looked more like wasps, which is further enforced when one of the "Bad guy" bees stings a frog and then flies off, completely fine, even though we all know that a real bee would have died soon after and if you or your child is prone to having seizures, this film may not be for you, as when the bees are seen flying, which they do a lot of during the course of their journey, the bees' wings look like they are rapidly flashing lines, which could trigger a reaction.

The voice actors make most of the characters sound like winging, wining little creatures, who are always down and out or are "like totally" annoying.

Plan Bee tells the story of a hive of bees, who have been taken under the ruling of a new and evil queen and it is up to Bing, his love interest Bonnie and their renegade group of fellow worker-bee friends, who refer to themselves as "The A-Team" to take down the evil queen and her loyal henchmen and re-elect their true queen as their fair and just ruler, with a fight scene, which looks a lot more like some sort of obscure mating dance than a battle of epic proportions, which could be rather amusing for the adults to see, meaning it's so bad, it could be laughable.

Although this is a pretty poorly made film at the best of times, it still has a lot to be learned from within its plot. It teaches its viewers to question unfair ruling, with many references to American history, with the enslaved hive bees representing the freeing of the African-American slaves, along with the message that we should only be taking no more from nature than we actually need.

Plan Bee: The Sting Is In The Tale is rated G for general exhibition and is available on DVD.
