The sell: The Bee movie should never have been made, but it was, which caused what I believe to be a rift in the time-space continuum, sending our time-line spiraling into chaos. The premise of the bee movie is simple. A jaded worker bee explores the human world, falls in love with a human woman, realizes bees are being exploited, incites a labor strike, goes to court, wins, realizes the essential role of symbiotic relationships in ecological balance/function, and finally returns to work but with better laws and protections. Every piece of story is completely out of left field. So many layers of bizarre concept had to be approved by a team of producers (which is hard proof of a serious drug problem in Hollywood.) Need I repeat, the anthropomorphized bee falls in love with a human woman AND it is requited?? She leaves her boyfriend for him? Some producer said “Yeah, sounds good.” There isn’t even accurate information about bees in the movie. If it were a realistic representation of bee-life, the main character would be female and the bees would be twerking a lot more. This movie ought to be essential viewing purely for the spectacle. This movie marks a cultural reset and deserves to be canonized as such.
