Wow I lost a lot of respect for him, just from that video... Talk about not worth getting upset about.

That Larry King video was great. I can't really fault Jerry for his response, it's kind of an insult to ask him if the show was cancelled. Is Larry just that stupid?

Bee Larry King wouldn't have made that mistake.

Larry King is notorious for knowing virtually nothing about his guests before they come on his show. It's great that Seinfeld called him on his unprofessional cluelessness.

I wonder if I could find a free Bee Movie poster. Anyone have a "source"?

Wow Jerry acted like a big dick in that interview. DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?!?!?!

He didn't even just joke about it and move on. He had to reinforce how stupid Larry was for not knowing his awesomeness.

I have no problem with Jerry's response. Larry deserves it for asking something stupid like that.

Larry would probably ask Jesus how it felt, being staked to the cross.

Maybe it is a stupid question but he acted like a stuck up douche. Does he realize he's on tv?

I'm sure Jesus wouldn't have responded "What!?! A cross?!?! Of course it fuckin hurt. I'm the son of man for christ' sake. Have you read the bible? I'm the star of that show pal. I'm the reason your sins are forgiven."

Larry: "So, Jesus, you were Crucified?"
Jesus: "eh, yeah Larry."
Larry: "And you didn't crucify them, they crucified you right?"
Jesus: "... You're not aware of this?"
Larry: "I'm asking."
Jesus: "You think I crucified them? Are you under the impression that I crucified them?"
Larry: "Did I hurt you, Jesus?"
Jesus: "I thought that was pretty well documented. Is this still CNN? I was crucified for the sins of man, Larry. Do you know who I am?"
Larry: "Jewish guy, Nazareth."
Jesus: "Yes! 72 hours I was dead!"
Larry: "Don't take it so bad."
Jesus: "Well, it's a big difference between CRUCIFYING and BEING CRUCIFIED!"
Larry: "Ok, I'm sorry. We'll be right back..."
Jesus: "Can we get a Bible in here? For Larry to go over."

I don't see what Jerry was getting so riled up about in that video. Larry didn't really ask him a question. If anything, he was making a half-joke about the end of the series. They confirmed the show lasted nine years, and Larry said "So they didn't cancel you, you cancelled them." A weak attempt at humor, but you would think a comedian right there in the studio would have recognized a joke and just laughed it off and moved on. Larry wasn't asking him stupidly IF the series was cancelled. If anything, he was confirming that it was NEVER cancelled. Get over yourself, Seinfuck!

I don't know how I missed that, but that video was absolutely hilarious. I'm with Jerry on that one, I don't really even understand what Larry expected Jerry to say. I think Seinfeld was making a bit out of it after the initial shock, but holy crap that was great.

I guess not a lot of DVDTalkers are watching this....

I caught this tonight and enjoyed it. I thought it was cute, with some really funny moments. Definitely better then most of the other non-Pixar animated films lately.

Spoiler:
The tranquilizing of Pooh Bear was hilarious

My 16-month-old son loves watching the "Bee Movie" trailer on my Xbox 360, but his attention span isn't long enough to make it all the way through. When he wants to watch it, he points at the screen and makes a buzzing noise. When I ask him if he can say bee, he says "bzzzz."

Sorry to bring this thread back to life, but I finally saw this on dvd with my kids. Painful. This is the worst thing I've seen this year. Terrible voice acting. If I had the script in my hand I could muted the tv and done a better job myself. The animation was pretty.
On another note; there is a trend in Hollywood these days regaurding the jewish religion. It seems if you are a jew it must be stated in the movie. Why did religion need to be brought into this movie? "I hope she's Bee-ish."
I found all of the subtle stereotyping disturbing.
