One of my best friends and I are avid listeners of local radio station HOT 99.5. And just recently, she was named the 99.5 HotSpot Member of the Day (check out her page here), which landed her a feature on the radio's main webpage and a prize pack stuffed with goodies. And almost lost among all the prizes were 2 tickets to an advanced screening of the animated "BEE MOVIE" opening in theaters this Friday, November 2. Taking yours truly, we were excited for the work day to be over and done with. To be seeing the movie for free was one thing, but to be seeing it 4 days in advance was a whole other story with, dare I say, bragging rights.

We arrived "early" only to find a long winding line, a huge "small" popcorn, a funky tasting mystery soda, and a packed theater with 3 entire rows ridiculously reserved for the press. After finding some of the only seats left, down in the front section, and some delay, the Dreamworks logo finally appears and finally the movie. I usually try to avoid sitting up front, but left with no other choice, I actually think it made the movie even more enjoyable. We were flying and zooming along side with the bees.

Meet Barry B. Benson (Jerry Seinfeld), a bee who has recently graduated from college and is getting ready to choose a career he'll keep for the rest of his life. Unable to conform to this "yellow and black" lifestyle, Barry seeks to adventure outside the hive where he meets a human florist named Vanessa (Renee Zellweger). Jam packed with big celebrity names, "BEE MOVIE" delivers a whopping help of laugh out loud moments, animation sequences to match, and has a little bit of everything - action, romance, drama, comedy, and a slice-of-life. You'll want to see it again and again.
