    I am so glad Bee Movie bombed. I can't stand Seinfeld. The movie is horrible and leagues away from Pixar stuff. That's a given of course. He deserves it for attacking that woman who claimed Mrs. Seinfeld lifted recipes from her cookbook. He's insane.

      While a spouse's cookbook has so very much to do with an animated film's release (?!)...$39.1 million on an opening weekend isn't exacting bombing.
      That's more than some films make in their entire theatrical release.
      Is it Pixar level? Of course not. Is it supposed to be? Of course not.

        I don't go see any DreamWorks films. I don't care for them at all.

        I saw both Shrek's and didn't like them. I saw Madagascar and I didn't like it. I saw SharkTale and thought it was a third-rate Finding Nemo.

          Bee Movie was just ok. It certainly wasn't 39.1 million good.
          But until the next family movie comes out, it will retain a good
          portion of the box office.
          Critter Country's a mess ev'r since the Country Bears were kicked out. Ya can't cover pooh with honey and 'spect people ta like it.

            ^ I think Bee Movies success has more to do with that (lack of family movies in the market right now) than anything else.

            There will be PLENTY of Family movies coming out in the next 2 months, and Bee Movie will quickly fade. Which is probably why Dreamworks released it now instead of 2 or 3 weeks from now.

                'Bee Movie' finds box office honey

                DreamWorks' feature stings competition

                DreamWorks Animation's "Bee Movie" showed surprising sting in its second weekend, buzzing its way to the top of the domestic box and beating out holdover "American Gangster" and new entries "Fred Claus" and Tom Cruise-Meryl Streep-Robert Redford starrer "Lions for Lambs."

                "Bee," voiced by Jerry Seinfeld, declined just 32% to an estimated $26 million from 3,944 playdates for a cume of $72.2 million, according to Rentrak.

                That's quite a honied victory, considering "Bee" opened at No. 2 the previous weekend behind the bow of Universal's "Gangster" It's not often that a movie moves up to the top of the chart in its second weekend.

                In its second frame, "Gangster" came in No. 2, declining 44% to an estimated $24.3 million from 3,059 runs for a tasty cume of $80.7 million.
