The Bee Movie offers plenty of fun for most family members. Still parents need to be aware that the film contains some brief veiled sexual comments and drug references. Name-calling and some infrequent but irreverent religious comments are made as well. For most families, the violent content will be of most concern. Believing she is asleep, a woman stabs herself in the hand with a fork to wake herself. Later when she is facing some difficulties, she momentarily considers suicide. Among other things, the bees often find themselves in peril as they navigate the outside world. A bee is sucked into a car engine, one is threatened by a man using an aerosol can and lighter to try and light the bee on fire, and another is hospitalized after stinging a man. A quick depiction of smoking is also shown.
