Synopsis

Trio of children's animated adventures from the DreamWorks studio. In 'Bee Movie' (2007), Barry (voice of Jerry Seinfeld), fresh out of bee college, wants more than the daily chore of working in the hive; he wants to get out there, exploring the big wide world, spreading his wings. When he finally gets the chance to be a 'pollen jock', he has a near-fatal accident but is saved by the intervention of kindly New York florist Vanessa (voice of Renee Zellweger), and a friendship quickly blossoms. But when he discovers the sad truth that the humans are taking the honey and selling it for their own profit, Barry becomes so incensed that he decides to hit them where it hurts - right in the pocket, and takes them to court. In 'Antz' (1998), Z (voiced by Woody Allen) is a neurotic ant who lives and works in a colony beneath New York's Central Park. Z falls in love with Princess Bala (voice of Sharon Stone) after she dances with him incognito at the workers' bar, and swaps places with his army friend Weaver (voice of Sylvester Stallone) in the hope of spotting her while on parade. Unfortunately, Z's life is placed in jeopardy when Bala's fiance, General Mandible (voice of Gene Hackman), orders his squadron on a suicidal mission against the termites. Finally, in 'Flushed Away' (2006), Roddy (voice of Hugh Jackman) is a decidedly upper-crust 'society mouse' who lives the life of a beloved pet in a posh Kensington flat. When a sewer rat called Sid (voice of Shane Richie) comes spewing out of the sink and decides he's hit the jackpot, Roddy schemes to rid himself of the pest by luring him into the 'whirlpool'. Sid may be an ignorant slob, but he's no fool, so it is Roddy who winds up being flushed away into the bustling sewer world of Ratropolis. There Roddy meets Rita (voice of Kate Winslet), an enterprising scavenger who works the sewers in her faithful boat, the Jammy Dodger.
