On a recent plane ride I was faced with a choice that would define my life for the next 90-120 minutes – What movie to watch? The inflight entertainment system boasted a plenty of options, from the Muppets to Piranha. Not being one for the puppets or gruesome death by rabid-killer prehistoric-monster- fish, I ended up with the Bee Movie. I remembered the movie from a while ago, and decided to give it a shot. If the Bee Movie has yet to grace your pupillary sphincter ( a word that I learned today, courtesy of “ An Abundance of Katherines” by John Green, referring to the muscle in the iris that works to constrict the pupil) here’s a quick synopsis. If your pupillary sphincter has in fact witnessed the Bee Movie, please free skip down and to spare it the following quick synopsis.
