A Second Trailer For BEE MOVIE Is Online! Even Funnier Than The First One!!

Published at: Feb. 16, 2007, 2 a.m. CST

”You know what E.T. was made out of?” “What?” “E.T. was made out of brown Play-Doh and chicken wire.” “I did not know that, Steven, and I’m... thrilled for your success.” Hats off to Jerry Seinfeld and the creative team behind BEE MOVIE for putting together two of the funniest teaser trailers in recent memory. I happened to stumble across this while checking Yahoo! for the new GRINDHOUSE trailer, and I’m still laughing. I may be tired of talking animal CGI movies, but if the final film has half the wicked sense of humor that these trailers do, then count me in. You’ll find both of the trailers right here!

    These trailers have been pretty damn funny, but am I the only one who's getting the feeling that they're probably funnier than anything in the actual movie?

    That random bear was fucking awesomely hilarious! I'm still laughing.

    the COMEDIAN trailer is/was the best trailer ever

    by phanboi

    The movie itself was rather boring. Hope this isn't true for BEE MOVIE

  • Feb. 16, 2007, 5:04 a.m. CST

    oh man

    by BadMrWonka

    hilarious stuff...and phanboi, comedian was not supposed to be a non-stop comedy, it was a documentary about Seinfeld and the life of a comedian on the road...der!!

  • Feb. 16, 2007, 5:48 a.m. CST

    Has anyone considered the idea...

    by Elohim

    That this movie is a hoax? Maybe it's just an excuse to make wacky trailers. I mean come on... Jerry Seinfeld in an animated bee movie?

  • Feb. 16, 2007, 6:47 a.m. CST

    Yeah, these have been awesome trailers...

    by DanielKurland

    Bear jumping out of nowhere is great. I'd like to think this movie would be funny, but a movie about Seinfeld and all these other celebrities trying to make a CG movie would be even funnier I think.

  • Feb. 16, 2007, 6:50 a.m. CST

    Jerry Seinfeld isn't funny

    by ElsieZiiippp

    Never has been, never will be. If he's funny then why hasn't he been working for 9 years? The same applies to Ray Romano and Kevin James. You yanks really do churn out some dire sit-coms.

    Eddie Izzard

    by Anna Valerious

    Totally have enjoyed him in these...I'm not sure if he's in the final film, but I totally thought his talents were unused in "The Wild". Though the part with his character wearing a skirt from a popcorn box made me laugh. XD

  • Feb. 16, 2007, 6:58 a.m. CST

    Two dittoes.

    by Elohim

    Ditto to phanboi on The Comedian trailer. "In a land... in a time... in a land before time," and "a robot cop... a renegade robot cop," have become fixtures in the vocabulary of my circle of friends. Try it next time you're at the theater and the trailer for the next mid-budget cliche ridden action movie comes up. Also ditto to DanielKurland on a much funnier movie idea.

  • Feb. 16, 2007, 7:21 a.m. CST

    Seriously...Crap

    by DevilDog2007

    Let's Face it it looks dumb and it's not funny..Jerry Seindfeld couldn't be more overrated, stand-up (not funny), seinfeld (merely okay) and the second supposed funnier trailer for be movie has one thing funny about it Speilberg who actually was funny in his bit part in Goldmember...thank goodness it's just a teaser and there's a huge cast outside of him..

    Why Seinfeld hasn't been working for 9 years?

    by Mirrorball Man

    It's simple Elsie, Jerry Seinfeld hasn't been working in the last nine years because he can. He's a millionaire.

    You know what......?

    by PhantomSpazzz

    There’s just something about grown men dressed up in giant oversized silly costumes that cracks me up. Those Jimmy Dean commercials with the giant sun in the office and with his family are hilarious. These trailers remind me of those. Unfortunately I think that the movie should be based on these men in costumes rather than it being an animated film. Do we really need yet another CG adventure with celebrity voices? DAMNIT!!! I so wish this was the live action mess we keep seeing in the trailers. THAT would be wall-to-wall funny. GRRRRR it would be genius.

    Well, the first one wasn't funny at all...

    by Sulis

    And the only funny thing about the second one was that they managed to completely waste an appearance by Steven Speilberg. So I suppose that does make it even funnier. It just doesn't get much worse than this. At least Uwe Boll knows he's making a crap movie.

  • Feb. 16, 2007, 10 a.m. CST

    Pretty damn funny

    by isispop

    I for one am really lookin forward to Seinfeld's slant on this format. I'll bet the gags/funnies will keep comin and have a totally different dialogue in these movies than what we've seen before. I hope anyway. The trailers seem really original to me.

    Jerry Seinfeld IS funny

    by Norman Bates

    I'm tired of people thinking his show was some sort of fluke! It has been named the funniest sitcom ever for a fucking reason. Like because Jerry hasn't worked in nearly a decade means he's not funny?? Or maybe it's because he already owns 32 Porsche's and doesn't need a 33rd.

  • Feb. 16, 2007, 11:10 a.m. CST

    Aside from the bear, I didn't like it.

    Here is the reason that I dislike seinfeld and

    by emeraldboy

    Larry Saunders. No matter How many times I watched these shows and I did. i didnt laugh once why? I dont find them remotely funny. I hate the way comics, especially british and writers. Say if you dont find this funny, there is something wrong with you. people look at you funny if you say, i dont find bilko funny. Seriously, in the UK they revere scripts by silvers and Hiken as comedy gold. I have watched bilko, many times and It just doesnt make me laugh. Same goes for The office and ricky gervaise, bar last sunday at the bafats. if someone was to ask me what makes me laugh, two of the funniest things i have ever heard are woody allen mousse story and Bob Woodward as the driving instructor. I have even seen Curb your enthusiasm and I am left constantly wondering what the fuss is about. Watching the moment when Dudley moore corpses during the garbo sketch is comedy gold. But derek and clive is for me a turn off. Keeping up appearances is simply one of the greatest things to behold. And i love fr ted too. Victoria Woods finest hours were Acorn Antiques and the trolley sketch but one of the funniest things I have ever seen is the sketch with Julie Walters as the deaf, hunched over, octogenerian, bring a couple some soup. I still cant see it without cracking up. Alternative comics in the bow down to the late sir spike without having any idea of the fact that he was mad. British comics try to get the bbc to show the all of the q series, but it was unbroadcastable.

  • Feb. 16, 2007, 12:42 p.m. CST

    by emeraldboy

    Letterman was as result Jerry saying get your ass on Letterman right now. Therefore the whole apology was contrived. I for one was suspicious when Seinfeld who was dressed up like a businessman said I was upset and he is upset. Very odd.

    Seinfeld is not an actor

    by Ted Brautigan

    I'm sorry, but if you've played one role in your whole life and that character is named Jerry Seinfeld, you are not an actor. Seinfeld is a comedian. A damn good one at that. I've had more laughing fits watching reruns of that show than I can count. I'll give this a chance fully baked at a matinee at least. Peace

    by RKDN Del Sol

    I'm dissapointed in the cgi, and am frankly getting burned out on cgi cartoon critter movies. Id rather see a 'spinal tap' style movie about these guys making the movie we saw in the first two trailers. The physical comedy in both releases was pretty funny stuff. Groucho Marx would have loved this movie. Too bad it was just a publicity stunt promo.

I imagine they are the type who found the Blockbuster "mouse" commercial during the Super Bowl the end-all-beat-all funniest thing ever. Well, fuck you! I'm not feeling very pc tonight.

    that show never tried to be emotional, or have 'serious issues' that the characters went through... it was just fucking funny. None of this George is addicted to drugs how can we help him, Newman has cancer, Kramer's dad passed away and we're all sad bulltwat, just fucking jokes (really good ones at that)

    Sienfeld can be as poor an actor as he wants, and Sienfeld will still be brilliant as a motherfucker, because David and Sienfeld got the JEW blood in'em. I know, man, I've been there, Jew's know how to do it right. We take care of our own, too. I agree with what "RKDN Del Sol" said, man, that mockumentary idea is inspired, and CGI is total bullshit.

I think that's hilarious. Thank'ee kindly to emeraldboy and anchorite for the larfs...intended or not.<p> Oh yeah, this looks mildly funny so far.

    "Seinfeld" was funny the first 4 years of it's run. Never really got into CYE. "The Office" is one of the funniest things on TV. "Everybody Loves Raymond"? Don't get it. Just FTR.

  • Feb. 17, 2007, 12:24 p.m. CST

    Seinfeld still "Bee" funny!

    by morGoth

    So there ya go HootDad...humor IS subjective. Since you think "Seinfeld" was funny but not CYE (the guy who wrote Seinfeld, of course) it's got to be the situation of the "Seinfeld" comedy. Ain't life, particularly the comedic aspect, funny? Nyuk, nyuk... <p> Hola cutest m'lad!! That's amazing as me an' the morGette's (at least morGette#1) ate there last Sunday afternoon too! We were on our way back from NYMoot II (check in at the Club for the details) and just had to check out Lowery's famous roasted Rappahannock oysters since they're in season. Didja check out the talking myna bird? Not as funny as Jerry Seinfeld but a hoot nonetheless. And yes, the Middle Peninsula is treating me quite well these days...say "Hullo!" to Edgar Cayce for me willya {[:^)

    It's not so much that I don't think it's funny as I never really got into it. Now then, Larry David on "Fridays"? THAT was funny! "I'm SORRY Mr. Doody! I didn't now it was YOU Mr. Doody! YES Mr. Doody! Whatever you SAY Mr. Doody!"

    by performingmonkey

    Seinfeld was great because of the whole cast, you have to include Jerry in that, without him it wouldn't have been good. Yes Jason, Julia and Michael were better actors but you need Jerry's sarcastic reactions for everything to gel. If you watch it, a lot of the time the big laughs are on Jerry's reactions. And yes, this trailer will be funnier than the whole movie.

    by BizarroJerry

    I find 'Feld to be damn funny. If you don't, it's OK. This isn't a competition. First of all, Jerry has worked in the past nine years. I saw his stand-up show in Vegas last spring and he was hilarious. And he filled the theater for two shows. As for why Jerry hasn't worked in a movie or on TV for nine years? Because he didn't want to and he doesn't need to. You think TV producers don't want him on TV because he isn't funny? Wha? His last job was one of the most popular sitcoms ever. They'll give him whatever he wants!

Derick and Clive is some funny (and dark) stuff. <p>Keeping up Fucking appearances is on of the most dire comedies ever put on British TV. Don't tell me you love 'Are you being served' too? Well my mad Irish friend, it won't be long until you are thrown into the Looney bin so I'd take the pleasure now in shouting - "I'm freeee!" <p>p.s for the record the late, great Spike was funny before he went mad as well you know!

    A reponse to talkbacker with no name.....

    by emeraldboy

    You said I had no sense of humour. I dont know where you are from dude. But during 1980-1990s, I was lucky enough to see all the major uk stand up acts when they came to dublin. I love Have i got news for you. I never missed an epsiode of the clive anderson or either Whose line is it anyway. I have seen all the audience with...shows, Including the one with al murray, which is one funniest things i have seen in recent times. Spitting image was my favourite show growing up. I was a huge fan of dermot Morgan before he did father ted. I never missed an episode of Scrap Saturday. I even saw acts that you have never heard which were very good and very er bad. If you think Keeping up appearances is bad then you have never seen Rte's Attempt at comedy. Dreadful, dreadful stuff. Recently RTE has gotten better, with podge and Rodge and the Panel is very good. Blizzard of odd was excellent but it got cancelled. The host of that Colin Murphy is now regular on the panel. Andrew Maxwell is the star of that. I like comedy. speaking of comedy there is an excellent series on the BBC Called connections and last week it was the offices turn. Northern Irish humour grates, but folks on the hill is very topical and sean Crummy is as great an impressionist as you can find. So to say i dont have a sense of humour is not true. I did mention Woody allen and bob newhart and shelly berman. Have you seen victoria wood's a seen on tv. Acorn antiques is gold. Especially Mrs overall. That is one of the greatest comedy creations of all time.
