Bartlebee, McBroom, Flutterby, Cosmo and friends are back for more adventures. Through learning that honesty is the best policy, teamwork and realizing that it’s okay to ask for help, the team successfully solves four different problems that come its way! This movie is a good representation of how friendships come in all shapes and sizes—or species of bug in this case!
For the most part, Cosmo is the troublemaker of the story—in one situation he bites off more than he can chew with his delivery business. In another, he pretends to be an artist making sculptures when in reality it’s Mantis that is the true mastermind. McBroom the dung beetle is a bit clumsy, but he keeps their home tidy by cleaning up after everyone. Bartlebee makes sure that everyone has enough to eat by keeping honey in his jars.
The underlying moral of this movie is that it’s important to be honest with your work—to make sure that when you offer a service what you’re expecting in return is fair. Cosmo learns that you shouldn’t take credit for another’s work. Not only was it unfair to Mantis that he took the credit for his sculptures, but it was also unfair to everyone who tried to learn from him. These principles are seen numerous times throughout the film but are demonstrated in ways that are funny and practical.
While the stories do flow well and make sense, they are very simplistic. There isn’t much character development and even the lessons demonstrated only scratch the surface of their importance in the real world. Even though Buzzed 3 is an animated movie, the camerawork is blurry at some points.
Buzzed 3 is a funny animated movie that is sure to entertain young children. Its morals are easy to see, and the plot is simple to follow. This movie is great for families looking to talk about important life lessons and facilitate family discussions in a lighthearted way.
