** "How about a suicide pact?"
** Barry refers to bees as "honey slaves to the white man," which causes an African-American lawyer in the courtroom to move his chair away from his Caucasian cohorts.

** The purpose of pollination is reproduction, not maintenance. When the bees in the film stop pollinating, all existing plants died and are revived when the bees sprinkle pollen on them. While no pollination would affect plants over the course of several generations, it could not kill existing plants nor would pollination revive dead plants.

* PlayingGamesAtWork: The director of the Honex Industries can be seen playing a hexagon-shaped TabletopGames/{{Solitaire}} at his computer during Barry's motivational speech at the end. Justified in that at the time, the honey production was shut off and the bees had nothing to do.

* FantasticAesop: The first acts seem to be preaching an aesop against human exploitation of animals, but then flips the message around in the ending act. It's okay to eat honey as long as it comes from sapient bees that give you permission.

* ArtisticLicenseBiology: The aforementioned InsectGenderBender, a bee stinging a man and surviving by replacing the stinger with a plastic sword, and the whole bit about pollination; the moment the bees stop pollinating, every plant dies despite the fact that pollination would only stop new flowers from being made, and plants would live as normal (especially obvious with the trees that would still live for years), and the pollen being reintroduced bringing them all back to life. Also, it is impossible to pollinate most flowers with pollen from other species.
** Male mosquitoes don't drink blood (and females only drink it so they can get the protein to make eggs)
** Male bees don't sting. The stinger is a modified ovipositor that only female worker bees have.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: The whole "bees can't fly" thing. That only applies to fixed, airplane style flight. If you take into account that they flap their wings, well, then [[CaptainObvious bees can fly]].

** Just because the bees stop, there's still the hummingbirds/butterflies/etc to pollinate as well. Obviously it wouldn't help, but bees don't have sole dibs on pollination. In fact, many species don't even need animals at all, relying on the wind alone for pollination, and would be perfectly fine and ordinary.
