'The Bee Movie' produced by DreamWorks Animation and distributed by Paramount Pictures has given us viewers a great message about the ethical treatment of bees through its unique plot.

Directed by Simon J. Smith and Steve Hickner, the film has a very talented voice cast comprising of actors like Jerry Seinfeld, Matthew Broderick, Renée Zellweger, Barry Levinson, Ray Liotta, Patrick Warburton, John Goodman, Kathy Bates, Chris Rock, Larry King, and many more who have given life to the film.

The film by Simon J Smith and Steve Hickner follows the story of a newly graduated bee named Barry.

B. Benson. His positive outlook in life is completely destroyed when he finds out that the honey produced by hives like Honex Industries where he had recently been recruited in is harvested and used by humans who treat them poorly.

He eventually succeeds in his propaganda against the mistreatment of bees and becomes one of the pollen jocks along with his friends.

Even though it has its humorous moments and fantastic animation and concept, it is a harsh portrayal of the procedure that bees are put through by the smokers in honey farms to produce honey.

The 'Bee Movie,' further talks about how important bees are for pollination and the sustenance of the world's flowers other than just for producing honey harvested by humans.

Jerry Seinfeld, however, has said that he won't be making a 'Bee Movie' sequel.

Here is a list of some of the best quotes and sayings that made the movie a popular choice amongst fans.
