Unfortunately 'A Bugs Life' is a PIXAR movie that is always compared to the greats (Toy Story 1-3; Up; Monsters Inc.). Alone this movie is great. It has all the elements that children and adults love.It is very funny and creative with attention to fine details.

Kid friendly re-hash of The Three Amigos that's nowhere near as witty or inventive as Toy Story, but it didn't offend me.

This is one of the more overlooked Pixar films for a variety of reasons. The Kurosawa allusions likely go right over the heads of most viewers. It was released in the same year as another (but totally different) ant-themed animated film, "Antz." It's a little darker and sprawling than other Pixar films. That said, it's an ambitious and still entertaining film, that I think creates one of the more fascinating and complete worlds of the Pixar universe. Certainly better than Cars.

Adults won't like it as much as kids

An excellent cast in a movie that is excellent for children, but a little boring for adults.

The computer animation is very well done, down to the smallest detail. Even though the characters are designed like typical cartoons, they are designed well.

For adults, the plot is a bit weak, but it works for children. This is a movie targeted to children

The script itself is well written and the entire cast is very believable in their roles.

This movie is typical Disney, despite the fact that it is not filled with the music Disney movies is known for. This movie doesn't need music however, the story works without songs sung by the characters.

Children will enjoy the colorful graphics and the jokes. Adults will enjoy the lessons the movie presents.

Another great Pixar title

I thought that Antz was really good because of the number of good actors, but this rival film from Walt Disney Pictures and Pixar did better business. Basically ants pick food for greedy grasshoppers, and disaster happens when Flik (Dave Foley) is responsible for ruining the offering. The grasshopper leader, Hopper (Kevin Spacey) with his gang give them till the end of summer to try and gather food again. Flik decides to leave the island, with Princess Atta's (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss) permission, to find warrior bugs to fight the grasshoppers, and to his disbelief, what he brings back is a bunch of circus clowns. These are Slim (David Hyde Pierce) the stick insect, Heimlich (Joe Ranft) the fat German caterpillar, Francis (Denis Leary) the ladybird, Manny (Jonathan Harris) the magician bug wi...
