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.

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 …
