Pretty funny little battle
28 March 2004 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Elmer Fudd decides to go on a small camping trip for the fourth of July and takes lots of fireworks with him to celebrate. As he starts to set them off he ends up bothering an ant hill - and then throws them at the ants for fun. However the bugs are organised and mobilise an army to repel Fudd.

Elmer Fudd is more of a supporting player than a leading man, so as the film starts it was a bit of a worry. Despite this worry the film actually managed to be quite funny and fast moving. The battle between Fudd and the ants has lots of routines you'll recognise and it pretty much uses every `stick of dynamite' gag you'll have seen. It moves pretty fast and that is part of it's appeal - even if one scene doesn't work that well, it's only a matter of seconds before the next one comes along.

Fudd is OK but he struggled a little at times with the weight of carrying the film. The ants do reasonably well but they don't have that much of a character and, even worse it's really difficult to understand what they are saying at times.

Overall this film feels like it needs a big name in the cast to really raise it a bit, but the minor players do well and still produce a fun little cartoon.
