Spoiled by their upbringing with no idea what wild life is really like, four animals from New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four absconding penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar, among a bunch of merry lemurs
A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.
Boog, a domesticated 900lb. Grizzly bear finds himself stranded in the woods 3 days before Open Season. Forced to rely on Elliot, a fast-talking mule deer, the two form an unlikely friendship and must quickly rally other forest animals if they are to form a rag-tag army against the hunters.
In an anthill with millions of inhabitants, Z 4195 is a worker ant. Feeling insignificant in a conformity system, he accidentally meets beautiful Princess Bala, who has a similar problem on the other end of the social scale. In order to meet her again, Z switches sides with his soldier friend Weaver - only to become a hero in the course of events. By this he unwillingly crosses the sinister plans of ambitious General Mandible (Bala's fiancé, by the way), who wants to divide the ant society into a superior, strong race (soldiers) and an inferior, to-be-eliminated race (the workers). But Z and Bala, both unaware of the dangerous situation, try to leave the oppressive system by heading for Insectopia, a place where food paves the streets. Written by

Z would have been in no immediate danger from the water. Ants can survive for days, even weeks, under water. See more »
Let me ask you something - what made you come to the bar that night?
I guess I was looking for a little trouble.
Well, trouble's my middle name. Actually, my middle name is Marion, but I don't want you spreading that around.

Antz, while appearing to be a cartoon, really is a movie geared towards adults rather than children. Strangely enough, it is a story more out of the genre of Orwell or "Brave New World" than the Saturday morning cartoons for children. This is Woody Allen vs. The System. The laughs I heard from the audience were from adults; children were silent or asking explanations from nearby adults.
