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

In the original development, the ants had six limbs, some of them wore clothes, gloves, and lightbulbs appeared whenever they had an idea. None of these made it into the finished film. Also, General Mandible looked more visibly sinister in early drafts, but they toned it down for the final result. See more »
Z and Barbatus are standing side by side in formation. The platoon then executes a right face and Barbatus encourages Z to move up putting him side by side with Barbatus again. While this is convenient for conversation, it wouldn't have worked because whomever had been in front of Barbatus in formation would now be in that spot. See more »
Don't you get it? I was slumming it. I chose you because you were the most pathetic little bug in the joint.
You know, I was going to let you become a part of my most erotic fantasies, but now you can just write it off.

Maybe I was a victim of high expectations, but after all I had heard about it, I was disappointed in Antz. The animation was interesting and enjoyable. But you have to be a fan of Woody Allen to enjoy the story. And I am not. I didn't realize the plot was so similar to the typical Woody Allen movie - watching him deal with his neuroses.
Hear that A Bug's Life is much better, looking forward to seeing it.
