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

Shares a similar plot with the Pixar film A Bug's Life (1998), which was released the same year. In both stories, a common worker ant, who's known for his unorthodox thinking, sparks a chain of events that affect his entire colony, and lands him a romance with the Princess. 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 »
Come on, Z. Help us build a bigger, stronger colony, and for crying out loud, try to be happy about it.
Sure, why not?
Why should I be unhappy being a piece of construction equipment?

The Z in Antz is slightly crooked, and its also the name of the title character. See more »
Fabulous performances by an all star cast with fabulous animation.
Antz is a charming romantic comedy that is better appreciated by adults than children. In fact, there are some scenes that may be a bit too violent or gruesome for small children.
All of the actors perform brilliantly with an excellent script even though the plot is a bit trite. All the actors excel in their roles even the usually bland Stallone and Lopez who are more animated in this film than in most of their other roles.
I found the move to be appealing visually. Apart from some of the backgrounds that seem to be hand painted, the animation is superb.
