At an annual pace, a huge colony of ants is forced to collect every piece of food that grows on their island for a group of menacing grasshoppers. But that all changes when a misfit inventor ant named Flik accidentally knocks over the offering pile thus forcing the grasshoppers' devious leader Hopper to force the ants to redo their gathering of food. Despite the fact that his friends don't believe him and desperate to help save the colony, Flik volunteers to go out into the world and search for a group of 'warrior' bugs. Instead, what he got was a talented group of circus performers. But when the grasshoppers return and take control of the island, Flik must prove himself a true hero before it's too late. Written by
The movie closely resembles the 1954 classic Seven Samurai (1954) by Akira Kurosawa. A story about a village under attack by bandits demanding food compensation. This goes on until the village decides to travel outside their area and hires samurai to defend the village. The classic was remade into a western in 1960 as The Magnificent Seven (1960) where they hire gunslingers to defend their home. The term is changed in this film to 'Warriors' of those they hire to help defend their home, which total seven as well. See more »

Additional faked goofs were added to the movie on December 18th, 1998. The original set of goofs had such a great reaction that Disney decided to add more for a "reward" to people that see the movie again. See more »
A Bugs Life is a great film that is not just for kids but for adults too. The story is set around a colony of ants and their struggle against the evil Grasshoppers who come back every year and steal their food ( A Mirror of the Magnifiscent seven). There is some wonderfull computer animation and the voices are great too. You will love it!! 8 out of 10
