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

When the leaf template of the bird is placed in the sun's path to make a shadow on the ground, the direction of the bird is placed in the sky, different to the way the shadow is on the ground. See more »
It's a bug-eat-bug world out there, princess. One of those Circle of Life kind of things. Now let me tell you how things are supposed to work: The sun grows the food, the ants pick the food, the grasshoppers eat the food...
And the birds eat the grasshoppers. Hey, like the one that nearly ate you, you remember? You remem- Oh, you shoulda seen it, okay?

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 Bug's Life" is like a favorite candy bar -- it's chock-full of great little bits that add up to something really tasty.
The story couldn't have been better; it's clever, has "heart" (emotion), and every character has a nice "arc" (a growth or change). By comparison, the only characters in "Toy Story" to have an "arc" are Buzz, who learns to love being a toy, and Woody, who overcomes his resentment of Buzz. There are tons of laughs and cute moments in "A Bug's Life". All of the actors turn in great voice work, and the animation, both the motion and detail, is superb.
This serious movie buff doesn't throw around "10"s lightly, but this movie certainly deserves the "10" I gave it.
