Quotes

Flik: Welcome to our show! You know, we've been doing this act for over three hundred million years. And with bugs making up more than 80% of the animal world, we're the biggest cast of them all. Still, you guys just don't seem to see us so that's why we gave you those special bug eyes. Go ahead, put them on. Neat, huh? So, on with the show.

Great special effects, great theater they show this in!!!
27 February 2007 | by (Long Beach, California) – See all my reviews

Voices of Dave Foley, Kevin Spacey, Cheech Marin and French Stewart.

This is a really entertaining 3-D movie. Where some other 3-D attractions are better in the movie portion, this one is good for many reasons. The plot for this is Flik is showing us, the humans, why bugs are our friends and not just pests. The movie itself I's give a 7 out of 10, but it gets an extra one for the great theater it's shown in resembling the inside of an ant hill. The wait for the ride is also in an ant hill with popular show tunes song by bugs. It's a really entertaining show and it's rather "cute." It can be seen at Florida's Animal Kingdom or Anaheim's California Adventure.

My rating: *** out of ****. 11 mins.
