Epic fail
7 August 2011 | by See all my reviews

This has got to be one of the worst cartoons of all time. Even though it was produced in the 1990's when independent films produced with computer animation were not between barely and not at all like Pixar and DreamWorks, it still sucks.

This whole mess of a CGI cartoon film is so awful that the only age group that could possibly like it would be little children who can't tell a knock-off from a blockbuster hit. The character designs are completely crappy, there seem to be at least only a couple pieces of music (played over and over at parts mind you) and the geckos look more like Kermit the Frog was turned into a lizard.

In one scene, the caterpillar eating a leaf is actually the caterpillar moving its mouth while a corner of the leaf is suspended from the ground! The animation is so crappy that it makes a VeggieTales tape seem like Toy Story.

I purposely watched it after I saw the DVD at my local library, and knew from looking at the cover that it is a ripoff of A Bug's Life. If you want a movie about bugs, get A Bug's Life or Antz, and not this piece of junk!
