A scheming raccoon fools a mismatched family of forest creatures into helping him repay a debt of food, by invading the new suburban sprawl that popped up while they were hibernating...and learns a lesson about family himself.

The role of Mommo, Lucas's grandmother, was originally voiced by Shirley MacLaine. During production, the role was recast with Lily Tomlin, and some Mommo shots had to be reanimated once Mommo's dialogue was re-recorded. Similarly, some of the shots with Fugax had to reanimated when Alan Cumming was replaced with Bruce Campbell. See more »

I thought the animation was excellent. The story was apropos for the intended audience--mostly families. I'm not sure why there are comments from other viewers complaining about hidden meanings--as best as I can tell, that says more about the viewer than it does about the movie. Ants behaved in the movie like we imagine ants to behave when personified. It is unreasonable to attach any hidden meaning to it. The message was simple and straightforward. It is your basic good vs. evil, little guy vs. bully. It is a great family film. I recommend it for any child, and any adult who wants to forget about life for a while and think like a child.
