This one is just a formulaic rehash of stuff we've seen and heard before. There's not much of a story here, and the characters are paper thin cutouts with the voices of bored celebs who wanted some extra milk money between films.
A kid gets shrunk by some ants who he blasted with a garden hose. You don't even see him get shrunk (wasn't this an animated film?); he just wakes up next to his giant underwear. The 21st Century society colony of ants decide to "teach him our ways," and the moral (whatever it is) of the film has been sloppily served up. If you hear a snoring noise, that's your kids who have nodded off by now from the blank-page scripting. You'll probably follow them in the next few minutes; this one is definitely a cure for insomniacs. If the dead-end story doesn't anesthetize you, the lame cultural one-liners will.
The baddie is ripped off directly from Over the Hedge, with all the trimmings: smoking, evil laughing, overweight etc. He wasn't funny in that movie; he's even worse here. Battles between the ants and the bad guy are CGI splashes of color and out of focus images. Why? Because there really isn't anything to see. Somebody's always following a long distance, with the same blurry effect, and for the same blurry reason.
Good to torment a disobedient child with, or to put a hyper one to sleep. But that's all.
