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.

Simon J. Smith,
In an anthill with millions of inhabitants, Z 4195 is a worker ant. Feeling insignificant in a conformity system, he accidentally meets beautiful Princess Bala, who has a similar problem on the other end of the social scale. In order to meet her again, Z switches sides with his soldier friend Weaver - only to become a hero in the course of events. By this he unwillingly crosses the sinister plans of ambitious General Mandible (Bala's fiancé, by the way), who wants to divide the ant society into a superior, strong race (soldiers) and an inferior, to-be-eliminated race (the workers). But Z and Bala, both unaware of the dangerous situation, try to leave the oppressive system by heading for Insectopia, a place where food paves the streets.Written by

Water changes its scale at various times during the movie. Sometimes, it features surface tension consistent with the scale of the ants, then at others acts like water on the scale of humans (ie. the flood scene). The directors acknowledge this discrepancy. See more »
[Azteca strikes him with dirt just as he's about to dig, trying to be "insignificant, but with attitude]
Oh, sorry, Z. I didn't see you there.
That's great, Azteca. It's working already. I'm so meaningless I'm invisible.
Now you're getting it. It's not about you. It's about us - the team - *this*.
[gestures at the whole of the conlony]
Um... a giant hole in the ground?

The Z in Antz is slightly crooked, and its also the name of the title character. See more »
Non-English international versions omit the credit sequence in the beginning, featuring names of the voice actors through the magnifying glass. This is valid for cinema, video and TV versions. The European DVD contains this sequence, when the English audio track is selected; however, if any other language is selected, the credit sequence also gets skipped on the DVD. See more »
This is not a kids movie. I hesitate to even call it a family movie. I think that an adult would get more out of the movie. It's about the structure of society and it also discusses the subject of war and it's quite a lot of death in the movie. It also explores individualism. The voice work is great but what else can you expect from Hollywood legends like Christopher Walken and Sylvester Stallone. The stand out being the great Gene Hackman as the villain. It is not a movie you should show your kid they will either be bored or confused. Many of the jokes will also go over the children's heads. But that doesn't mean this is a bad movie. It a very good movie smart and well-written. Chris Weitz, Paul Weitz and Todd Alcott has done a good job and Antz is well-made.But don't bother to show this movie to your kids and if your kids doesn't speak English or can't read subtitles really don't bother to showing this movie to your kids half of the fun comes from the celebrity voices.
