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.
Barry B. Benson, a bee just graduated from college, is disillusioned at his lone career choice: making honey. On a special trip outside the hive, Barry's life is saved by Vanessa, a florist in New York City. As their relationship blossoms, he discovers humans actually eat honey, and subsequently decides to sue them.
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 »
I guess you prefer old Blood and Guts, huh? His idea of a romantic date is two seats at a public execution. Boy, you sure chose the right husband.
For your information, the general and I are deeply, deeply in... in... engaged.

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.
