Quotes

Flik: Welcome to our show! You know, we've been doing this act for over three hundred million years. And with bugs making up more than 80% of the animal world, we're the biggest cast of them all. Still, you guys just don't seem to see us so that's why we gave you those special bug eyes. Go ahead, put them on. Neat, huh? So, on with the show.

Highly amusing and more than just 3D.
22 May 1999 | by ymrysonSee all my reviews

"It's Tough to Be a Bug" is a very funny look at how bugs deal with the world. The only problem with this attraction is the audience.
