A Bug's Life

"Excellent"

A Bug's Life Review


Disney/Pixar's remake of, ironically, Three Amigos!, is redone with bugs and animated via computer. When meanie grasshoppers (headed by Kevin Spacey) threaten the anthill, well-intentioned clutz Flik (Dave Foley) goes on a crusade to find help. He ends up recruiting a bunch of circus performers instead of real heroes to help the cause. Wacky hijinks ensue.

It's a good story (though not as deep as Antz), has genuinely funny characters (much funnier than Antz), and is certainly good for the whole family (unlike Antz altogether). Be sure to check out the DVD, which features both sets of "outtakes" which roll during the credits--hilarious!

Special Edition DVD features a second disc with more Pixar crap on it than you can possibly imagine. The Collector's Edition DVD is the same as the Special Edition but features a video transfer directly from the digital source (instead of being transferred from the film).
