    Synopsis


    The Ant Bully
    A kid who hates ants finds himself living among the six-legged critters in this computer-animated comedy-adventure. Lucas Nickle (voice of Zach Tyler Eisen) is a ten-year-old boy whose family has just moved to a new town, and Lucas isn't enjoying it much -- he hasn't made any friends yet, his big sister ignores him, his parents (voices of Larry Miller and Cheri Oteri) are occupied with their upcoming vacation in Mexico, and his loving but slightly crazy grandmother (voice of Lily Tomlin) is convinced space aliens are casing out the neighborhood. To make matters worse, the local bully has found Lucas and is making his life miserable, so the boy looks for someone he can push around -- and he soon finds a large colony of ants in his yard. Lucas takes out his frustrations by stomping, drowning, and burying the bugs, little realizing the ants see him as a threat to their safety and aren't about take his attacks lying down. Zoc (voice of Nicolas Cage) is a "wizard ant" who creates a formula that shrinks Lucas to the size of an insect, and the tiny boy is brought before the leader of the Ant Council (voice of Ricardo Montalban) and the Queen of the Colony (voice of Meryl Streep) to answer for his crimes against the ants. Showing compassion, the queen sentences Lucas not to death, but to live among them and see how difficult their circumstances can be. Nurse Ant Hova (voice of Julia Roberts) is put in charge of looking after Lucas, and with the help of Scout Fugax (voice of Bruce Campbell) and Forager Kreela (voice of Regina King), Lucas gets an eye-opening picture of how the other half lives -- just in time for Lucas to help the ants in an all-out battle against Stan (voice of Paul Giamatti), a pest-control man brought in to get rid of the bugs. Produced by Tom Hanks, The Ant Bully was written and directed by John A. Davis, who handled the same chores on the film Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

      This is a great kids movie that adults can enjoy too! When I saw it in the store I was skeptical about buying it because I haven't heard of it before. My daughter loves the movie Antz and I wasn't sure if this movie would be a flop in comparison. Well, I'm glad I bought it because both my 4 year old daughter and I really enjoyed it and she has watched it several times since!

      A good choice but a bit too violent

      We were looking for another kids movie to add to our collection when I saw "Ant Bully". It is a good story, but it might be too scary for children under 4 or 5 years old. It is really meant for older children I think. Still. it is a good choice to buy and watch. It does have some good life learning points and it does end well.

      Although not as popular as most mainstream titles, my 3 kids ( ages 7,10,13) enjoyed it a lot. Really is a good family film.

      Not bad, it was a good movie for the kids. Not as funny as Hotel Transylvania. But still enjoyable for the adults.
