A Bug's Life Movie Review Summary

Actors: Dave Foley, Kevin Spacey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Phyllis Diller

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of A Bug's Life

In this fun animated film from the creators of Toy Story, we meet Flik, an ant trying to help the colony. It's spring again, and that means that the grasshoppers are coming to collest the ant's food. Flik then accidently destroys the food, and this doesn't make the grasshoppers happy. They give the ants a second chance, though, and now they must collect food by autumn. Flik then gets an idea to get warriors, and fight them. Instead of getting warriors, Flik gets circus performers. Now, Flik must create an army to fight the grasshoppers. The computer animation is amazing, and this film is really funny. Ex-Seinfeld star, Louis-Dreyfus is the Princess of the ants, while Kevin Spacey is the leader of the grasshoppers. Unlike, that other computer-animated insect film, Antz, this film is fun to watch.
