Becky and I took the kids to see Ant Bully on Saturday morning at the AMC Theater in Highlands Ranch. The MSN movie website at Ant Bully describes the movie as follows:
“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.”
Ant Bully reminded us too much of the movies Ants and A Bug’s Life with a little kid from Honey I Shrunk The Kids finding himself in the insect world to make it a bit different. Of course, all of these films were successful at the Box Office, so I’m sure that Ant Bully was a sure thing for Hollywood producers to get into production.
Becky and I were both bored with this film, having seen enough ants in cartoons over the years, along with a predictible storyline, but the kids really liked it. In fact, all of our kids thought it was a movie that you and your kids shouldn’t miss. So, don’t expect much as a parent, but the odds are pretty good that your kids will like it.
