Description

Every year the ant colony of a tiny island are forced to hand over their midsummer grain to a marauding band of grasshoppers, led by the evil Hopper (voiced by Kevin Spacey). Worker ant Flik (Dave Foley) sets off to get help from the big city, where he mistakes a troupe of circus bugs for fierce warriors. After being fired by their ringmaster, P.T. Flea (John Ratzenberger), the bugs accompany Flik back to his home, thinking that he is a talent scout. When all becomes clear, they are less than happy at the prospect of fighting off Hopper and his gang!

Synopsis
The computer animation crew at Pixar--the creators of TOY STORY--return with another feature rife with stunningly rendered worlds populated by cute critters you can't help but care about. The story is simple--an ant colony led by Flik (Dave Foley) seeks help from a flea circus and other insects in their struggles against the oppressive grasshopper bullies led by Hopper (Kevin Spacey). However, as with TOY STORY, there is as much for adults to enjoy here as there is for the kids. (In fact, the story is loosely based on Akira Kurosawa's classic SEVEN SAMURAI.) And don't miss the wonderful "outtakes" that roll with the closing credits!

Movie Critics
A.V. Club
"[T]he SEVEN SAMURAI-like story provides a solid framework for stunning animation and winning characters, including Dave Foley's nice work in the lead."
A.V. Club (27 May 2009, )
Box Office
"...Lasseter brilliantly exploits the material for both laughs and pathos, while pushing the technological parameters of computer animation even beyond the already impressive feat of TOY STORY..." -- 4 out of 5 stars
Wade Major (1 Jan 1999, p.53)
Entertainment Weekly
"...A hellzapoppin creature-feature jamboree..." -- Rating: B
Owen Gleiberman (15 Jan 1999, p.44)
Los Angeles Times
"...[A BUG'S LIFE has] an unfettered imagination....This footloose humor comes from both the writing and the direction..."
Kenneth Turan (20 Nov 1998, p.C1)
New York Times
"...A BUG'S LIFE makes jaunty, imaginative use of both extraordinary technology and bold storytelling possibilities within the insect world..."
Janet Maslin (25 Nov 1998, p.E1)
Sight and Sound
"...Tightly constructed....The script has fun playing with our common knowledge of insects..."
Leslie Felperin (1 Jan 1970, p.39-40)
Total Film
4 stars out of 5 -- "Offering colourful eye-candy for tots and in-jokes galore for adults, its clarity of purpose boils the Pixar template to near-abstract purity."
Simon Kinnear (1 Feb 2011, )
USA Today
"...Rowdier than a New Year's Eve party..."-- 4 out of 4 stars
Mike Clark (24 Dec 1998, p.4D)
