On behalf of "oppressed bugs everywhere," an inventive ant named Flik hires a troupe of warrior bugs to defend his bustling colony from a horde of freeloading grasshoppers led by the evil-minded Hopper.
niggas cant talk shit on a Bugs Life.
After dazzling everyone with its unforgettable debut that revolutionised the entire animation industry in the long run, Pixar Animation Studios' follow-up to their highly revered Toy Story is another wonderful piece of imagination, innovation & animation that once again presents a unique take on life but this time from a bug's point of view.
The story of A Bug's Life follows a misfit ant who thinks differently yet only ends up causing more trouble for his colony so when his latest escapade wastes away all the food ants had gathered to offer to the greedy grasshoppers, he decides to make up for it by finding & recruiting tough warrior bugs to save the entire colony from its oppressors.

IM GONNA FUCK A BUG
Simply a damn good film.
Wife and I have hit a bit of a roadblock regarding the Disney films. The classics (Pinocchio, Sleeping Beauty, Lion King, etc.) have been in wait mode in the Queue for some time now, so we figured it was time to transgress over to Pixar territory while we remain in waiting mode. Our animation re-awakening will ultimately end with the Studio Ghibli offerings.
Of course everything started with Toy Story, and yet I feel A Bug's Life is fitting choice to get the ball rolling with Pixar. It is a somewhat forgotten piece of work compared to their subsequent offerings. It doesn't necessarily have a bad reputation, but it is seen as more of a…
When Kurosawa made Seven Samurai in 1954, reports indicate he envisioned a better, brighter future in which his film would be reimagined as one ant's quest to save his colony from a bullying gang of douche-bag grasshoppers. His vision, for the most part, was fulfilled. Clever one-liners, adorable ants and a grasshopper's gruesome death by devouring makes A Bug's Life lesser Pixar, but still a pretty fun film. It's purely an adventure story, not really interested in delving into the more existential, thematically interesting territory Pixar has explored since. Still though, without seeming too heavy-handed or narrow-minded, it promotes the classical American ideal of individualism and self-improvement. This is a really solid film, but I just didn't fall in love with it like I wished I had.
This Disney Pixar 1998 bug infested offering gets little love and is almost completely overshadowed by the more successful Pixar roller-coaster of classics. Although it is not as worthy of the acclaim of it’s big brothers and sisters in the Pixar family it’s certainly an entertaining entry in their catalogue. It always surprises me how much I enjoy this film whenever I give it another watch. It’s a great story of a colony of ants as they struggle with oppression from a sinister hoard of grasshoppers who steal their food. The ants - led by the charismatic Flik - join forces with what he believes are a group of warrior bugs to reclaim back their freedom. It’s colourful and funny with a cast so vast there are too many quality characters to mention. There are so many wonderfully detailed characters all with equal merit and they all get the screen time they rightfully deserve. A great film.
"From way up here, you all look like little ants!"
Time heals all wounds, but the rift between Jeffrey Katzenberg and Disney may not apply. When Katzenberg, former chairman of Disney’s film division, left Disney after a bitter feud with CEO Michael Eisner, he formed DreamWorks with Steven Spielberg and David Geffen and soon began plotting his battle in animation with his former employer. So while Disney began working with Pixar on A Bug’s Life, he started working on Antz. And the great cinema battle of 1998 began. And while time may never heal the rift between Katzenberg and Disney, it certainly has shown us that Pixar knows how to make strong films and with their second film, they proved…
Francis Francis Francis Francis Francis!
I really feel this one has aged very well for me. I like it more each time I watch it, and that's going in already a fan. Such great stuff.
Watching on DVD so not the clearest, but kids love it.
This movie definitely still holds up! I had forgotten that Kevin Spacey was Hopper, and he really brings the movie together for me.
There's nothing to say about this that hasn't been said. Great cast, great story; it's delightful. Watch it with kids or grownups.
Acting (Voice): 7/10
- Very nostalgic for me as it was the first Pixar movie I watched as a kid
- The animation holds up really well
- Favourite character was easily PT Flea
- The least interesting character was actually Flik, just a generic underdog with not much depth
- The predictable plot is why this isn't one of Pixars best
- Love the idea of seeing the world through a bugs eyes, a small hill seeming like an island, empty boxes looking like buildings
Unfortunately, the animation is extremely crude (but look at Toy Story), but it does detract from the film. It's about bugs doing life. There's nothing to it. It's a good one, not Pixar's finest like my crazy ex girlfriend would say, but it's fun.
*saw with the Lady. She likes it, too.
I never knew what struggles bugs went through... changed my life
Seven samurai, but with bugs.
Every film that has ever been nominated for an Academy Award in any category. Enjoy!
Have not seen Three Amigos.
