The Ant Bully

Director: John A. Davis
Year: 2006
Stars: Julia Roberts, Nicolas Cage, Zach Tyler

I didn't know much about this before watching it, other than that it was a fairly, short recent animated movie. To be honest, when it was on I wasn't really in the mood for it, so this may well have affected my view of it.

The plot follows a boy (Lucas) who terrorises ants because he has no friends, and this makes him feel better. However, the ants create a potion which turns Lucas into the same size as them, meaning he has to live with the ant colony, learning how to get along with them. Of course, he learns a number of life lessons along the way.

Not quite as sickening as it sounds, but still American sweet and not really with anything new to add. Certainly not the best film of the month (or year)...

Rating: 2.5 out of 5

About Me

My photo
I live in Bristol with my husband Dan (who I married in July 2007), my son Joe (born 2012) and daughter Jess (born 2015). I work at UWE (the University of the West of England) in Bristol as a Research and Open Access Librarian. I'm orginally from Exeter, so moving back to Bristol is a bit like coming home - especially as I studied for my undergraduate degree here (also at UWE). I love travelling and movies, although I get to do a lot less of both since the birth of our children. Although we have still managed to fit in holidays to the Isles of Scilly, Chamonix and a summer in California since Joe was born.
