This amusing Pixar film came out at the same time with Antz, another computer animation about an outsider ant who becomes a hero of his colony, this time by resisting lazy but vicious grasshoppers. There’s the usual array of colourful characters and visual gags, but on the whole this is not one of Pixar’s finest.
