When we first sat down to view this movie I wasn't sure about it. How good could a movie be about a kid bullying ants; I was in for a wonderful surprise. We meet Lucas who is picked on by a bully himself and seems to take out his revenge on an ant community..why? Because he is bigger.

When the Wizard of the ant community comes up with a portion to shrink Lucas and it is decided he must learn how to live like an ant the fun begins. Lucas soon learns that working together can help you overcome no matter what size you are. It was just a really fun movie and one that my entire family enjoyed. I highly recommend it.

My 4.5 year-old preschooler loves "The Ant Bully", and this is one of the few kid movies that I actually enjoy watching with her [we've watched it over 5 times now]. The animation is great, and the story too has a lot to recommend it. The story centers around a young boy, Lucas [Zach Tyler] who is constantly being bullied by an older and bigger neighborhood bully. Lucas in turn vents his anger and frustration on the ant colony in his yard. Typical of animated movies, the ants can 'talk' - there's Zoc [Nicolas Cage] a sort of ant wizard who experiments with a shrinking potion, his girlfriend Hova [Julia Roberts] who believes that "Peanut the Destroyer" aka Lucas is good at heart and that humans and ants can co-exist in peace. Lucas inevitably gets shrunk to ant size [well, a little smaller actually] and is sentenced by the Queen [Meryl Streep] to live and work in the ant colony, learning to 'become' an ant with the hope that Lucas will learn compassion. Over the course of the movie, Lucas learns that ants too have 'feelings' and that his actions of bullying the ants was not justified in any way - in fact, Lucas comes to form a real friendship with the ants.

A story with a positive message and wonderful animation, with lots of humor throughout - perfect for kids and adults alike. Highly recommended as a family movie.

I did not think this movie was going to be that enjoyable. But then when I popped it in to my DVD player, I was suprisingly shocked. I loved every minute of this movie. I thought this movie will be like "ANTZ", but instead it had a different story line. It was funny how Peanut a human boy was transformed in to a little sized ant and had to live an everyday life like ants. I thought that was something different then any other animated cartoon movies. PLus, this movie gave me second thoughts about never demolishing the ant colonies. My mom even loved this movie, so I bet any age will enjoy this movie.

The idea has been used before but it's still fun. My 4 year-old daughter loves it and it keeps the attention of my 1 year-old. Cinematography was pretty creative, especially when they were all hang gliding with leaves in the house. Overall pretty entertaining.

Really a good movie, teaches kids about bullying and a way they can help deal with it or not do it. It teaches kids that they can belong to a group and make things better. Our 8 year old loved it and we enjoyed watching it as well. Acceptance is a great point and that you can stand up for yourself and others as well. Big thumbs up!

Fantastic. The Ant Bully is just a fantastic animated film on multiple levels. The animation is superb, the characters are wonderfully memorable, the cast of voice actors boasts many a big name, and the story is as educational as it is entertaining. Adults should have already learned the message of this film, but they can still enjoy The Ant Bully just as much as the kids. Frankly, I had never even heard of this movie until a couple of weeks ago, and that's a real shame because this is an animated film that should have been talked about just as much as Cars, Happy Feet, etc.

Like Lucas (Zach Tyler), the little boy in this film, I used to squirt water on ants and destroy their little ant hills - I'm not proud of that, but I was just a dumb kid. Lucas has yet to learn that tormenting other creatures is bad. A local bully keeps picking on him because he's little, so he turns around and picks on ants because he is bigger than they are. For their part, the ants in his front yard have had enough of the horrible beast they call "Destroyer," and thanks to a young wizard named Zoc (Nicolas Cage), they have a way to fight back. Using a potion, they shrink Lucas down to their size and carry him back to the colony. Many of the ants want to kill and eat their nemesis, but the benevolent Queen (Meryl Streep) decrees that he is to remain in the colony and, through training, learn to become an ant himself. Zoc's girlfriend Hova (Julia Roberts) eagerly volunteers to train him, which threatens to drive a wedge between her and Zoc.

Lucas makes for a stubborn student, rejecting the teamwork inherent in ant society; he doesn't need anybody's help, thank you very much. Not having any human friends, he is even reluctant to accept the friendship that ants such as Hova offer him.

It's a good movie. It has a good message and it certainly made my little brother laugh. I laughed too. I think the ante Nicholas Cage voiced was very fun. As a stage actor, I like looking at his character. It gave it a bit of depth and made the movie worth watching to me. I bought this for my brother as he loves 'ante movies' like this, Bug's Life and Antz. He liked this one as much. I actually ended up buying a used copy and it was PERFECT! Didn't even know it was used. Only difference was how it was shipped. Still two day prime shipping, but it wasn't triple wrapped in plastic. Fun movie, a few potty and nudity jokes, so if you don't like that, beware. They aren't that bad, just when the boy changes into an ante and back to human, he grows too small, then too big for his clothes. So they are just being true to life. The grandmother makes a joke about it, but otherwise it's ignored. There there is some jokes about peeing and more body jokes like that. So if you are really against that, this movie might not be exactly what you want, but if you don't mind, go for it. It is a fun movies.
