A Bug's Life

1998, Pixar/Walt Disney

This is a generally solid, well-done animated film—a tad predictable on occasion, but still quite decent, and worthy of the Pixar name. That said, it's more than worthwhile seeing if only for one reason: the "outtakes" at the end featuring the animated characters as if they were actors. Whoever came up with that truly original idea deserves an Oscar. I've rarely laughed so hard; indeed, I had to watch them a few times because I had tears in my eyes and couldn't see what was going on.

Incidentally, this film gave rise to a massive feud between producers, the end result being the formation of DreamWorks, along with the competing film Antz.
