Who doesn’t love a movie about talking bugs?! Clearly, everyone was into these ant-centered epics in the late ‘90s. Both films follow the journey of an ant to save his colony from destruction from some villainous presence. Oh, and they capture the eye of a female ant along the way! There are some fundamental differences, though, between the two films. Antz is a Woody Allen film (he even voices the main character!) and gets a little intense for a kids film. A Bug’s Life, on the other hand, is a Disney-Pixar film with a bit of a lighter feel and bunch of different types of fun bugs. The clear winner here was A Bug’s Life, which netted way more money, an Oscar nomination, and areas of Disneyland and Disney World centered around the movie!
