Pleasant little movie.

A very elaborate yet direct effort by Phil Hay and Matt Manfredi. Instantly absorbing and interesting throughout, "Bug" is one of those really great films that get lost due to poor promotion or current trends. It has a very good cast (no A-list stars) and never drags, while the ending is very fitting - a rare feature for modern comedies.

My favorite movie of all time. really really hard to find, but so funny and makes you think about your actions(without having to be graphic or violent).

A boy squishes a bug and sets off a chain of events and comes full circle to have his actions directly affect his life. It's non-linear "Altman-esque" approach make this an unusual film, but is good enough that I was never bored. It has that, 'waiting for it to get started' feeling and you realize half-way in that it is what it is. Something for those people who say, "it's all been done -- nothing's original anymore."

i got this movie for free in a two pack with clerks 2, and im glad i did. there isnt much of a basic story to this movie. its more like several tiny stories that are all intertwined. it is shot very well and was enjoyable to watch. i highly recommend it.

This movie is sensational. Its such a simple idea and yet I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. I didn't even channel surf between ad breaks.
I never knew I'd watch the Hallmark channel, but hey, this was a great movie. I wished it was a series I could watch every week.
I've always pondered on about the theory that things happen for a reason. Chain reactions.Six degrees of separation.
I like this movie alot. It was captivating, clear, amusing and thought provoking.

I didn't know what to expect from this film. I'd never heard of it when I ran across it, and it sounded like a quirky, whimsical little movie that was worth a glance.
It is, and it's excellent. The premise is that the movie follows the seemingly random but connected chain of events that takes place after a little boy is admonished by a passerby for stomping a cockroach. Call it the "cockroach effect." Though the chain of events includes some rather dark things, the mood is mostly light, and the entire ensemble cast puts in really good, understated, often hilarious performances. The highlight for me was a scene involving two actors doing a reading from the teleplay of "The Boy in the Bubble" on a cable-access tv show. Good stuff. Micheal Hitchcock, who I remember best as the owner of the Weimeraner in "Best In Show" is especially good in a supporting role, as is John Carrol Lynch as the de facto lead character, if you can truly say this movie has a lead.
This is ultimately a very humanist film. It's rare to find positive, hopeful subject matter handled so deftly. Usually, stuff like this is Disney-ized. This is a good little movie.

[list][*]Interesting story involving the chain reaction of events and character interactions after the death of a bug on the street.
[*]Pretty good writing but could have tied things better to create a stronger theme.
[*]Funny at times.
[*][b]Recommendation[/b]: Rent for an interesting little film. It's probably not one that you'd buy though.
