The Ant Bully is a sore disappointment to anyone hoping for a turnaround to the recent downward quality spiral of animated films. In fact, this movie may represent a new nadir for 3D animation.

The Ant Bully is never less than colorful and high-energy. But it's hard to shake the feeling that we've all gone up this hill before.

The Ant Bully, in trying to match Antz or A Bug's Life, just digs itself into a big hole.

This generic exercise in computer-generated animation may provide passable entertainment for very young children, but adults will be less than enchanted by its preachiness, talkiness and Communist Party-line political views.

The film's heavyhanded lessons turn it from a fun romp through a cartoonish insect world to a predictable and preachy snoozefest.

Burdened by a distinctly "been there, done that" vibe that I can't imagine will generate much excitement, even with the kiddies.

If your kids bully you into seeing this movie, do yourself a favor and check it out in 3D. The movie gets extra points when seen through those glasses.
