Movie Info

A group of super-intelligent, gigantic rainforest bugs go undercover as the Applegates, an average suburban family, in this satirical fantasy. Originally intending to destroy mankind with a nuclear explosion and rule a Utopian, bug-inhabited Earth, the insects instead find themselves increasingly absorbed by the temptations of American consumer society.

    Really dull and ridiculous of five Brazilian beetles disguise themselves as the average American family.
