The plot matures handsomely; the characters neatly converge and combust; the gags pay off with emotional resonance.

Full of adventure, spectacle, light romance, and the kind of suspense that doesn't require an unpredictable outcome to make your spine tingle.

What A Bug's Life demonstrates is that when it comes to bugs, the most fun ones to hang out with hang exclusively with the gang at Pixar.

A Bug's Life, like Toy Story, develops protagonists we can root for, and places them in the midst of a fast-moving, energetic adventure.

More than anything, it just looks incredible. It's impossible not to be utterly blown away by Pixar's animation.
