Ant Bully, The (2006, USA) C-88m. ** D: John A. Davis. Starring (the voices of) Julia Roberts, Nicholas Cage, Meryl Streep, Paul Giamatti, Zach Tyler, Regina King, Bruce Campbell, Lily Tomlin, Ricardo Montalban, John A. Davis. Ambitious, star-studded animation feature about a boy, who's constantly bullied and resorts to flooding ant hills. One day he is shrunk to ant size and must try to survive in an ant colony. Some good animation, but plot is not compelling enough, despite obvious educational value. Based on the book by John Nickle.
