The Any Bully was very well recieved by my whole family. My 4 year old son loved it and my husband and I didn't mind watching it. It's a crowd pleaser. It teaches a couple lessons too, like don't be a bully, and why it is important to work as a team.

Fun and Delightful!
Shirley Priscilla Johnson | USA | 01/22/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"When we first sat down to view this movie I wasn't sure about it. How good could a movie be about a kid bullying ants; I was in for a wonderful surprise. We meet Lucas who is picked on by a bully himself and seems to take out his revenge on an ant community..why? Because he is bigger.
When the Wizard of the ant community comes up with a portion to shrink Lucas and it is decided he must learn how to live like an ant the fun begins. Lucas soon learns that working together can help you overcome no matter what size you are. It was just a really fun movie and one that my entire family enjoyed. I highly recommend it."
Believable characters, potty humour, and a message
Lee | Australia | 11/18/2006
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Some might complain that the lead wasn't likeable because he started out as a bitter kid who picked on ants, but I thought the pecking order shown in the beginning where Lucas did unto ants (and less obviously, his mum) as the bully did unto him was true to human, especially kid, nature. Maybe I'm a bad person but I recall that when the most popular kids teased me when I was younger, I'd take it out on kids who had even fewer friends than me. Teaming up with those kids and standing up to my original bullies might've been more productive, but my excuse is that this movie didn't exist to teach me that. Speaking of the message, I thought the lowbrow humour offset some of the preach factor that the message could've brought about. With jokes like that I didn't feel like it was written by a teacher, or at least not by a stuffy teacher but by the fun teacher who made gross jokes to win me over, then once he earned my attention, taught me something."
Entertaining, family-friendly movie

"My 4.5 year-old preschooler loves "The Ant Bully", and this is one of the few kid movies that I actually enjoy watching with her [we've watched it over 5 times now]. The animation is great, and the story too has a lot to recommend it. The story centers around a young boy, Lucas [Zach Tyler] who is constantly being bullied by an older and bigger neighborhood bully. Lucas in turn vents his anger and frustration on the ant colony in his yard. Typical of animated movies, the ants can 'talk' - there's Zoc [Nicolas Cage] a sort of ant wizard who experiments with a shrinking potion, his girlfriend Hova [Julia Roberts] who believes that "Peanut the Destroyer" aka Lucas is good at heart and that humans and ants can co-exist in peace. Lucas inevitably gets shrunk to ant size [well, a little smaller actually] and is sentenced by the Queen [Meryl Streep] to live and work in the ant colony, learning to 'become' an ant with the hope that Lucas will learn compassion. Over the course of the movie, Lucas learns that ants too have 'feelings' and that his actions of bullying the ants was not justified in any way - in fact, Lucas comes to form a real friendship with the ants.

A story with a positive message and wonderful animation, with lots of humor throughout - perfect for kids and adults alike. Highly recommended as a family movie."
