A Bugs Life (1998) is the second of Pixars movies and sadly its become slighty overlooked compared to the more popular ones like Toy Story and Wall-E.
The voice cast of this movie includes Dave Foley, Kevin Spacey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, David Hyde Pierce, Denis Leary and Hayden Panettiere.
As with all the Pixar movies A Bugs Life has a great story with an important message for the kids. Kevin Spacey delights in playing the villain while David Hyde Pierce steals most of the laughs.
Directors John Lasseter (Toy Story) and Andrew Stanton (Finding Nemo) do a great job mixing the bitter sweet character moments with sweet natured humour and a couple of exciting action sequences.
A Bugs Life has become the forgotten Pixar movie but thats not really fair because its a real gem. The animation looks great, the cast are having a ball and the story has a timeless quality about it.
