Simon J. Smith,
This is the story of a ten-year-old boy named Lucas Nickle, who has just moved to a new neighborhood, has no friends, and is the target for the local bully and his gang.

Because he cannot fight back, he takes out his anger on an anthill in his front yard; He kicks it, stomps it, squirts it with his water gun, and floods it with a hose.

This is Hawaii. We went there last summer. It's got volcanoes and hula dancers and Don Ho and surfboards. And I caught a fish. And these are the pyramids. And these are the pyramids. Well, not the real pyramids. The real ones are lots bigger. Mommo says aliens built them. She's my grandma.

Yeah, that's my family.

This is a wonderful movie. It has something for everyone in the family.
In the children's movie "The Ant Bully," released in August 2006, we are provided with an in-depth look into the world of being bullied. People do not always think about the effect of their actions on others. Just because they are small does not mean that they should not be valued. Everything that we say has a chain reaction. And no matter how small something is, whether it is the smallest person in the neighborhood or a tiny little ant, it does matter how we treat them. We should respect everyone and everything as we would want to be respected. The movie "The Ant Bully" makes this message very clear.
Lucas (Zach Tyler), a ten year old boy, takes out his anger on a colony of ants after becoming the target of the neighborhood bully. The ants retaliate by using a shirking potion made by the ant wizard Zoc (Nicolas Cage) to bring Lucas down to size. Lucas is then brought to face the ant queen (Meryl Streep), who sentences him to learn the ants' ways. Lucas is befriended by Hova (Julia Roberts), Zoc's girlfriend, who helps him along the way. Hova is also join in this task by fellow ants Kreela (Regina King) and Fugax (Bruce Campbell). These four are constantly running into obstacles, but always manage to find their way out by working together.
After seeing this movie with my four year old daughter, I felt a little uneasy. The movie overall was very entertaining. One thing I could have dealt with out is the fact that Lucas is naked in part of the movie. No, they did not show anything, but they left very little to the imagination. One thing that did make the movie great was the fact that it taught a lesson. I feel that it shows that bullying is wrong and will not be tolerated, and that even if someone is small they can accomplish anything by working together. I would recommend this movie to everyone, adults and children.
