Performers, Cast and Crew:
Rolling Stone - 10/29/1998
"...ANTZ is refreshingly naughty and nice..."
Sight and Sound - 12/01/1998
"...Very special visual effects....The two most impressive achievements of ANTZ are its rendering of character and multiplicity..."
Entertainment Weekly - 02/12/1999
"...Grown-up....Subversion slips by swiftly at 24 cels per second..." -- Rating: A-
Premiere - 10/01/1998
"...Dazzling computer animation and inspired casting..."
New York Times - 10/02/1998
"...Its shrewd computer animators have great fun seeing the world from an ant's-eye point of view....Mr. Allen sounds wonderfully invigorated by the chance to play a guy with all those legs..."
Box Office - 11/01/1998
"...A wonderfully entertaining animated comedy....The actors' voices fit very nicely with the ants they play, and the animation is highly imaginative..."
A restless worker ant changes roles with a soldier ant in order to get the girl, who just happens to be a princess. The animation is breathtaking in this story of true love amid a totalitarian state.

- Woody Allen and Sylvester Stallone play ant friends in the film; the last time they were on film together (and that time, appearing as themselves, not as cartoon characters) was when Stallone played a thug harassing Woody on the subway in BANANAS.
