Antz is a computer animated film starring the voices of Woody Allen, Sylvester Stallone and Christopher Walken in the guise of various members of an ant society. One of the features of the animation is that you can recognise the features of the performers morphed into the form of their ant characters.

Warning: Wikipedia contains spoilers.

The story, revolving around an ant called Zee (Woody Allen), is about a loser who falls in love with a princess, becomes a soldier (or at least, gets swept up in a battle), an outlaw and finally saves the ant colony from destruction.

Although its cinematic release was somewhat overshadowed by Disney's A Bug's Life[?] (also a computer animated film based on the adventures of a misfit ant who falls for the princess of the colony...), Antz is definitly worth watching. It's not as child-centric as A Bug's Life - for example, in this film, the ants are a muted orange brown rather than bright blue, and the world is simarly less vividly coloured - but is equally entertaining, albeit on a slightly more cerebral level.
