"The Ant Bully" tells a witty and heartwarming story about a 10-year-old boy who embarks on a remarkable journey. New in town, friendless and tormented by a neighborhood bully, young Lucas Nickle has been taking out his frustration on the innocent ant hill in his yard. But one day the ants retaliate.

    Could have been more clever if it wasn't for any corny dialogue and a slightly lacking storyline, but it does stand out with decent animation and witty humor.
