"Antz" was good. Z is the main character. Z didn't want to be part of the crowd. At the bar Z danced with Princess Bala. A guy told Z about Insectopia where he can do whatever he wants. He switched places with his friend Weaver, so he can go to Insectopia. There was a war with the Termites, and all the other ants died except Z. Everybody was cheering for Z.
The best part of the movie was when Z kidnapped Princess Bala. They took a boat across the lake, and they found Insectopia.
General Mandible sent someone to find Princess Bala and Z to bring them back to the colony to kill Z. He also wants to kill the whole colony.
That is all, I can't tell the end because I want you to see it.

My brother's friend has an iguana. He wanted a snake for his birthday, but his mother said no. He's had the iguana for three months. Since he is an iguana, the family calls him "Iggy." Iggy's back is prickly and he sheds once a month. He is very friendly. Iguanas like to be warm.
I think it would be fun to own one.
