A Bug's Life (Movies)

"Does he have A Bug's Life?"
"No. But he does have Taps."

A Bug's Life (1998) was the sweet and silly computer-animated story of a bug who joins a circus, which is then hired to defeat the evil grasshoppers. It was Pixar's second huge hit, and helped solidify the company's reputation as a maker of quality animation. Taps (1981) is a live action tale of military cadets who are forced to defend their academy from evil developers. As Batando's kid is over the age of seven, A Bug's Life is probably less likely than Taps to feature in his collection, even with the puns. (Bugging or tapping the phone, get it??)
