A Bug's Life came out around the same time as Antz, another kid's movie about insects.

But it wasn't the only insect movie with adult content hidden in material for children. It’s time to shine a light on the grown-up oriented moments in A Bug’s Life, which range from subtle jokes a kid wouldn't understand, to dirty humor, to outright worse-than-G violence and innuendo.
