We rate J. Lo’s performance in ”Antz”
PREMISE In this computer-animated feature, Lopez has a supporting role as a tunnel-digging ant and friend to Z (Woody Allen), the colony’s unlikely hero.
LOVE INTEREST Soldier-turned-worker ant Sylvester Stallone
OVERBEARING FATHER FIGURE Totalitarian ant leader General Mandible (Gene Hackman)
HER CHARACTER’S ANCESTRY Well, she’s an ant, but she has a Mexican-sounding name, Azteca
MEMORABLE MOMENT Lopez’ role is relatively minor, though she does swing a mean pickax.
WHAT EW SAID ”Finally, Antz is about the relief felt by star actors freed from the constraints of their physical selves and the egos that go with them.”
