A Bug's Life

Corrected entry: This may seem like nitpicking, but the drunk mosquito that Flik approaches which drinks a round of blood is a male, when, in reality, only female mosquitos suck blood. Males actually consume flower nectar, like many other insects.

Correction: Really? Just because it looks like a male doesn't mean it's a male. Frances the Ladybug looks like a female, but he's male.

Corrected entry: Near the end of the movie, Hopper gets one of his antennae yanked off by one of the pill bugs. If you look at his head, though, as Flick is yelling for help, you can see both antennae are intact.

Correction: Tuck/Roll broke off only a part of the antennae not the whole thing as you can see when they are playing with it, it isn't that long.

Factual error: The size of the shadow of an object depends upon its distance from the light source, not the surface it falls upon. Lifting the cutout of the bird a few inches closer to the sun as they do would make absolutely no difference to the size of its shadow, yet it quadruples in size.
