A Bug's Life? Brought to you by QA Films

My 3 year old son has been watching A Bug's Life recently, and he seems fascinated by it, and rightly so, it's an awesome film.

For those that haven't seen A Bug's Life, it's about an ant called Flik who goes away to try and save his colony from evil invaders (Grasshoppers), I won't spoil it for you by revealing the outcome of the film, but it's a thoroughly enjoyable film!

It got me thinking this morning, about a different type of bug, the bug that we're all aware of, one that is a bug in software...

How can this film relate to testing?

Well, I like to think of myself (and other Testers) as Flik, someone who is trying to prevent bugs (Grasshoppers) from spoiling software (Flik's colony), whilst I don't find a circus, I do have a team of testers who I trust to help prevent the bugs from making it to live, and to help improve processes for the future to help prevent bugs before they're even coded.

What other films can you think of that could be applied to software testing?  What about Independence Day and fighting off the aliens (bugs)... Although I would liken that to a project that looks doomed that brings in a team to help firefight the bugs.
