I'm afraid so: a documentary, in 3D, about... toads.

Specifically, the South American cane toad, transported to Australia in 1935 in an effort to combat the beetles that were munching through sugar cane crops. Unfortunately, the toads weren't content with a single task, and started spreading faster than an online rumour. An army of travelling dustbins could not swallow down more food, and Australians have been stumped ever since to halt their march. The tenacity and adaptability of the creatures are remarkable: if they were better-looking they'd have it made.
