It’s time to go nuts for this action-packed comedy featuring the all-star talents of Will Arnett, Brendan Fraser, Gabriel Iglesias, Jeff Dunham, Liam Neeson, Maya Rudolph and Katherine Heigl. Surly (Arnett) is a mischievous squirrel with a mission: to find the tastiest nuts for winter. When he discovers a whole store filled with his favorite food, he plans a heist of nutrageous proportions. But the place turns out to be owned by ruthless bank robbers, so it’s up to Surly and his furry friends to stop the nearby bank heist and save the town. The fur is sure to fly in this hilarious adventure that critics are calling “Funny and witty! For kids of all ages!” (Jeffrey Lyons, Lyons Den Radio, WCBS)

Critics Consensus: Hampered by an unlikable central character and source material stretched too thin to cover its brief running time, The Nut Job will provoke an allergic reaction in all but the least demanding moviegoers.

Disappointing animal comedy features insults, fart jokes.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that although The Nut Job is being marketed to preschool-aged kids, there are some jump-worthy moments and some gun violence that might make it too scary for the youngest viewers. Human characters use guns, and there are several scenes in which it seems like a character will die or be killed. Language includes insults like "moron," "nothing," and "stupid"; parents sensitive to scatological humor should know there are several burp and fart jokes. On the bright side, there's a positive message about what it means to be part of a community.
