While not a terribly bad movie, it is not a good one either.

Was surprised when I saw this only had 14 reviews and not that great of ones, so I felt the need to give my two cents. Why? Because I never get to go see regular adult movies at the movie theater. I always see kids releases with my kid. I was not sure about this one but I was pleasantly surprised when it was over that I liked it as much as I did.

There is a lot of characters, the focus is not just on the one squirrel. The story sounds simple but gets complicated. It is very colorful and there are laughable moments. The pug is an obvious favorite, Precious is her name. Very cute and fun with no upsetting death and a nice ending. I would recommend this for sure to at least watch by renting. I personally will be buying this one when it comes out.

Nut Job is an adorable story about a squirrel named Surly who is trying to stock up on nuts for the winter. A little girl squirrel named Andie tries to get him to share his stash because there is a shortage, but through a series of unfortunate events, the animals loose everything they've collected and Surly is banished by the head raccoon. In the city, he discovers that stores have stocked up on his favorite food and he plans a heist to set himself up for the winter. Of course when Andie finds out she wants to tag along. But a group of sinister humans have a bigger heist in the works and it's up to the forest animals to save the whole town. They also have to overcome the head raccoon who turns out to be the real culprit behind the lost food supply.

The Nut Job is a cute movie with colorful characters and a lot of funny one-liners. I have four kids ranging in age from two to thirteen, and they all enjoyed this film. The squirrels were great but our favorite character was the Precious the Pug. There are no strong moral lessons but it's still a fun movie and very entertaining.

Surley (Will Arnett) is a hard working libertarian prepper squirrel. He comes across a big score with a wagon that vends roasted nuts. Andie (Katherine Heigl), the cute liberal squirrel wants Surley to share his find with the group, that haven't been able to save up enough food for the winter in Liberty Park of Oakton.

Through a series of circumstances, the park stash gets destroyed and Surley is blamed. The head coon (Liam Neeson) banishes Surley to the city where our resourceful libertarian discovers a horde of nuts which Andie butts in and wants him to share. He discovers the head coon wants to control the food supply so he can control the masses...or at least the 47% ers. Grayson (Brendan Fraser) is the puffed chest phoney conservative hero who takes credit for the work done by the libertarian. But only by working together can they get rid of the coon in power.

While they are planning an Ocean's Eleven heist of the nuts, the humans are planning a bank robbery.

Great film for the kids so they can tell their teacher they are "getting a nut". Also, stealing is good. Let me know how this works out for you.

Watch the extra short film on the DVD version. My kids watched the film -- no problems there, not a cinematic masterpiece, but entertaining enough -- and then went on to explore the short film in the Extra portion of the DVD. The short is way over the top for small children. Violence aside, I heard the words "damn it, my god, and you ba----d!" None of which were in the movie and none of which are appropriate for my 8, 7, and 4-year old to hear. If you buy the DVD, just be careful.

I saw this movie with my 4 year old. I was surprised to see such bad reviews ok here. The movie is no Toy Story or anything, but it's still a cute film! My son laughed through most of the film and he thought the animals were hilarious.

I don't see it as a film he will watch over and over, but it was definitely a fun film for him. I chuckled a few times myself.
