In this movie, Surly and his friends all live in the Nut Factory eating nuts all day long, but then an accident causes the Nut Factory to explode. The animals are not sure what to do. One of them keeps saying they should go back to the park where they originally lived, but then the Mayor of the town wants to tear down the park and replace it with a dangerous amusement park. The rest of the film involves the animals trying to stop the evil Mayor and his psychotic daughter.
This movie has tons of crazy and really funny action scenes. I laughed a lot while watching it. Surly and Precious are my favorite characters. It's a fun movie, and I highly recommend it.
Life isn’t easy for a squirrel. Everything is out to get them: cars, bikes, gum, and humans. They had the easy life in the closed down nut shop, but good things don’t last forever. Sadly, it exploded and the easy life is now gone for Surly and his friends. Surly’s love interest, Andie, wants him to go back to the park and live as a wild animal again. However, the greedy mayor wants to remove Liberty Park since it’s not generating any income.
Instead of going back to the park, Surly and his friends decide to steal their meals from humans. Their life of crime is short lived after discovering that it’s not worth the hassle. Aside from stealing, there is some alcohol consumption and a spoiled rotten child being given her way when she throws a temper tantrum. Some gross humor is also shown when it comes to dogs and vomit.
The comedy begins when the ground breaks in the park to construct a new amusement park. The animals team up to stop the construction team from making any progress. The mayor brings in reinforcements and things get serious when Precious the dog gets taken by the mayor’s daughter. The daughter’s dog loves Precious but the feelings are not mutual.
During Precious’ rescue, Buddy gets injured and the animals rally together once again. With the renewed comradery, the animals vow to take down the newly opened amusement park. The animal exterminators come in full force and capture everyone but Surly. Does he run and take the easy way out or does he save the park and his friends? I’ll leave the rest as a mystery as you should see this movie firsthand.
My kids and I enjoyed this movie and recommend picking it up.
Jackie Chan voices a martial arts mouse whose hands are "weapons of mouse destruction" Yes, it was that type of humor. Fun for adults too. Chan had a line that made me think of the Niemöller quote.
