The Bottom Line
Pixar and Dreamworks tend to domiante the animated movie scene these days, so it's nice to see other studios offering up something a little different. The Nut Job is a classic heist story, but set in the adorable world of park squirrels and other city wildlife in their atempt to "rob" a store of it's, well, nuts. Who doesn't love a heist story? It's fun to root for the underdog, and The Nut Job boasts some pretty lovable characters.
Showcasing an all-star cast including Brendan Fraser, Liam Neeson, Katherine Heigl, Maya Rudolph (Turbo), Jeff Dunham and Gabriel Iglesias, The Nut Job will prove “Enormously Entertaining” for the whole family (Avi Offer, NYC Movie Guru)! Although The Nut Job isn't the most sophisticated animated film, it has a lot to offer for younger viewers and the all-star voice cast is a nice treat for parents and older kids.
The Blu-ray features some cute extras, our faves probably being the "dance-off" end credits and funnyman Will Arnett discussing the story in "The Great Nut Heist." All in all it's a great movie for the whole family.
