( Rating: 4 Star Rating)

Be prepared for one squirrelly adventure in the action-packed comedy, The Nut Job, starring Surly, a mischievous squirrel on a mission to prove himself. Read Kidzworlds review of the Blu-ray + DVD and watch an exclusive clip!

Surly 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 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.

EXCLUSIVE Blu-ray Bonus Features

  • DELETED SCENES - Check out Surly, Grayson and the gang in scenes removed from the final version of the movie.
  • STORYBOARDS - Watch key scenes from the film brought to life from the original sketches.
  • THE GREAT NUT HEIST - Will Arnett, the voice of Surly the squirrel, discusses the great caper story at the heart of the film.
  • DANCE-OFF END CREDITS - Surly joins his furry friends and a very special guest for this show-stopping number.

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
