The Nut Job is an animated film from 2014 that features an all-star cast of voice actors including Will Arnett, Brendan Fraser, and Liam Neeson. The story is set in the fictional town of Oakton and follows a mischievous squirrel named Surly (Will Arnett), who is banished from his park home after he accidentally destroys their food supply for the winter. With nowhere else to go, Surly sets his sights on the local nut store, which he sees as the perfect opportunity to stockpile enough food for the winter season.

However, Surly's plan is complicated by his encounter with a group of fellow animals who are also in need of food. Initially, Surly is resistant to working with the group, especially after he discovers that their leader is a mouse named Raccoon (Liam Neeson) who is looking out for his own interests. But as they work together to plan the perfect heist, Surly develops a newfound sense of teamwork and learns to put the needs of the group above his own desires.

Along the way, Surly meets Andie (Katherine Heigl), a female squirrel who is part of a group of park animals that are still trying to find a way to survive the winter. Despite their initial disagreements, Andie and Surly find themselves working together to foil the evil plans of both the humans who own the nut store, and the scheming Raccoon.

The Nut Job is a film that is expertly crafted with stunning animation, exciting action scenes, and a fantastic voice cast that brings the characters to life. Surly, in particular, is an entertaining character to watch as he goes from being a snarky loner, to a team player who truly cares about the well-being of his newfound friends.

One of the strengths of The Nut Job is its ability to appeal to both children and adults. The humor is silly and childish at times, but there are also plenty of references and jokes that will go over the heads of young viewers. The film also has a surprising amount of depth, as it explores themes of teamwork, loyalty, and sacrifice.

Overall, The Nut Job is an enjoyable family film that is sure to entertain viewers of all ages. With its likable characters, exciting heists, and important life lessons, this movie is a must-see for anyone looking for a fun and heartwarming adventure.

The Nut Job is a 2014 animated movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 26 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.7 and a MetaScore of 37.
