About The Nut Job
A sullen squirrel learns the importance of teamwork and loyalty in this shoddy animated feature. In a city park in fictional Oakton, Surly (voiced by Will Arnett) is an aggressive and selfish squirrel who has absolutely no interest in helping his fellow animals. Everybody is gathering food to tide them over for the approaching long winter, and one day Surly has the brilliant idea of looting a nut stand at the edge of the park. Unfortunately for him, the others have also spotted it. But the stand is actually a cover for a criminal gang. When Surly clashes with the animals' leader (Liam Neeson), the ensuing fight destroys all the food and Surly is banished from the park. But then he stumbles upon a nut shop and forms a new plan.
