‘The Nut Job’ Preview: Crime Pays Peanuts

Published 1 year ago by

AD BLOCK must be DISABLED to view preview trailer. 

The Nut Job is the pun-heavy animated feature from The Weinstein Company and Red Rover / ToonBox Entertainment that stars Will Arnett (Arrested Development) as Surly, a shifty squirrel who inadvertently ruins the winter food supply for all the animals in his parkland home, and schemes to steal it back from a local nut store. Of course, the store is heavily guarded and “The Nut Jub” doesn’t go as smoothly as planned.

Featuring stars like Gabriel Iglesias (Magic Mike), Katherine Heigl (Grey’s Anatomy), Brendan Fraser (The Mummy), Stephen Lang (Avatar), Maya Rudolph (Up All Night) and Liam Neeson (Taken) all voicing cartoon animals and/or humanoids, the movie certainly has enough star power behind it to prevent the average onlooker from noticing that this is NOT a product of one of the top-tier animation houses like Pixar or Dreamworks.

  1. this actually looks good..

  2. I liked it better the first time when it was called Over the Hedge.

    • and kids care about that?

  3. Fun for the kids…..Hell I’m in my fifties and I got some good laugh out of the preview. I’ll wait for it to come on Dish rather than a show hall, but it looks pretty funny. I just hope they haven’t done like so many used to do…..Put all the funny parts in the trailer and left very little funny for the movie….I hate it when they do that…
