•Squirrels can run as fast as 20mph.

•Flying squirrels don’t actually fly – they glide.

•Squirrels only mate twice a year.

•Squirrels are born blind.

•Chipmunks are actually small squirrels with stripes.

•The squirrel is the Native American symbol for preparation, trust, and thriftiness.

The Nut Job

Synopsis: Surly (Arnett) 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 Blu-ray 3D Combo Pack and Blu-ray Combo Pack include a Blu-ray, DVD and DIGITAL HD with UltraViolet.

What we thought:

In a nutshell (Get it? lol), the whole family loved it! We shared lots of laughter throughout the movie as well as lots of popcorn. In The Nut Job, you will see how important food is to squirrels just as it is to us humans too. The Nut Job is a movie for the whole family and it will keep you laughing and watching til the very end. Don’t forget to view the deleted scenes — those are hilarious!
