"The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature" (Guardian 11/08/17)

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature **
Dir: Cal Brunker. Animation with the voices of: Will Arnett, Maya Rudolph, Jackie Chan, Katherine Heigl. 91 mins. Cert: U

The summer of inessential animation continues with this very middling sequel to 2014’s semi-forgotten squirrel-based timekiller. Displaying admirable chutzpah, replacement director Cal Brunker barrels into the franchise, reintroducing Will Arnett’s smartmouthed Surly as if the first movie had become some billion-dollar landmark in popular culture. Restless, detailed design aids his cause, but there’s only so far anybody can sustain the kind of rote narrative – involving the redevelopment of Surly’s parkland terrain – which needs to be hustled through before accompanying adults investigate the availability of refunds. Their younger charges shouldn’t object, though future generations may look unfavourably upon us for enabling sequels to The Nut Job, and not Ratatouille or Over the Hedge.

The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature opens today in cinemas nationwide.

  1. The Nut Job 2 is wonderful! With los movies, the sequel is never as good as the original, but with this movie, they are both awesome films. There is never a boring part or unnecessary scene. It keeps you wanting more and gets you really attached about the characters' lives. The background music really helps keep the story going and makes the chase scenes more suspenseful since there are no silent moments.
