“The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature” to push that bar ever descending. Never for a moment did I think the first film—which essentially co-picked Scrat’s determined quest for his oak seed in the “Ice Age” establishment for its own particular nourishment spurred, self-serving lead rat, Surly Squirrel — would meet all requirements for a continuation. Possibly just as a discipline for those youngsters who made their folks sit through its ancestor, however that is it. In any case, here is our second helping, one that is noisier, busier, crasser and more snicker free than the main trip.
In this way, here we go once more, with purple-tinted Surly and his hide bearing group of chipmunks, groundhogs, moles, woodchucks, beavers and mice spending their days in the curiously bland town of Oakton City, pigging out on an apparently perpetual reserve of shell-bearing vegetables in the storm cellar of the now-covered Nut Shop.
Looking downward on their pig like presence is young lady squirrel Andie (Katherine Heigl), who laments their absence of teach while demanding they ought to do what falls into place without any issues—to be specific, search for nourishment in Liberty Park appropriate over the road. She should be an ethical focus, however Andie is generally a grouch pester as she yakkity yak blahs about being a piece of a group and the estimation of diligent work—as it were, blunderingly infusing a de rigueur message into the procedures.
Surly and the others unite as they endeavor to undermine the groups decimating the property yet the leader enlists a creature control organization to keep them under control and his malicious plot to profit while imperiling lives by introducing flawed rides proceeds apace. Will our legends, for example, they are, battle back?
Furthermore, will one of them unintentionally fall into a state of unconsciousness and rouse a probably touching flashback about the estimation of fellowship? What’s more, will that mildew covered oldie “Destined to be Wild” turned into the go-to tune for each round of noisy and fierce pandemonium? Yes, yes and yes.
Too bad, resistance is essentially useless now, since “The Nut Job 3,” additionally coordinated by No. 2’s Carl Brunker, is now in pre-generation as per IMDb. I’m simply trusting the subtitle will be “Discharge the Cracker.”
