'The Nut Job'

Sensitive viewers would notice several recurring features. First, the character Grayson repeatedly treats women in general as his own fan-club, saying things like, "woman!", "Chicks dig the tail," and "why haven't you asked me out yet?" and refers to his own "sweet bod." Second, the one female human's curves are first viewed from the floor up in a modest but very tight outfit. Third, language such as "heck," "I'm gonna kill you," "shaved our butts," and "thing-a-ma-boobie" were used as substitute expletives throughout the movie.

Most perplexing to us: an animated PSY dances with all the movie's characters to "Gangnam Style" during the final credits. This seemed disconnected from everything in the film and features the repeated lines (the only words in English) "hey sexy lady."

The Final Word: Kids' Summary

The Nut Job wasn't the best kids' movie in the theaters right now. It was just okay, and not in the same league as Disney's Frozen. All of us agreed, we'll tell our friends to wait until this comes out of DVD. In the end, what's done well in this film doesn't overcome its weaknesses.

Benjamin (12),Claudia (11), Olivia (10), and Luisa (7) Johnson live in New Jersey with their parents, Dru and Stephanie.
