Critic Reviews for The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature
The Nut Job 2 goes full throttle on the timely stuff, resulting in a (slightly) more thoughtful and entertaining outing.
The jokes are thin, the computer animation is wanting and the inane plot is a series of set pieces strung together.
The character design is ugly, and the story is tired, with corny song cues and easy stereotypes.
Noisier, busier, crasser and more laugh-free than the first outing.
Audience Reviews for The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature
The wacky adventures of Surly Squirrel and his friends continue in the animated family comedy The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature. After the abandoned nut store is destroyed Surly and his fellow park animals are forced to return to the park and forage for food, but are soon kicked out when the mayor tears it down to build an amusement park. The voice work and the animation are really well-done, creating fun and interesting characters. And the soundtrack features some catchy songs that bring a lot of energy to the film. However, the script is formulaic and the villains are all one-dimensional stereotypes. Still, The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature is an entertaining film that delivers plenty of laughs.
In contrast, The Nut Job actually tries to be something that ended up being a critical failure in the first place. That's how it deserves that score it earns today. The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature, on the other hand, is begging itself to be better than its predecessor and also begging you to love it so that it can earn more money at the box office. If you get fooled by these things, it seems as if you're not ready to become the biggest moviegoer yet.
