The Nut Job in Theaters #TheNutJob


It’s going to be a “nutty” month!

Don’t miss the animated action-comedy, The Nut Job IN THEATERS JANUARY 17. It’s sure to be a film the whole family will love!

The Nut Job - OneSheet

Surly, a mischievous squirrel and his rat friend, Buddy get banished from the park and are forced to live in the big city. They can’t seem to find enough food, but one day they happen to stumble across the one thing that may help them survive the winter — Maury’s Nut Store.

A hilarious adventure begins as they plan a nut store heist of outrageous proportions, and unwittingly find themselves caught up in an elaborate struggle to save their lives and park community.

WILL ARNETT, BRENDAN FRASER with LIAM NEESON and KATHERINE HEIGL are supplying their voices to the characters of the film.

The whole concept of squirrels on a caper to bust nuts out of a nut shop just “cracks” me up. I can only imagine how many laughs and silly hijinks will be involved.

To get into the spirit of the movie, I made a super yummy trail mix, and I’m pretty sure that if Surly and Buddy got wind of it, they’d pull a nut heist on me too!

Trail mix recipe

Nutty Fruit Crunch

10 oz. mixed nuts (peanuts, almonds, Brazil nuts, cashews, hazelnuts and pecans)
1 cup vanilla yogurt raisins
1 1/2 cups dried mixed berries (cranberries, cherries, blueberries)
4 cups caramel corn
2 cups pretzel twists

Mix all the ingredients together and have fun snacking!

    This release is now available on Netflix and we watched it last month as a family. It was very cute and taught lessons about accepting others despite differences and working together.
