THE NUT JOB is an animated film about a squirrel who is banished from a park for refusing to share his food.


There are a lot of scenes of comic action, with rival animals chasing each other over rooftops and through houses. Some of the human characters use guns to threaten the heroes.


There is some very mild bad language - a use of 'moron' and a few uses of 'butt.'

There are also some scenes in which a couple of animals pass wind in a comic manner.
