Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average While the film isn't the worst of its kind, it might be one of the dullest of recent vintage.

USA Today Full Review
Below Average The animated tale is uneven, has undeveloped characters and resorts to bad jokes.

Washington Post Full Review
Average ...cleverness is in short supply in this animated feature.

NY Post Full Review
Above Average Animated features have become so formulized that the late-1950s style of "The Nut Job'' is very welcome

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 31 moviegoers:
CHILDREN: As expected the children enjoyed "The Nut Job" very much.
TEENS: We only collected one male review and he didn't care much for it.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The one male rated it "Above average." The one female loved it.
ADULTS: Only one of the four males truly enjoyed it. Another one rated it "average." The remaining two didn't care for it and rated it "below average." Forty-percent of the females loved it. Another twenty-percent rated it "above average." The remaining forty-percent only rated it "average," which is decent for an animated movie but it's clearly not a movie that all adults will really enjoy.
