The Nut Job Movie Review (by a 7 Year Old Fan) & Giveaway

If you’re looking for a movie review of The Nut Job, who better to ask then someone the movie is targeted towards, a 7 year old boy?

Here are my son’s thoughts immediately after seeing a preview of The Nut Job this past weekend:

Well, you heard it from him: was it his favorite film? No.

Did he thoroughly enjoy it? Yes.

Was it the funniest movie he’d ever seen? No.

Did he think it had a great story? Yes.

I’ll admit, there weren’t as many ‘laugh out loud’ moments for me in the film (lucky for those seeing #TheNutJob with me!) and I do think the story was a little more intricate than your typical animated film.

Actually, the funniest moment for me was when I got to listen in on a mom blogger hangout with the star voices of the film, Katherine Heigl and Will Arnett, both parents themselves.

When Will was asked if his kids knew he was ‘doing voices’, he responded with, “Sure, they’ve heard me talk…especially the word ‘NO’, they’ve heard that one a lot”.

Good to know his sense of humor transcends genres…

Katherine gave a more predictable, but also an equally more touching answer when responding to why she took on this role: “I wanted to be a part of something I could share with my kids.”

If you decide The Nut Job is a movie you want to share with your kids, I want to help make that experience even more fun for you!
