The first animated film of the year, “The Nut Job”, landed 3rd place in the US/Canada weekend box office. Grossing over $2o million, the film has been getting negative reviews, but may yet pass its budget of $42 million (I hope it doesn’t).
Have you seen this? If so, how was it? If not, do you plan on seeing this?
I’ll watch this when it comes to DVD, but I’m REALLY not looking forward to it!

I predict that it will make it’s budget back. It might make $300 million. I am gonna review it on my blog, so I will watch it. Looks dumb, and critics say it is dumb, so not looking forward to it.
If it makes $300 million, I’ll have to cry for the current state of humanity.
The only reason I gave this movie a second glance was because I love pugs. I most likely won’t see it but at least it looks better than some crap I’ve viewed.
Oh, not a dog person myself, so the pug doesn’t entice me, lol. What other films have you seen that look worse than this?
FoodFight!, Life’s a Jungle, just a couple examples.
I personally found “Foodfight!” to have a very interesting plot idea, yet it manages to go nowhere with it. That, tied in with the horrible animation and crude jokes made that movie extremely bad.

Surprisingly, I am super excited to see this. Not because it looks good. It certainly doesn’t look good. I want to see it on how bad it is. Besides, I’ll have to watch it someday.
Yeah, I feel we animation addicts feel we have a duty to watch every single animated film that is released, so we just put on a stiff upper lip and bear with it.
But if the film is so bad, it’s enjoyable, that helps a lot!
Saw it- HATED it. Just something to fill up a couple hours fr kids, but not even a mediocre movie…
Welcome to the site!
Well, your review of it is pretty much what I’m expecting of it, lol. Thanks for commenting!
