The Nut Job, featuring  WILL ARNETT, BRENDAN FRASER with LIAM NEESON and KATHERINE HEIGL, opens IN THEATERS JANUARY 17.  We’re very excited to see this new animated movie as a family!  It looks funny but also has lots of action sequence and more subtle humor for the adults too :) We can’t wait to see MORE of it!

There’s a whole lot of nut-eating critters in the city and when Surly, a spunky little squirrel, goes to sneak some free nuts from a nut cart in the park…and gets himself banished from said park…well, things go haywire and mayhem ensues.  Panicked about their food source, the critters find a food source (Maury’s Nut Store) that’s armed against critters like themselves and, much like the Italian Job movie, there’s a very elaborate (and hilarious) plot to rid the Maury’s of their nuts and save the critters of the city.

To get MY kids even more excited to see this film, aside from the viewing of the trailer approximately 3234 times already, we decided to come up with a Healthy Trail Mix Recipe that’s sure to please the whole family and add to The Nut Job excitement in the house!
