It's a boring movie and the writers tried to make it more interesting with fart jokes. Lots of "nuts" references, some of which are highly inappropriate outside of the context of this movie. If your child is one to pick up lines from a movie, you wouldn't want them saying "I'm just a squirrel trying to get a nut" later on. This would only be funny to the really young kids, but I don't think the jokes are appropriate for them. There is also quite a bit of violence. Watch this one alone and then decide if your kids should watch!

To tell you the truth it's a bit squirrel-y
Once again this is a movie just for kids. It's clean (despite lots of farting...). It's not meant to impress adults; it will impress young kids (especially boys). The movie has a happy ending, it's not scary, the bad guys get caught and life goes on better than it had before... If you are looking to educate see a different movie. If you are looking to entertain kids on a rainy or snowy afternoon, book it! (I wouldn't take your gal tweens though.)
I think that Nut job is ok for a certain age group.There is some violence throughout the movie but it is still a great movie. Nut job might be frightening to little kids because at times some characters fall or hurt themselves and it looks like they might be dead. But they are not. It is a fun movie for kids who can handle it.
