Movie Critics
…You never know where you’re going to find the most radical ideas. …a searing indictment of capitalistic government corruption …burns with a proletarian rage…
Katie Walsh, Tribune News Service
…an environmentalist movie where all the humans are bad and the laughs and entertainment value aren’t there… Extreme Caution… [2/4]
Ted Baehr, Movieguide
…The film’s meanspirited tone picks on both creatures and humans, like construction workers for being illiterate, animals almost too dumb to survive and the wicked rich. …slapdash animation… a dismal story…
Monica Castilloaug, The New York Times
…the Mayor's young daughter is psychopathically cruel. She torments her pets and rips apart her dolls with fevered glee… unfolds without as much toilet humor as its predecessor…
Bob Hoose, Plugged In
…louder and more frenetic than the first installment. …Frantic, violent and generally unpleasant… More hellish than hilarious… [1/4]
Rafer Guzmán, Long Island Newsday
…Loud, bright, and hollow… lazily written and cruddily animated… underwritten characters, slack comic timing… [1½/4]
Keith Watson, Slant
…a cringe-worthy cartoon… The great thing about bad movies like this is they remind you just how difficult it is to make better movies… [1½/5]
Stephen Whitty, The Star-Ledger
…largely unengaging… stale slapstick… you’d have to be nutty to sit through “The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature”…
The Washington Post
… The computer graphics are ugly and dated, the plot a clump of clichés, and with one notable exception, you can almost hear the voice cast scrolling through their phones in the recording booth… [1/5]
Robbie Collin, The Telegraph [UK]
…In a golden age for animation this just isn’t good enough. often deeply stupid… …it’s all so surprisingly dull, making the film feel vastly longer than its running time… adults will be bored out of their tree… [2/5]
Helen O'Hara, Empire [UK]
…There’s a school of animated filmmaking that says the more havoc the better, and “The Nut Job 2” is very much of that school. If you want to laugh out loud…then don’t get your hopes up. …
Owen Gleiberman, Variety
…once again Arnett, Heigl and company simply don’t come off as dimensionally warm and engaging as required… still preferable to singing chipmunks…
Michael Rechtshaffen, The Hollywood Reporter
