“The Nut Job” (PG, 86 minutes, Universal): Cleverness is in short supply in this animated feature about a grouchy squirrel named Surly and his best buddy (Buddy the mute rat), who plan a heist to steal cashews, peanuts and almonds. Of all the flaws of “The Nut Job,” Surly’s gruff attitude is one of the hardest to overcome. He’s not a very fun character to travel with, even when he evolves into a kinder, gentler squirrel with an after-school-special-worthy lesson to share. But it doesn’t compare to the growing list of children’s movies that also delight adults were. Contains mild action and rude humor. Extras include animated shorts “Surly Squirrel” (the 2005 short that inspired the film) and “Nuts & Robbers.” Also, on Blu-ray: deleted scenes, storyboards slide show, lead voice actor Will Arnett interview on the script and dance-off end credits. Also available in 3D.
