QUICK TAKE:
Animated Comedy: A number of animals try to thwart a mayor's greedy plan to turn their city park into an amusement park.
PLOT:
Things are looking good for the animals of Liberty Park, what with squirrel Surly (voice of WILL ARNETT) having acquired access to the basement reserves of a nut shop, thus ensuring plentiful food for one and all. While the likes of Surly's best friend, Buddy the silent rat (noises by TOM KENNY), pug Precious (voice of MAYA RUDOLPH), groundhogs Jimmy (GABRIEL IGLESIAS) and Johnny (JOE PINGUE), Mole (voice of JEFF DUNHAM) and various others enjoy the plentiful spoils of Surly's work, his squirrel counterpart, Andie (voice of KATHERINE HEIGL), isn't as pleased.

She thinks it's both unnatural and a bad idea to rely on that as their food source, and her concerns end up justified when the nut shop ends up destroyed by an accidental explosion. Now the group's leader, Surly is certain more food will be easy to find, but quickly learns that's not the case.

To make matters worse, the city's greedy and corrupt Mayor (voice of BOBBY MOYNIHAN) wants to turn Liberty Park into an amusement park, all to line his own pockets, and his young and bratty daughter, Heather (voice of ISABELA MONER), dog-naps Precious to join her pet pooch, Frankie (voice of BOBBY CANNAVALE).

From that point on, Surly and company try to thwart the mayor's plans and construction efforts, but must not only contend with an animal control worker, Gunther (voice of PETER STORMARE), who's been sent to take care of the animal problem, but also a cute yet formidable mouse, Mr. Feng (JACKIE CHAN), who's moved from the countryside into the city with his army of martial arts trained mice and doesn't like any sort of interlopers coming his way.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
If they're fans of the first film or animated movies featuring talking animals as the main characters they probably will.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For action and some rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
