Storyline

In a city park, Surly the Squirrel has finally gone too far with his latest caper leading to the animal community's winter food cache being destroyed. Now exiled, Surly and his rat buddy's, Buddy, collective nightmare on the streets ends when they discover a nut store to raid. Meanwhile, the squirrels, the heroic Andie and the ditsy Grayson, are charged by Raccoon to find a new food source and Andie runs into Surly. With no other options, she arranges a deal to help in Surly's heist for the colony, even while Surly fully intends to betray it. However, there is more going on with the nut store being a front for bank robbers while Raccoon has his own agenda to ensure his own power. In the mayhem to come, Surly finds himself challenged in ways he never expected and discovering the real prize to treasure in this adventure. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Did You Know?

Trivia

In Surly Squirrel (2005), the original short film about of the rivalry between Raccoon & his followers against Surly & Buddy, Raccoon's team are depicted as the "good" side. In this feature length remake, this is reversed. See more »

Goofs

The dog whistle is treated like it's painful for the dog to hear, but not any other of animals. Actually, a dog whistle would be just as painful for the squirrels to hear, because their hearing range is within the frequency of a dog whistle. See more »

Quotes

Surly: It's not going to be easy but we're talkin' almonds, pistachios, walnuts and did I mention the peanut brittle?
Jimmy: Whoa, is that a nut, or a candy?
Surly: [laughs] Both.

Terrible, bad, ugh!
20 January 2014 | by See all my reviews

I saw this movie tonight with my two daughters. We were looking forward to seeing it as the trailers looked fairly entertaining. About 10 minutes in, my 4 year old say to me: "Daddy, why isn't this movie making us laugh?" Perfectly put! The movie makes a terrible attempt at humor (unless you think beavers farting is hilarious). There is no original humor in this movie. Every time a joke was made, my wife and I looked at each other and shook our head in utter disgust. The characters are lame and the plot is dumb. Save your money. This movie is not even worth a $1.29 redbox DVD rental, which I'm sure redbox will have in its inventory very soon. STAY AWAY! It was so terrible, we walked out in the middle when both of my daughters kept asking to go home. I wanted to ask the theater to provide a refund for being such a terrible movie, but felt too stupid to admit that I bought 4 tickets.
