Storyline

After breaking out of a rehabilitation zoo, Frankie, a squirrel with all the angles, returns to his forest. He learns from his dim-witted best friend, Cody, a porcupine and street-con, that while he was in lock-up, the entire forest was picked clean by The A.C.O.R.N.S. Institute (Alternative Cosmetic Oils for Regenerative Natural Skin-care). No acorn was left behind. With winter just around the corner, it's a potentially devastating blow to all forest critters. So, Frankie has no choice but to bust into the brand new, state-of-the-art, rodent-proof A.C.O.R.N.S. Processing Plant and take back all of the acorns! Though a seemingly impossible heist, success would not only save the lives of his forest friends, but it would also give Frankie a chance to win back the love of his life, Lola, a local "show squirrel." Sadly, Lola has been burnt by too many of Frankie's false promises in the past. With the support of Frankie's old mentor, Mr. Bellwood, a wealthy badger, Frankie and Cody ... Written by Anonymous

Fun!
4 November 2018 | by Roadie2See all my reviews

When I first saw this movie, about a year ago, I was not certain how much I liked it. It was nice, and the story moved along well, but I was distracted by the animation. I did not think I cared much for how it was animated. But after a year, I watched it again and much to my surprise, I really enjoyed it! I have been a fan of animation for a while (being an amateur cartoonist myself) and I am fascinated by the strides taken in this area over the past twenty years. Not every animated movie need look the same. In fact, it would be pretty boring if they did. I found myself loving the characters this time. I thought character was particularly well developed. Now I was not distracted by the thought of the animation itself, I began to notice a lot of little touches (very cute) that had escaped me in my first perusal. I enjoy this movie so much, I don't mind watching it over again. That's when I know I truly like a movie.
