Surly and his friends, Buddy, Andie and Precious discover that the mayor of Oakton City is cracking one big hustle to build a giant yet quite-shabby amusement park, which in turn will bulldoze their home, which is the city park, and it's up to them and the rest of the park animals to stop the mayor, along with his daughter and a mad animal control officer from getting away with his scheme, and take back the park.

'The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature': The Very Definition of Laziness
'The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature'
'The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature' is a 2017 computer animated film produced by Open Road Films, creators of 'Justin Bieber's Believe.'
'The Nut Job 2' is a bad film, but not the kind of bad that you can enjoy. Rather, it's a film that robs any enthusiasm, hope, or light inside of you and destroys it. It's not clever, or fun, or in anyway bears a semblance of enjoyment. It is cold upon delivery, and until its conclusion you, the ignorant viewer, are forced to witness its ramblings.
The plot itself is not grounded, or devoted to making a point, or even interested in carrying some sort of purpose. It just ...is.
Surly Squirrel and his pack of forest critters are living off the fruition of an abandoned nut shop for several years now. However, in the process many have lost their primal instincts. This, in itself, is an interesting idea. For a children's film produced by a mediocre studio, it is, dare I say it, an innovative and important concept. However, because subtlety appears to be gone nowadays, we meet our villain, a fellow called Mayor Muldoon, your typical onenote kid's bad guy; a rich, fat, bald male with a bratty redhead daughter. Muldoon wants to tear down the park and in its place install a local amusement park. The animals now must protect their beloved park, while also transitioning back to their original instincts due to the recent destruction of their Nut Shop.
In one scene, Surly takes on an impending bulldozer by biting an unidentified wire, which inexplicably launches the dozer into the air and flips it around a bit.
I could explain, or rather, an 8 year old could explain, why the essential laws of gravity would disprove this scene. But do I really want to? It's the 'Nut Job' sequel. You know what you're getting into.
Here are some actual lines of dialogue actually uttered in 'The Nut Job 2.'
"They threw our potty in the river."
"More like Dustalicios!"
"We're all gonna die!" (Mouse says it about 12 times whenever something negative happens)
"I'm Frankie, you're Precious! That makes us Frecious!"
"So many mailboxes!" (Surly crashes into mailbox a grand total of 5 times)
The only line I laughed at in this entire film was when someone said, "It's funny how quickly rock bottom sneaks up on you." Not because of the character's situation, just because I really identified with that.
