Brendan Fraser, Gabriel Iglesias, Liam Neeson, Katherine Heigl and Maya Rudolph. The animated comedy arrives on Blu-ray on April 15th.
Synopsis: Surly (Arnett) is a mischievous squirrel with a mission: to find the tastiest nuts for winter. But he doesn't care about the other animals in the park, making him a rebel and an outcast. When he discovers a whole store filled with his favorite food after being banished, he plans a heist of nutrageous proportions and eventually has to choose between what's good for himself and what's good for his friends. When it turns out the nut shop is owned by ruthless bank robbers, though, it's up to Surly and his furry friends to stop a nearby bank heist, save the town and gather plenty of nuts for the winter.

Better than despicable me 1? I'm not sure about that. Caught this at a drive in theater last Saturday. I found it enjoyable. Sure it's not the best movie ever or anything but it was decent. May buy it at the right price.
I like that cover. It makes the studio happy by getting many of the characters onto the cover and makes the finicky consumer happy by not making it a disproportionate mess. I haven't seen it yet, but my kids loved the preview.
