There's a real resemblance between a rat in "The Nut Job," the new film by Peter Lepeniotis, and Remy, the main character in "Ratatouille," that wonderful 2007 Pixar film.And that's not a good thing for "The Nut Job," because anyone who makes that connection will be likely also remembering how "Ratatouille" showed so beautifully that an animated film, done with the right skill and imagination, can be equally enchanting to kids and adults. Something that "The Nut Job," a decent but frankly forgettable entry to the animal-centered animated film oeuvre, does not.Like most animated films these days, "The Nut Job," a joint Canadian-South Korean-U.S. production, trades on its celebrity voices, which here include Katherine Heigl, Brendan Fraser, Will Arnett, Maya Rudolph, and, most recognizably, Liam Neeson, who sometimes sounds like he could be on a Shakespearean stage.
