Reviews
Like an extended cartoon, we were entertained and laughed often.
When I watch an animated movie like this one I try to identify the voices without knowing the cast. It took me a while, discarding Tom Hanks and Owen Wilson, finally recognizing the distinctive voice of Nicolas Cage. He is arguably the main character, the over-protective dad, Grug, in this animated movie about a prehistoric family. They apparently stay in their cave, with a boulder protecting the entrance. Only Grug is strong enough to move it.

All this doesn't sit well with the strong-willed daughter, Emma Stone as Eep, who often goes off by herself, and sometimes explores high cliffs without dad's permission.

One day she is stumped when she encounters a boy, Ryan Reynolds as Guy. But they eventually manage to become friends but when the rest of the family meets him they go a bit crazy. They are afraid of anything new or different. So much of the story is that theme, learning to accept new things, and to explore a bit instead of being so afraid that you stay in your cave until you are so hungry that you have to get out to find food.

But Guy also brings news that the world they all know is about to be destroyed, and they will have to find a new land. Other interesting characters are Catherine Keener as the mom, Ugga. Cloris Leachman as the old grandmother, Gran.

It is just a cool animated movie. There is a bare thread of a "message" about getting out of your cave, your safety zone, to live life instead of just waiting to die. But few of us look to animated movies like this for direction in our lives.

We enjoyed it, a good 90 minutes of entertainment.

Fun characters EXCELLENT message
The animation, beautiful colors, fantastical creatures, humor, etc are all cool, but the message was simply amazing. How many people live in the "dark ages" so fearful of everything that (quote from movie) "we aren't living, we're really just NOT dying". There were a lot of biblical references about the world coming to an end, and really only needing love and the strength and courage to "go toward the light" in order to "find Tomorrow".

Another metaphor, is that the SPEED with which these cave people must conduct all their daily activities just to survive replicates the fast-paced rat race which is now so "normal" we don't even realize how much we're missing. We rush rush rush all day long, just in order to...do it all over again the very next day. When they slow down and enjoy the beauty of everything around them is when these characters finally start to "get it".

It's also a wonderful story about the importance of family and the dynamic between parents/teens. If we try to protect them too much our kids may be safe, but they can't grow, become independent, and really live; but, if we give them just the right amount of freedom and boundaries instead of rigid rules, they figure out what we most want them to learn anyway--on their own--which is REALLY what we parents wanted anyway. So ironically simple and commonsense, yet still so hard to get it right. I literally had tears streaming down my face in several parts. Great movie! Check it out!

Refreshing Avatar vs Croods
At first when i read the synopsis on this movie I thought this was just another animation without a great story line with the same old jokes being used again. I was pleasantly surprised when i found out that - From beginning until the end this movie had everything - refreshing comical lines with great humor both for young ones as well as adults watching to the impressive imaginative graphics and ideas. I would like to compare this to be the animated version of Avatar. Definitely one of the best animated movies i have seen for a long time. The Characters were fantastically portrayed and the story line never got lost. For those wanting to sit down and relax without too much thinking i would highly recommend this to all.

I loved it!
This film is one of the best movies I've watched ever!!!

Congratulations to the entire cast and production. A special congrats to Nicolas Cage, who really did a great job with the role!!!

A film that entertains us from the beginning to end. Funny dialogs, with emotion and humor.

I loved the way that the human emotions was used in the film. After all, we all have our conflicts and struggle, and seek a new tomorrow, even better.

In some scenes I cried. So beautiful!!!

I'm looking forward to watch the sequel.

Surprisingly a funny and visually beautiful adventure
I didn't expect much going into this movie. I feel that it was sort of overshadowed by the large summer blockbuster releases. I vaguely remember the trailer advertising it as a cave man family vacation. It was however more than that. It sort of went under the radar, and I think that works to its advantage. Some of the scenes of the forest were very reminiscent of Avatar, with bright colours and interesting creatures. Although the ending and end credits song were very upbeat and happy. (End credit song is very catchy in the way that Tarzan songs were catchy). There was one dark moment that truly stands out, when Grug is left by himself in the cave and paints his family in a circle of his outstretched arms. If this was a dark and macabre film, they could have ended Grug's story at that point and faced the ire of angry parents and fans. However, I do prefer the happier route that the director chose. As well, the action scenes were actually very exciting and intense. You really can't go wrong with Nicholas Cage as your lead voice actor, and his characteristic talking style adds to the story. Overall, give this movie a shot and sit back and just take it all in.

Another Modern Stone Age Family
This film is recommended.

The Croods is the perfect example of what is right and what is wrong with the work coming from today's animation studios: stunning visuals and a so-so story.

The film begins with a wonderful chase sequence that utilizes the best in state-of-the-art computer animation: fluid movement, strong details, and vivid colors. It always entertains in telling its tale of a prehistoric family and their struggles to survive the end of the world. But its predictability and overall cuteness wears thin. Characters are more caricatures and sketchy stereotypes of a typical family: Grug the domineering father,  Ugga the loving mother, Eep the rebellious teenage daughter, Thunk the lunkhead brother, Sandy the pesky youngest sibling, and Gran the dotty grandma.

Once their man-cave is destroyed, they are off on an adventure as they explore the new world disorder. With their journey comes unique surreal creatures and vibrant environments and, of course, a love story as Eep meets that special guy named Guy. But the emphasis is on action, with little time on character development and too much time being spent on each dangerous encounter, followed by another, and then yet another.

Yes, there's lots of running around, avoiding the various exciting obstacles in their way. Interest never lags. Fine voice-over work by Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, and Cloris Leachman add to the fun. The images throughout the film are quite impressive. Were that the thin story would rise to the caliber of visual excellence by its creative team.

Still, any animation fan should see this film for its visual strengths and some sly humor that punctuates this adventure saga. Written and directed by Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders, The Croods is diverting entertainment that the whole family, especially the young pesky ones, will completely enjoy. GRADE: B

Refreshing!
When I first saw this movie in trailers and pictures I was certainly not a fan of the premise. I am not a huge fan of movies that are set in this era like Ice Age and several others but just yesterday I wanted to give the movie a chance and I was pleasantly surprised!

The animation is wonderful and the character and monster design are very different and surprising. The world they live in is very creative.

The movie has a great pacing and also knows where and how to let the viewer feel different emotions. The movie can be funny the movie can be sad and it works wonderfully.

If you were not convinced by the marketing or trailers do give it a shot. It is very worth your time.

Fun Time with a life lesson!
Just Wow! if you are looking for a good family movie with lots of humor,colorful characters, a life lesson for all of us, then this is the movie for you.

the graphics,effects,colors are awesome. all the characters are full of fun, even the weird looking grandma is funny.

its a combination of love,anger,fear,courage,ignorance. i am sure that you will have hell of a good time watching it. Keep Calm and Watch Movie..Zzz

A strong Dreamworks animated film
Dreamworks has had a decent string of movies with their Shrek and How to Train Your Dragon franchises. However, their one off animated films are not always that memorable. The Croods is one of those films that goes above most of the average material that these films settle in delivering some sweet moments along with outstanding animation.

Good: The cast all around are great lending their voices which make the characters pop out with Cage, Stone, and Reynolds being the standouts. The animation is gorgeous and I loved the designs of the creatures in the world this movie created. The movie was also really sweet without being cheesy and moved by on a good pace.

Bad: The humor is pretty weak at times and it especially falters in the third act. While the story is solid enough, it still followed the typical teenage rebel wants more storyline we have seen multiple times before.

Overall, while the humor is not terribly funny and the story still hits the familiar beats, it remains entertaining enough to gain your attention and deliver the goods.

An Enjoyable Prehistoric Animation Romp
The Croods are the last cave family in their "neighbourhood" with the other families having been killed by one thing or another. This leads Grug Crood (Nicolas Cage) to be a bit over-protective with his family meaning that they hardly ever leave their cave and that anything new is bad. Eep Crood (Emma Stone) is more adventurous, though, and is constantly frustrated by her dad's over-bearing manner, so one night she leaves the safety of their cave to investigate a strange light. It's here that she meets Guy (Ryan Reynolds)...an incentive young boy who predicts "the end of the world". After an earthquake destroys their cave, the Croods - along with Guy - leave to find pastures new, bringing about different dangers & adventures.

The Croods is an enjoyable roller coaster animation ride, but unfortunately I didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. Don't get me wrong...it's still a very good movie, but it was just missing a certain something to make it better. DreamWorks have done better animated movies with Shrek and Turbo to name some, but that doesn't mean The Croods is bad.

As we have come to see from a lot of DreamWorks movies, the animation is superb and is crystal clear, especially in Blu-ray. The humour is constant throughout the movie as well which is good because that's much better than an animated movies that only have two or three funny moments and then nothing else. The humour isn't "roll about laughing" kind of humour, but it is enough to definitely make you laugh.

One wee minor downside was that a couple of scenes did tend to drag on a bit with the "chasing for food" opening scene being one of them. The casting was spot on as well and they all done a great job. None of the characters were annoying, and I actually think that Belt - Guy's pet sloth - is one of the best characters in the movie.

The Croods isn't just a kids movie but is a family movie, and it doesn't matter if you're 6 or 60...this is a movie that everyone can like.

Watch it and enjoy.
