Good for the kids
I gave this movie a So-So rating because it lacks the sophistication and humor of Studio Ghibli or Pixar, but it's not a bad movie.
Take your kids to see this movie, but don't expect to be as entertained as they will be. I like the movie's artistic style and originality. These aren't Jurassic Park dinosaurs, but they'll make great Happy Meal toys!
A lot of recent animated movies have tried to broaden their market by offering more adult humor and emotions. The Croods focuses on the younger audience, and it does a good job of it. Too often, cartoons for kids are too simple and juvenile. This movie has a fun story, some great action, very good artwork, and some cool characters, dinosaurs included.
