There were plenty of belly laugh oppotunities here for the whole family! We saw it last night and have been talking about it ever since- already planning to purchase it so we can watch it again and again. 3D was well worth it as well- great time!

I took my almost 6 year old grandson to see this movie. He enjoyed it, laughing a lot but I'm uncertain if he understood everything that I did, which made it enjoyable for me as well. My grandson loved the 3D, his first, and especially loved the action. Recommend for parents with kids 5+ Was surprised that hardly anyone was in the theater at 1:30 on a Friday during Spring Break.

'The Croods' suffers the same problems as another recent release, the revived 3D version of 'Jurassic Park'. Although a new film, it seems to rely on animation technology from about fifteen years ago. That would make it astounding... in 1998. Now it just looks as crude as the characters in the film. Trying to milk (roughly) the same territory as the endless 'Ice Age' flicks, it desperately needs its own Scrat to make it all semi-enjoyable. And Nicholas Cage's voice just does not fit in with the hulking physicality of Grug, the paranoid Neanderthal father.
It does have some positives, including the various animals that spend their time trying to kill Mr. Crood and his clan. Some of the creatures could have only been dreamt up by dropping acid and then reading 'On the Origin of Species'. But mostly it is a standard teen-girl meets teen-boy who makes daddy look, well, like a cave-man kind of story. Which makes the plot the crudest part of this *** film.

Seemed to be a typical Dreamworks flick. Good quality, family/life lessons, etc... My seven year old loved it as with most animated movies though. Good one for the kids/family.
