The trailers for this movie were enough for me to want to take my granddaughters. The 3D was outstanding! Even though, for me, the plot was contrived...the kids loved it!

The animation was great, especially the first forest scene, but I thought the characters and writing were horrid. If you can stomach or like Honey Bobo then you'd probably like the characters in the Croods, which I found repulsive. What a waste of great animation.

I thought it was really good movie and the kids loved it. I just wish they would have given us the glasses for the croods, but they gave us glasses for the Hobbit.

Yeah, I know... there's a lot of themes in here that are highly generalized. But the overall light vs dark message, avoiding death vs living life, although pushed to one side of the spectrum, father figures needing to reinvent themselves... it was good stuff to think about.

I wasn't sure about this movie at first; it seemed geared towards younger audiences, and while it looked cute, I was a bit hesitant. However, like a few other movies in the past few years (Tangled, anyone?) I was pleasantly surprised in the fact that this movie was adorable. It had cute dynamics between family and romance, beautiful scenery, and many scenes had me laughing (and a few crying). It's definitely a perfect family movie, and great for any age! I've seen it both in 3D and 2D and both times I loved it! The 3D is really subtle so you can watch either way, but it was adorable and touching and hilarious and I'm definitely getting it when it's on DVD.
