This is definitely a kids move and for kids a bit on the younger side but still a fun family night out. Good graphics and the animals were just right - not too scary for the little ones.

Took my grandson to see this in 3D and it was a great way to bond with this 6 year old. We both loved it and not just because I'm a 6 year old at heart. It was funny. And of course it had an underlying message so it is good teaching tool for someone with young children. And again, it was real funny!

My daughter really wanted to see this movie, so we went for our father daughter date. We both really enjoyed this movie, and the 3D was the best I have seen. We sat in the middle of row 2, and it was great fun. I would recommend it for any age group.

'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.
