Was a little skeptical about going to see it as the name wasn't very eye catching. I decided to take my kids to see it. Ordered tickets via "Fandango"...... Anyway its a good movie and gives a great theme to children not showing there feelings towards there parents. Great movie...

Good family movie

Pleasantly surprised by this movie, believing it was going to be an "Ice Age" ripoff, and those have been going downhill fast. But "The Croods" was full of silly (not stupid) laughs that just leave you smiling. Worth a watch, especially if you have children.

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.

Visual effects were great, story was flat

True to form, Dreamworks always does a tremendous job with the stunning visual effects of these movies. As well, the characters and voicings (i.e., actors behind the characters) were enjoyable. But to me what truly makes a tremendous movie - one that I both I and my 4 children, ages 3-7 , can enjoy - is a strong story, and that to me fell short. The story seemed to be an attempt at focusing on a coming of age tale between a young teen girl and an overprotective father, but was hard to tell where the story was going at times. And planet earth exploding and collapsing on itself all over the place seemed to be the 'compelling event' to drive father and daughter to better understanding each other, but it in of itself was often its own distracting spectacle, that didn't make sense why it was happening, and it wound up scaring the kids at times. Some of the characters were indeed endearing, but both myself and the kids wound up collectively losing interest halfway through the film.

Had some of Hollywood's most well-known names for characters but in the end, its a movie for the kids. A couple of funny moments...not terrible, not great.
