We tooks our kids (3 & 6) to see the Croods over Spring Break. EVERYONE enjoyed it. Cute story, vibrant colors, fun 3D effects. I really enjoyed the story and was never bored and my kids loved it. Cute characters and funny too! I recommend. :)

We're the Croods

First off, along with Oz this was by far the best 3D I've seen in a long time. The movie itself was thoroughly entertaining from beginning to end. If they make a sequel, you can definitely count us in. Take some time to take your kid(s) to see this. Maybe they can grab a cool pair of 3D glasses too.

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.

I was pleasantly surprised that this movie was pretty good. Took the kids last weekend, from the ads I thought it would be awful, but it was sweet. Some good use of 3D, kids both liked it, nothing too scary and the humor was appropriate.
