What dad can't relate to Grug and how us dad's don't get it, but we know it...very enjoyable humor with direct connection to family life today. Go see it and enjoy ...

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.

You pays your money and you gets what you expects.
This is basically "Ice Age" for the humans (even with a sloth Skrat surrogate). It's extremely well animated, with vivid visuals and great craftsmanship. But the story needs polish -- three characters (Grug, Eep and Guy) have engaging stories going for them, but the rest of the clan is completely neglected in this regard (the son and grandmother are just one joke characters and the mother is so vanilla she might as well have no speaking lines at all). There is, however, a surprising and subtle underlying message about tradition and security not making for a particularly worthwhile life -- more insight than I'd expect for a movie like this.
It's a good family movie and an entertaining diversion -- certainly worth a look, but they could have done much more with it.

The animation was fantastic and it had some funny parts but overall, I didn't think it was that great. There are more unpleasant ways to spend 2 hours but there are much better.

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...
