Took my granddaughter who is 9. We both loved it and the 3D effect was the best I have seen yet. Absolutely adorable movie. I give it a thumbs up!

We took our six year old son and eight year old daughter to see the Croods 3D and they both enjoyed it, as did we. They're not ones to like anything too scary or violent, or too action-packed, and this hit the right blend of mild scares, chases, action, and comedy. It was heavy on slapstick, which worked well for us. Most of all the story was quite good; touching but not overly sappy. The 3D worked well overall, though in a couple of spots they went for effects that were a bit dizzying. The story line does provide good fodder for conversation with kids afterwards, there's a lot they can learn from it and think about, but there is also a lot to laugh about after, too.

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 ...

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.
