I read a lot of reviews of this movie, but what a disappointment to me. My nephews liked it, but it was really long drawn out and the story line was all over the place. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The kids would like it and the 3D, but even to me the 3D wasn't that good.

In seeing the previews for the Croods, I feared this would be a film appealing to the lowest common denominator of the grade school audience. Instead, it was a pleasant and visually appealing film that exceeded expectations. The effects were excellent (and at times superb), the story was very predictable, but I guess we don't go to movies like this for the depth of plot and character development. The daughter/father relationship, which drove much of the movie, was sweet and done better than in "Brave". All in all, my family and I enjoyed it and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone with children.

The trailers for this movie were enough for me to want to take my granddaughters. The 3D was outstanding! Even though, for me, the plot was contrived...the kids loved it!

The animation was great, especially the first forest scene, but I thought the characters and writing were horrid. If you can stomach or like Honey Bobo then you'd probably like the characters in the Croods, which I found repulsive. What a waste of great animation.

I took the grand kids, and it was very enjoyable for all of us. The 6 year old didn't like the sad parts, but she was very glad to have a happy ending.
