The Croods is cute and colorful. Dreamworks did a great job creating a spectacular world filled with creatures you will find familiar and foreign at the same time.
For Adults: The Croods is a good (not great) animated movie. It is completely watchable and will definitely have you laughing. The backbone message is weak even for an animated film, but the meat of the movie is entertaining.
For parents: DreamWorks does an excellent job of making the dangerous creatures in the movie not scary to small children. The Croods held the attention of all the children in the theater. Some parents might take issue with the hitting/punching/biting of the Crood family, and Eep's parental disobedience. Those drawbacks would be for the pickiest of parents. Everyone else? It's a fun flick. If you cry at movies, you might want to bring a tissue.
There are fun stills at the beginning of the credits and a passable scene post credits.
If you like my reviews, add me as a fan. I'll add you back!

The storyline moves quickly to keep you interested and the laughs are almost nonstop. I enjoyed this movie immensely and will be buying it on video as soon as it hits DVD.

The beginning was a little worrying, I thought I was in for a "way-too-kiddy" movie and that it wouldn't be enjoyable for a 20 year old. However, as the movie progressed, it got more and more hillarious and exciting. It had all of the elements of a great family movie, adventure, humor, family love, etc. I saw this movie with a group of college friends and we all nearly cried. I would recommend it to anybody looking for a feel good movie. Not sure Nicolas Cage was the best choice for the father's voice, but it was amazing otherwise!

The Croods was an animated film that seemed uncertain of its audience. The message of constant fear doesn't seem as if it would be very palatable for young children, but the simplistic relationships and messages don't seem appropriate for adults. There was never any explanation of why the characters felt one part of the world would be safer than another. The story had large plot holes. Definitely a poor effort for DreamWorks.
