Took my 3 kids (8, 6 & 4) to see this movie. Overall it was so-so for me but they seemed to enjoy it, more so the experience though. It had a lot of slow points in the film, making it seem that they really wanted to drag it out. Best part was near the end though and won't ruin it for those that haven't seen this but definitely a good family story. I would definitely recommend if you're going to see it to do it during the matinee times, if not then wait for the DVD release.

After seeing The Croods, this much can be said: Ice Age did it better. Is The Croods the worst film to come from Dreamworks? No. Is it the best? Not even close. Granted, the film has stunning animation, showing that Dreamworks continues to improve in this craft, but that's about it. The film's story is cliched and the characters are pretty forgettable despite that the actors do an alright job. Worst of all, the comedy was lackluster. The jokes made little sense and it could have been better if the delivery was executed differently. So yes this is a flawed film, but it is pretty harmless. If you are heading the theaters with your family, The Croods can certainly make for a fun time; but if you fan of Dreamworks Animation, then you might want to skip this one.

My family and I enjoyed this movie. Yes it does not have a deep plot, but this simple story made me cry! More movies should be about family bonds and love. It is cute enough so the little kids can enjoy it. The animation is excellent for the teens and adult to appreciate it. It is original and creative. Don't listen to the critics. If you want to have a good time, go see this movie!

Took my 2 kids to see it Sunday evening. They loved it and so did I. Well done, fast-paced, didn't feel overly dramatic or drawn out.
