The movie hits everything we laugh about as well as take serious to include over protective fathers, pain in the a$$ mother in laws, rebelling kids, letting go, and taking chances in life. It's very funny, and an all around great dreamworks pic!

This is an animated movie about the last surviving prehistoric caveman family meeting the next human in the evolution of man . Nicolas plays the father of the caveman family and Ryan is the inventive boy that is the next generation [he knows how to create fire , use his brain , etc.] . Catherine is Nicolas' wife and Emma is his daughter . Nicolas protects his family by living in a cave [he thinks it is the safest place to be] but when something happens to it , they are forced to go on a journey far from their safety zone [that is when they meet Ryan] . Ryan helps them on their journey .
They have a 3D version .
This is a nice family movie by Dreamworks and if you can stay after the credits , there is a quick [about 30 seconds] scene involving some prehistoric mice playing music .
It's rated "PG" for some scary action scenes and has a running time of 1 hour & 38 minutes .
I can see buying this one on DVD [I think my grandkids would like it] .

We all enjoyed it, 6yr olds to 36yr olds. The storyline is not incredibly well put together, but it is an entertaining movie and our kids loved it. It also opened up a discussion subject for later, about the differences between Neanderthals and Homo Sapiens Sapiens.

Family went to see this movie and I did not know what to expect other than a cutsie family film. By the end all four of us had belly laughed numerous times and cried. The kids could relate the characters and situations. It was very surprising and delightful.

A new prehistoric family on the block that holds it's own against the original cavemen (Flintstones). Definitely worth theater dvd. Great animated feature sure to become classic.
