I wasn't expecting this movie to be as good as it was. It was really funny. I laughed out loud quite a few times. My 6 year old son loved it. Great story line, beautiful animation and some super adorable creatures that even I fell in love with. Highly recommend.

If you have kids or just want a laugh, go see The Croods. Great original story line with some funny moments. Even tugs at your heart. We have a 8 and 4 year old that both were glued to the screen. Would love to see it again.

I was a little overwhelmed in the beginning. Some of the action at the start of this movie had me thinking that the makers were trying a bit too hard. However, once it settled down, I thoroughly enjoyed The Croods and all of their antics. I also appreciate the fact that there are a couple of lessons that can be learned here.
Go see it! Especially if you're a dad with a daughter. You'll both appreciate each other more after watching this movie together.

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.
