I liked the first Croods movie, but this one was just absurd and cringe-worthy. The animation was the only thing that I liked.
Wow! Now that is "how" to do a family film right. Yes, indeed the tears will dry faster in the son. Both films were great. Good job everyone and thanks, I enjoyed the experience.
Indeed enjoyed this New age movie. Haven't seen the Old movie however for some reason, I'm sure this was Way better. This was very entertaining and humorous. Loved how all 3 saved the day in a weird kind of way ... or was that more? Great job and so well done.
I didn't think this sequel was quite as good as the original film, but it's still a great family film with a lot of silliness and heart.
I was pleasantly surprised by how entertaining this movie is--it was quite funny, creative and heartwarming.
if u have to buy this it costs $20 but I got it for free
om om om o my.
Formulaic sequel to the 2014 DreamWorks CGI caveman 'toon in which the Crood brood (Nicolas Cage, Catherine Keener, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds as Stone's boy-toy) moves to a more upscale prehistoric 'hood where their new neighbors (Peter Dinklage and Leslie Mann voice The Bettermans) turn out to be status-conscious snobs. Bananas, "punch monkeys," fart jokes and Partridge Family songs factor into the equation which is punctuated by the sort of lame caveman jokes that would have been rejected by "Flinstones" staff writers in the 1960's.
I enjoyed this movie very much. It wasn't only because the hilarious jokes or the catchy soundtrack. It was because this movie is about a father's and daughter's relationship and how to strengthen it. So many movies are without this important factor of life.
A sweet family movie with a real sense of humor and heart. Some minor peril and sad moments so not great with very sensitive kids, but well worth watching.
This movie is about the only cavemen family that have survived during the stone age, the Croods. They are a family of 6; Eep, Thunk, Sandy, Gran, Ugga, and Grug. Eep, the daughter is not allowed to go outside the cave after it is dark, but one day she escapes and meets a cave boy named Guy and his pet sloth named Belt. When Guy meets the rest of the Croods, he tells them that the world is going to end and in order to survive they must travel to the other side of the volcano. Along their journey, Guy makes inventions that the Croods never saw before like umbrellas, shoes, walking sticks etc. which fascinates Eep, but Grug does not approve. I found the characters and the movie very entertaining and funny; my favourite characters were Belt and Gran. I also liked how the Croods were always looking out for each other and caring about one another. There is going to be a sequel coming soon and I am excited! I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone. 4.5/5 stars

The Croods was a really well-done movie! I loved all of the characters, who were each unique and engaging. The storyline is original, and has the perfect balance of humour, adventure, and emotion. In many ways, the Croods reminded me of my own family, which made this film much more entertaining and funnier to watch. I think that it has aspects that will be relatable to many different people, which makes this movie really special and personal. I would definitely recommend this movie to other viewers, as it has a lot of important messages, is very entertaining, and extremely enjoyable! 5/5

This is an amazing movie. It is based around the prehistoric family the Croods live in a particularly dangerous moment in time. Patriarch Grug, his mate, Ugga, teenage daughter Eep, son Thunk and feisty Gran gather food by day and huddle together in a cave at night. When a more evolved caveman named Guy arrives on the scene, Grug is distrustful, but it soon becomes apparent that Guy is correct about the impending destruction of their world. My favourite part of the movie would have to be either the start of the movie or the part where see the new world for the first time. I loved how each of the characters had their own different personality and their were no personality twins. Another good thing about this movie is that it wasn’t one of those obvious movies where you know the ending, this movie has its own plot twists making it interesting. I would recommend this movie to people of all ages because it is a family friendly movie and a great movie to watch on your next family movie night. Overall, this is a fantastic movie in my opinion! 5/5

This is a family comedy and, like the Ice Age films, is not intended to be very realistic so don't expect that. Enjoy.

Family movie! Funny, funny film about a family of 'cavemen' who have to keep ahead of the end of the world as they know it. Slightly dysfunctional, but really, just like everybody's family. Well written, touching, comical....the whole works!
In the dog-eat-dog and everything-eat-man world of prehistory live the Croods, a cave dwelling family overseen by neanderthal patriarch Grug whose paranoid motto of “Never Not Be Afraid” has kept the clan alive if not exactly happy. Daughter Eep is hungry for adventure, Granny spends her days thinking of new insults to hurl at her son-in-law, youngest toddler Sandy thinks she’s part wolf, and son Thunk couldn’t tie his shoelaces to save his life…if he had shoelaces…or shoes for that matter. But the world is changing, and with fiery meteorites lighting the sky and volcanic eruptions destroying everything they’ve ever known the Croods are forced to think outside the cave and reluctantly join forces with Guy, a young loner and his simian sidekick who are seeking safety in the distant mountains and the mysterious lands beyond. Beset by natural disasters and garish menageries of psychedelic carnivores including flying piranha-fish, pastel tigers, and giant man-eating pansies, the Croods and their worldly guide (he knows fire!) slowly make their way towards the dawning of a new age—but with the threat of total annihilation constantly nipping at their heels will they survive long enough to see it? One of the most visually gorgeous and meticulously rendered animated features I’ve seen in some time, The Croods revels in multicoloured pastel sets while herds of outlandish bugs and neon monsters practically leap off the screen (and onto store shelves no doubt). The engaging orchestral score by Alan Silvestri keeps pace with the prehistoric action which is further enhanced by some eye-popping “camerawork” including POV sequences, turbocharged tracking shots and lots of adorable close-ups (awww….reptile dog!). Although squarely aimed at youngsters there is still plenty here to make mom and dad smile and a happy-go-lucky ending actually leaves you looking forward to the inevitable sequel (already in production). A welcome little break from reality…yabba dabba doo!
