This movie was some of the most fun i've had with a movie in a long time. It was hilarious, emotionally deep and original on every turn. The moral and underlining tone is as relevant as ever. Going against everything you know in order to survive and actually live your life is something we all must come to terms with and this movie hits the nail on the head. The graphics are incredible, the soundtrack is heart racing and dialogue is fluidly natural.

From the previews I did not expect it to be this good but I was pleasantly surprised. This is an absolutely perfect family film. It's hilarious, touching and relevant. Everyone should see this movie.

The previews for this movie made me not want to see it at all, but I ended up taking my niece & nephew to it in the theater (both far apart in ages) and they both LOVED it, and I have to admit I did too! Actually everyone in the theater watching it was cracking up, it has a ton of hilarious lines from every character in it. Best part, it was consistently funny throughout, not just in a couple of scenes, with jokes geared for all ages. A very creative story too with the family obviously (The Croods) who are the last surviving cavemen family. Their curious teenage daughter Eep runs into a more humanly "evolved" guy, actually whose name is Guy who lets her know the world is coming to an end. The Croods are afraid of life where animals hunt you at all times, but when their cave is destroyed in an earthquake, they are forced on a journey with their survival guide, Guy to stay alive. A MUST WATCH ANIMATED MOVIE!!!! Best one I've seen in a long time! The writer/director -Chris Sanders, who made Lilo & Stitch & also How To Train Your Dragon did this one! Hopefully Dreamworks holds on to him for future animated movies, Disney definitely missed out by letting that guy go!!!

Well, I want to write a review, but I'm afraid you will think I'm a Dreamworks plant, or something.

This movie makes me hate watching movies with my kids...for the first 10 run-throughs. The reason? My kids won't stop repeating the lines and laughing and saying, "Dad, did you hear that part when he said 'blah blah blah'?"

This movies has it all. It is funny. It is inventive. It has cave drawings. It has unrefined, crazy, cave-man behavior. It has touching, heart-warming moments. It has action. It has death-defying feats. It has monsters, but interestingly no real villains...except the subtle Earth-Apocalypse hint. It has weird creatures and never-before-seen extinct species. It has politically-correct free/wild pets. It has family dinners, for the old fashioned, but less-than-perfect manners for the non-prude. It has dreams. It has in-laws (great for laughs). It has little side jokes and stories that make kids laugh, but they aren't stupid or simiple, so adults laugh too. (Kind of like Shrek: intelligent humor for adults wrapped in silly stuff for the kids = cha-ching!) I have watched it 3 times now to catch all the quick one-liners that I missed or forgot. You'll never guess how it ends because it never gives away the plot like most movies do. It is very fast paced. There are enough jokes and funny comments to fill 3 movies. You literally can't catch it all and savor the "funny" in just one viewing.

Just good, relaxing fun for all ages. If you like movies, you'll like this one...

My 7 yr old daughter took mom & Grandma to see this when it came out. She was so excited and it did not disappoint any of us. This is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. It delivered a wonderful message for everyone! Now if only someone can come up with grown up movies that are original, excellent quality all around, heartfelt, and that stick with you & make you think long after you leave the theater, that's what we'd gladly spend our hard earned money to go and see. Keep these kinds of movies up, please :)

This movie has it all for all ages. This could be super for preschool to highschool. It is super fun, the story line moves, the characters are outstanding, the colors blow you away. It is one to see and even own. The characters are ones you relate to but the relationships are amazing. The character growth really is a key element to this movie.

The way the artists created the creatures, different geography, different regions was five stars! The colors, imagination and visuals are pushing the animation limit for this season.

Just typing this review makes me want to go and watch this movie over again. It has humor, action, romance (cute and clean), relationships, teen growth, trusting others, learning new ways and so much more packed inside this movie!

Just go watch it!

If The Croods has a familiar feel to it, it's because it deals with familiar themes - coming of age, fish-out-of-water experiences, confronting one's fears, and of course, the most familiar theme of all, family. That said, there's a lot to be said for the ways in which The Croods takes on these themes. The animation is beautifully done, the voice cast highly talented, and, unlike most other 3D films, the 3D is put to good use here, both of which should not be surprising when you consider that a lot of the same talent that made How To Train Your Dragon, one of the best 3D animated films ever made, was also behind the making of The Croods.

Set somewhere in an imagined prehistoric past, the film starts with a pelt-wearing girl named Eep (engagingly voiced by Emma Stone), talking about her family of cave-dwellers living deep in a rocky canyon, who apparently survive by adhering to the strict rules of the head of the family, her over-protective, over-cautious and over-bearing father Grug (Nicolas Cage), the number one rule being 'Never leave the cave!' Back in their cave, Grug is telling a story to the rest of the family - wife Ugga (Catherine Keener), younger daughter Sandy (Randy Thom), son Thunk (Clark Duke), and mother-in-law (the inimitable Cloris Leachman) - using a prop that represents Eep and her curious nature. None too subtly, Grug uses his story - and the unfortunate prop - to warn the family that curiosity, exploration and 'new things' are all threats to their survival and therefore to be avoided at all costs. While the rest of the family are appropriately chastened by Grug's bluntly cautionary tale, it only irritates Eep who longs to see what lies beyond their cave. And particularly above their cave, where a sliver of blue sky beckons.
