The Croods Reviews

While their situation sounds dire, "The Croods" is not. The DreamWorks animated film has enough slapstick humor, furry sidekicks and zippy 3-D action sequences to keep the story light.

An animated adventure kids will love.

Even the lively visuals and unrelenting thrill-ride pace can't disguise rough-hewn storytelling, or the fact that the tale of a old-fashioned macho cave dad and his family seems a bit yabba-dabba done that already.

This movie not only has its heart in the right place, it has its brain in the right place.

I'd like to take back all those times I said Nicolas Cage was one of the most annoying actors on film. It turns out he's equally terrible when he's only on the soundtrack.

"The Croods" is light fare, but it explores a serious theme, if only superficially.

Embodiment of the blandly mediocre as it teases you with the potential of being something better, but never reaching greatness. It's the Dallas Cowboys of the movies.

It's product, pure and simple: dependable, disposable and forgotten as soon as it serves its purpose.

[M]ore than an exercise in technical polish.

Insert your own joke here about the caveman movie suffering from a lack of development.

It's let down by an unfunny script that makes The Flintstones look sophisticated, and a surprisingly irresponsible message to be aimed at very small children.

The latest advances in computer animation have been applied to a truly primitive comedy-Ice Age recast with a family of nattering Neanderthals.

"The Croods" is 2013's first major animated tentpole release, and, as such, it will hopefully only be uphill from here.

Co-directed by Chris Sanders, brains behind the excellent How to Train Your Dragon , the latest flick from DreamWorks turns out to be moving, funny and highly original.

The Croods tells the story of a family of Neanderthals who live in perpetual fear and hunger in a dark cave, terrified of anything new or different. Any resemblance to the current state of the movie industry is probably coincidental.

It's the kind of rib-tickling, emotionally satisfying, universally appealing effort that gives computer animation a good name.

What's happening in America? Are there really scores of concerned but overprotective parents locking their daughters in padded rooms and not letting them experience any adventures? Actually, maybe Hollywood has a point.

Like the continents, it's a little too easy to drift away.

[It] might even give the little ones something more challenging to think about than its tired main plot.

A sort of methadone for die-hard Ice Age fans.
