Though impressive in many technical and surface ways, it lets us down on the essentials of character and story, and no amount of late-stage father/daughter bonding or vertiginous 3D cliffside tumbling can make up for that.

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.

Oh crud...

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

Loud, dull and daft, this piece could do with crawling back to the cinematic primordial soup.

DreamWorks' latest is a lusciously mounted but simple-minded adventure that won't long linger in your memory.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

A handful of adrenalizing sequences of animated anarchy can't save this story from feeling overly primitive.

"The Croods" rests on the notion of the patriarch who must learn to adapt and let go. (I resent this storyline, for the record.)
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Disappointing.

It does a lot of things well, but nothing extraordinarily. The end result is a solidly middle-of-the-road - and thus forgettable - bit of slapsticky animation.

You do rather wonder if an American studio will ever again have the nerve to make a children's animation with the simple, unblunted power of Dumbo or Bambi.

Bold visually but thumpingly ordinary storytelling.

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

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

It's a lot better than some of the titles aimed at tykes, but anyone older than 10 may be hard pressed to find anything of value here outside of engaging eye candy.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
March 25, 2013
An impressive, colorful, imaginatively-designed cartoon adventure, rather spoiled by being shackled to a deeply perfunctory story.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

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.

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

Neither as thrilling nor as funny as it ought to be.

For the most part it's Neanderthal compared to the Pixar stable.
