The Croods is simple enough in its story and structure that its emotional honesty and touching message will catch you quite off-guard.

This is a very nice little family film with excellent visuals and interesting characters.

The voices have also been well chosen and you're likely to enjoy the entertaining squabbles between Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds.

You won't learn anything about life 100,000 years ago, but you may enjoy yourself.

Energetic slapstick, aimed at indiscriminating youngsters who will want to buy lots of Crood toys.

It's not only entertaining, it's pretty darn visually impressive. On occasion, it's even rather touching.

No wonder it's doing so well at the box office.
March 25, 2013
An impressive, colorful, imaginatively-designed cartoon adventure, rather spoiled by being shackled to a deeply perfunctory story.
March 25, 2013
A witty and slapstick-laced script by writers-directors Chris Sanders and Kirk De Micco, some flawless 3-D work and solid character and beautiful background animation combine for an entertaining 92 minutes.

Dreamworks have done far more than simply dust off The Flintstones 2.0; The Croods may not yet be a household name, but with their personal brand of buffoonery and heart, you'll be wanting an introduction.

This is pure DreamWorks magic.

The Croods tells a pleasant story about family, the utility of man, and letting go -- all of which I will demonstrate in review with caveman-speak.

It's the Ice Age that isn't terrible and Cage, as the voice of papa caveman Grug, delivers his most interesting, energized, mainstream performance since... well, since I forget.

The humor's classic or prehistoric, depending on your tolerance for slapstick. The 3D animation is state of the art. And the life lessons are all too wearily contemporary.

The Croods isn't particularly smart, but it has just enough wit to keep us engaged and just enough speed to keep us from feeling restless.
March 24, 2013
"The Croods" is a touching animated film that not only entertains, but also delivers a sweet message about families and how change can be a good thing.
March 24, 2013
There's something depressing about the fact that The Croods could probably be watched by an audience anywhere in the world without subtitles and they wouldn't miss a thing.
March 24, 2013
The complacency and lack of imagination are painful.
March 24, 2013
The first great animated film of the year. Truly hilarious.
March 23, 2013
The Croods is exactly the sort of animated fare we receive on a monthly basis from Hollywood. On the scale of such efforts, it's pretty good, with an engaging second half making up for a tedious opening stretch.
