The Croods Review


If you are looking for a movie that the whole family will enjoy, you have to check out The Croods!  This hilarious, unique film is nothing like any other movie you have seen.  The story line, characters, and amazing computer animation make The Croods stand out against the rest.  Here is the official synopsis and trailer…

The Croods is a prehistoric comedy adventure that follows the world’s first family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always shielded them from danger is destroyed. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures – and their outlook is changed forever.

It has been a long time since my whole family has been able to see a movie together!  Either our schedules don’t line up or one or more of us don’t want to see the particular movie we are going to.  Everyone wanted to see The Croods!  Even my husband who I usually have to drag out of the house to go to anything!  We all loved the movie!  It was so fun listening to my kids crack up every two seconds!  Especially my 4-year-old.  He is super shy but has the loudest laugh!  I think I thought it was just as hilarious as my kids did.  I loved Eep!  She reminded my of myself when I was younger….independent, adventurous and a little stubborn!  My kids thought Guy was so cool.  My 9-year-old secretly wants to be just like him!  Gran’s character cracked me up!  It becomes quite clear from the very beginning that Grug doesn’t want his mother-in-law around, but Gran is determined to make it through just about anything to stay with the family!  The Croods was by far the funniest movie I have seen all year!  My kids loved it just as much as I did. I would definitely recommend it for the whole family!

  2. We just saw it on Friday night. We loved it! You are right about it being a movie for the whole family. We even took my mom. She enjoyed it just as much as the rest of us. It is a great movie!

  3. I am going to see this fun family movie! I like the characters and I like Nicolas Cage in this funny movie. Thanks for this great review!

  4. The only thing that sold me about this movie is that Nicholas Cage is in it, and you wouldn’t be able to tell. Thankfully, he wasn’t the best thing about this movie. Good review Ashleigh.
