    The movie is well-edited and lean, a fast-paced, action-filled bit of froth that manages to be diverting and surprisingly fun. show more

    The Croods are not meant to be beauties — they are, after all, a family of Neanderthals. But is the animation meant to be ugly, too? show more

    Familiar family dynamics are amusingly exaggerated in the Paleolithic setting, where the most basic necessities require everyone's full-time attention. show more

    The first pleasant surprise of spring, a gorgeous kids’ cartoon with heart and wit, if not exactly a firm grasp of paleontology. show more

    Maybe 3 1/2 stars. A little better than the average animated movie. But why is their world falling apart?

    This is an awesome movie for the whole family young and old. The story is wonderful, and there are no holes that looses the audience. You will be have a great deal of fun all through out the movie. It\'s not just the story that\'s great, the special effects are amazing, and I didn\'t see it in 3D,..
