Nick at Nite sends in this review.
Not sure what to say here. I have a four year old and an eight year old. If it is a cartoon and it is released to a movie theater, we must go see it. The best compliment I can give this movie is that it was not terrible. My children loved it. I kid you not. My daughter cried at one point during the movie because she was so moved by the cataclysmic events occurring to this cave dwelling group of Neanderthals, and she cheered as all ended up happily ever after. The plot – the Croods have survived a nasty, brutish world by living in a cave, but they are forced to venture out as the world around them starts to change – not too complicated. It has some humor. It is a little long (the kids did not notice or care). I give a “B.” It could have been worse.
