A prehistoric family embark on a journey of discovery in this animated comedy featuring the vocal talents of Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds. Content to stay within the confines of their stone-age cave, Grug (Cage), his wife Ugga (Catherine Keener), daughter Eep (Emma Stone), son Thunk (Clark Duke), and mother-in-law Gran (Cloris Leachman) soon find themselves homeless when a seismic upheaval literally brings the roof down. As they venture out into a wondrous, unknown world in search of a new home, the family soon team up with a nomadic caveboy called Guy (Ryan Reynolds), who offers his own unique take on the challenges ahead.

This is a film, which is set in prehistoric Pliocene era known as;

"The Croodaceous"

Took my 47 year old, to quench her need for to see a “cutesy” prehistoric animation, I must say I was pleasantly surprised the film was rather good. This is a very good cross-generational film that will appeal to children as well as adults – it has universal appeal. The narrative is engaging and the animation is some the best I have seen lately. The narrative deals with the “Croods”, and is a primeval comedy undertaking that follows the world's first family as they embark on a voyage of a lifetime, when the cave that has always safeguarded them from danger is demolished. Trekking across a remarkable landscape, the Croods discover an unbelievable new world filled with fantastic creatures.

As another reviewer has said the story is quite funny in the way it deals with fear of the unknown, being alone and life in general when you trying just to survive to the next day. For us it was a kind of rib-tickling, emotionally satisfying film. Your inner child should really like this film, well worth a very good five stars. I must say my 47 year old was very well behaved!

******* Update 19th August 2015 *******

It appears that a Croods part 2 is in the works for around 2017.

I took my family to see this film - age range of 9-65 and everyone came out saying how much they had enjoyed it. We have seen loads of animated films and thought we had seen it all, but this proved we haven't. There is plenty to be amused by and the story is interesting - the scene when the family are introduced to fire is really funny (the character is advised to hide from it in the tall dry grass) but there is one scene involving the dad which is quite moving (my 10 year old was crying). The basic story is that our cave family is the only one left in the area and the father has taken an overly-cautious approach to life to keep the family safe making them spend a lot of time closed in their cave. The daughter is bored and frustrated and one night sneaks out of the cave and finds a boy who can make fire. He tells her the end of the world is coming and the action begins from there after the familys cave is destroyed. Should they trust the new boy and follow him to the mountains or keep with the fathers idea of finding a new cave to hide in? The ensuing journey has plenty of ups and downs along the way and there's the message about sometimes taking risks in life to make it better. Visually the film is stunning, the animation is fantastic and I highly recommend it.

At this point I am pretty cynical when it comes to CGI cartoons on the big screen. Once upon a time it was the genius of Pixar and the entertainment of DreamWorks Animation. However, with these animations making more money than most live action films the number of them have increased and not always the quality. DreamWorks themselves have had a few dodgy films in their back catalogue so watching ‘The Croods’ was no guarantee. Thankfully, although it may lack some of the intelligence of the best modern animations, this is a heartfelt, colourful and fun entry.

‘The Croods’ centres around the titular family of Neanderthal people who have only managed to survive by hiding in their cave. When the cave is no longer an option they are forced to seek new ground with the aid of Guy, a Homosapien and is belt. The film is a mixture of coming of age (Ice Age) and family drama. It is the relationships between the family that makes the film fun; the protective father, overbearing grandmother, adventurous daughter etc. The dynamic is a very modern feeling one, but transported back to a lost age full of danger. It is amusing watching the naÔve Croods barely managing to stay alive.

As well as having great chemistry, the film also looks extremely lush. The setting of an alternative Age means that colours and creations explode onto the screen. The makers have created many made up animals for the film that look brilliant in BluRay and are different from the norm – almost Suessian. Voice acting wise the cast do well, even Nicholas Cage seems to fit as the father. He is able to bring a bit of depth to the character which makes the finale far more powerful than it deserves to be.

Allah Almighty has created all human being free and equal. We should not have to act or imitate to make a living in the society. If somebody does not appreciate our truthfulness, honesty, straightforwardness, boldness, and decency then we should reject them before they reject us. A girl should not require a "Guy" to guide her to the stars like a saint. Every girl in the world just like the "guys" should have the required freedom of mind to rise to the stars on her own without any expectation from a "guy" taking care of her. We cannot allow ourselves to be contained by fear, just as we cannot allow ourselves to be driven by fear. We got to have a mind free of all fear, greed, lust, or hatred; and try and reach out to the stars ourselves. We need to leave everybody alone to be whatever they want to be, just as we should ensure that others leave us alone to be whatever we want to be. Freedom of mind is a prerequisite to protection of honour, dignity, self-respect, and pride that define us as a human being as well as defines our boundaries and arms us with the required modesty that protects us from abuse and exploitation. A childish concept, but it is only meant for children in any case. Otherwise very interesting and eye-catching.
