Simple, funny, and sweet -- not 'clever' or 'artistic', but so what?---Yes, the story is very simple. Many of the jokes are simple. So what!? I loved the characters. I loved the simple fun humour. I loved the funny and cute creatures. This movie does a perfect job at it's goal: being a fun and sweet movie for all ages to enjoy.Some more specifics:Humour style: ridiculous situations, stupid behavior, cheesy and easy to relate to human interactions. Creatures! Very imaginative at times and quite cute and funny.Most people will like this movie. If you are the kind of person who really enjoyed Citizen Kane, then you may not like this movie.
Exciting, Interesting and can watch with family !---Watched It yesterday. Liked it very much. I just love how the film showed the evolution from cavemen to gatherer, hunter. funny too. Now, it is hard to find any movie that we can see with family. Adult Materials is every where. I find it more useful that it doesn't contain any of that stuff and safe for children.The story comes out to be more interesting eventually. I really feel pity for the brother. I saw that is's been nominated for Oscar too. Good choice. I am eagerly waiting to see The Croods 2.Hope, it will me as enjoyable as the first one. This type of films will encourage the youngsters to know about history and ancestors form where we came.

Great Family Movie---This movie was a movie made for the entire family to see, young and old. There weren't any scenes that I wasn't familiar with. Overall, the movie deserves great praise and stands out, compared to other animated movies that I have seen throughout my life. The graphics are eye popping, and the acting is great! I don't see how anyone could go wrong with this movie as a whole. The Croods do a magnificent job at trying to survive on their own, in places they never imagined were possible! And they pulled through in the way end, no matter how many problems they faced, and to me that is a great moral for families to learn! The movie is well worth the money and is worth the see. I highly recommend you buy this movie on DVD or Blue- ray, because it is truly a great family movie that you can't go wrong with.
It's hard to describe... really, I don't know if I liked it or not.---The Croods... there is a lot to say about this movie. The movie is unlike any animated movie I have seen, which is weird because one wouldn't suspect that BECAUSE it is like so many other animated movies but ISN'T! The Croods steps into a weird territory where it does a lot of things familiar but then does all of the familiar things in a nearly unrecognizable manner. This is why I consider this movie a good movie because it is one of the ONLY animated movies that really confuses me... and I'm not easily confused.The movie starts off with explaining that The Croods are the last of what was once a neighborhood of cavemen. Sadly, all died, so now the Croods stick by the rules and live in fear. What makes this movie ingenious is that it doesn't know who the main character is. Eep seems like the main character, but Grug gets a lot of screen-time as well. Also, the movie was very smart. Grug could've been the bad guy. He could've had no redeeming features. HOWEVER, it is established early on that the only reason any of them are alive is because of his strength and endurance to keep everyone alive. Grug isn't smart, but he will risk his life and do anything to keep his family safe. Heck, he even doesn't eat food for over a week just so that his family can eat. That is a loving father. This is one of the reasons I like this film. A lot of movies have trouble making a good father character, but this one gets it... at times.If you've seen the trailers, you know that a newcomer comes along named Guy who is an inventor. The nice thing this movie did is that showed right off the bat how physically epic the Croods are in strength and just how weak Guy is compared to them. Eep lifts Guy up with her wrist and nearly kills him within the first couple seconds of meeting him. Speaking of strength, this movie has its momentum done right. Whenever the Croods are moving, they move with A LOT of speed and are incredibly strong (punting rocks hundreds of feet away).I'm getting distracted. The real thing I find interesting about this movie is that it is one of the only animated movies I have seen that has blended incredible realism with Looney-Tunes slapstick. The movie is gorgeous. It really is. The water made me pause for a second and realize that it wasn't real water... but I thought it was for a moment. Most movies either use CGI for the beautiful shading but still have cartoony visuals (Madagascar, Tangled, Frozen) or either they use incredible realism (Beowolf, Rise of the Guardians, Brave) but this movie combines both. The humor and the movement is directly taken from several Pink Panther skits and Merry Melodies, but the animation rarely stretches of squashes. They still move like they are real. It confuses me because naturally that sounds like a horrible idea... but... this movie pulls it off. I can't say that I have ever seen a movie that has done animation this way.The story itself if pretty good as well, but is fairly kid-oriented. There are some laughs for adults, but some jokes seem a little too... kiddish at times. Which is another weird thing: this is an animated movie that isn't trying to be dark and serious! Really, this movie is perfectly content with being light-hearted, funny, and really laid-back. It has its dark moments and its sad moments, but overall it is upbeat and happy. It is refreshing to see this kind of movie get released.Also, the soundtrack is really good along with the character interaction. None of the characters are obnoxious and they all interact with each other in a very realistic manner. I think half of this movie's humor comes from the "subtle" jokes or the little gags that fly by in a second. There is a lot going on in this movie, but it may be hard to pick up on the first time.All in all, The Croods DOES have some hiccups and you will notice them when watching it. However, when I look back on it I realize that this is a special movie. It is unique in almost every way and ISN'T really unique at all. I wouldn't mind being stuck in the world that was created... for just a couple minutes more. Oh yeah, and the creatures were cool. Not basing it off of real animals is clever.
The Old and the New---The Neanderthal family the Croods lives in a cave, protected by the father Grug in accordance with the rules of survival that he has learned. His teenage daughter Eep is rebel and questions why the family lives in the dark. One night, Eep sees light and she finds the Homosapiens Guy that can control fire and is intelligent and tells that their world will end. When their cave collapses, Eep seeks out Guy to follow him to the new world. But the stubborn Grug does not accept the change of rules and wants to find another cave to protect his family."The Croods" is a funny animation with the eternal theme of acceptance of what is new. Grug is a good caveman that based on the experience of his former neighbors, believes that he can protect his family locking them inside a cave. When he meets Guy with new ideas, there is a hilarious friction and competition. But the conclusion is well resolved and his family aggregates a new member and several pets. My vote is seven.Title (Brazil): "Os Croods" ("The Croods")
