Meet the Croods

Meet The Croods from DreamWorks.

A typical family who are our cavemen ancestors. There’s the strict dad – who goes through a struggle of self-realisation and turns into a superdad, of course –, also the stupid brother, crazy baby sister, mad grandma, all sorts of fuzzy pets, and the protagonist, a curious and brave young girl who later meets her smart and handsome ‘hero’. Oh I forgot to mention the not-so-noticeable mum.

The Croods

Having chosen this movie by a process of elimination, I wasn’t expecting much, but compared to another forgettable Die Hard or G.I Joe movie, I think I’ll watch my adventure and action in the animation genre.

I was deluged by popcorn and bubbly families in the cinema. They joined in the journey with the Croods from the beginning and laughed at all the jokes. I was infected by the spirit and couldn’t repress my smile.

Written and directed by Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders, if you don’t know the latter by his name, he has written Lilo and Stitch, How to Train Your Dragon and has been credited for many other Disney animations.

The Croods is a warm and adventurous family movie which adults can laugh along with their children. The dramatic music and some of the cheesy dialogue ruined some magical moments, but it works for the children and that’s good enough for the parents.
