Download The Croods Movie - Now it’s finally time for me to sit down and give you my thoughts on the film. (The Croods Download) Here’s my straightforward movie review of THE CROODS, the newest 3D family film from DreamWorks Animation, out in theaters, March 22.

The Croods Movie Download - With the world literally crumbling around them. Film a family of cavemen head out in search of safety. And a new place to call home. In the process, each of them must face their fears and be willing to adapt to new situations, surroundings, and friends.


Download The Croods Movie - I admit, the backbone of the story and character dynamics are very familiar. We’ve seen the “the world is changing, now what?” scenario played out in the Ice Age movies. Rebellious daughter Eep and overprotective father Grug follow a pattern similar to that in Brave. And clever Guy, who regularly solves problems with brains rather than brawn, reminds me of Hiccup from How To Train Your Dragon.


The Croods Download - BUT…if the story is familiar, the packaging is something else altogether. Something spectacular.


Download The Croods Movie - For starters, this is a rare family movie in which there is a whole family. And not just that, but a multi-generational family, as Gran plays a big part in the story, too. The Croods may bicker and bark, but they are fiercely loyal to each other, and learn to rely on each other for their different strengths and contributions to their family.


The Croods Download - There is a lot of physical humor in THE CROODS. which the commercials seemed to focus on in early promotion of the movie. Indeed, the first 10 minutes or so of the film is a frenzy of action as the Croods hunt their morning meal. The sequence is accompanied by an NFL-like score from the USC Marching Band, which only adds to the loud, frenetic nature of the scene.


Download The Croods Online - But I don’t want moviegoers to get the wrong idea. There is also a lot of clever, laugh-out-loud humor in THE CROODS. It’s much more sophisticated than initial commercials may hint at. And the physicality of the Croods is more natural in the context of the whole film – I mean, they’re cavemen, for goodness sake. “Physical” is all they’ve known. And yet, throughout the movie they are compelled to transform in thought and in action, so what may seem like it’s going to be a movie full of slapstick humor is really much deeper than that.*


Download The Croods Movie Online - Also deeper is the amount of heart in this movie. I cried, for real. You get so invested in these characters that certain moments of peril or uncertainty leave a catch in your throat. And there are very touching moments of resolution and resolve. I would not hesitate to ultimately call this movie “sweet.”


The Croods Download Online - There are a few staples of most modern kids’ movies that are NOT present in THE CROODS. For which I am very grateful. Let me explain. First, there are NO juvenile, potty-humor jokes or innuendo, or pop culture references. Next, there is no real “villain” in this movie. No evil sorceress or spooky voodoo man. (The Croods Download Online) No deranged power-zealot or back-stabbing ingrate. The conflict and tension in this movie come from the environment, from change itself, and from typical family dynamics. Finally, although there is a “love story” of sorts between Eep and Guy, it’s – as another reviewer put it – rather “sexless.” There’s no marriage implied, no happily ever after.


(Download The Croods Movie) Eep fawns over Guy a little, but mostly I think because he’s new and interesting, not because she has some concept of him being “hot” (or is it “hawt?”). I read in film notes from the directors that she thinks of him more as a new toy, and he is often carried around like a kitten or a rag doll in the movie. In terms of what the directors chose to leave out of THE CROODS, it seems to me that this is a family film that remembers there are young kids in the audience, and I love that.
