On December 18th, The Croods come home. Dreamworks Animation presents the holiday event for the entire family! Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, Peter Dinklage, Leslie Mann and Kelly Marie Tran in The Croods: A New Age. In theaters now. On demand December 18th. Rated pg.
It is not in my nature to gush about movies (unless it’s part of the Paddington franchise, of course) but I feel like a gush is coming on. I did not expect The Croods: A New Age to be such a delightful story about families, love, and friendship. I mean, does one expect that from a movie called The Croods? It’s a movie about cavepeople, for goodness sakes! Sure the family is crude, but they can teach us a few things about the heart!
The Croods: A New Age Review
In case you missed the original movie, the Croods are a close knit family of savages that sleep, hunt and do pretty much everything together. Their patriarch Grug (Nicolas Cage) is content to keep his wife Ugga (Catherine Keener) and children Eep (Emma Stone), Thunk (Clark Duke), and Sandy (Kailey Crawford) safe if not stifled in a boring cave. Then Guy (Ryan Reynolds) shows up and offers them ‘Tomorrow’.
In The Croods: A New Age, The Croods are content but still on the move hunting for food. Meanwhile, the love story of the ages (am I allowed to say that?) is going strong between Eep and Guy. So much so, that Grug is afraid he may lose Eep. This prods Grug to find the perfect ‘Tomorrow’ for them all. Turns out, that their perfect ‘Tomorrow’ already belongs to another family, the Bettermans (Leslie Mann, Kelly Marie Tran, and Peter Dinklage). This sets of all kinds of hilarious situations between The Croods and the more evolved Bettermans (you know you have evolved if you wear flip flops).
At the heart of this movie is Eep. She is such a passionate and strong character. Her love for her family, her boyfriend and her friend really make her a great role model for strong women. And speaking of strong women- there is so much girl power coming from Gran (Cloris Leachman)!
This movie will entertain the littles with its pure silliness and bright colors, the friendship/love story will get the tween/teen set and the adults will be amused by the whole tidy package. It is a great movie to share on the holidays!
