Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The family-dramedy genre that the film inhabits demands a bit more narrative ingenuity than is on display.
Fresh: Fast-paced, inventive animated comic adventure of a Stone Age family gets an extra boost from the lively vocal performances of stars Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone and Ryan Reynolds.
Fresh: As family viewing, it's pleasant enough: primitive, yes, but in a digitally sophisticated way that's boisterous, funny and will no doubt sell a lot of toys.
Fresh: "The Croods" is light fare, but it explores a serious theme, if only superficially.
A great animated movie
This movie is great. I loved it!
SoSeverian, agree with you 100%! This was a boring animated film & I am astounded by the great reviews. I enjoyed "Madagascar" by the same creators & expected similar wit, adorable zaniness, culturally authentic feel, etc. Sadly, this film had nothing charming or intelligent & the most boring dialogues & unattractive characters. I rather ended up watching old re-runs of the "Flintstones" , although outdated, still has a lot more caveman charm than this.
Guy is a Plato-Christ.
The main character, Guy, is a hybrid between Plato and Christ. His obsession with the sun is an homage to The Form of The Good which is Plato's version of God, represented as the sun, in his Allegory of the Cave. Guy also teaches with stories and walks on what nobody else can walk on. There is also the overt "What Would Guy Do?" Modern Man is the man of thought and ideas: the way of the future.
