  • 75 - by Laremy Legel
    This Chris Sanders fellow knows how to craft a heart-warming animation, and if not for a few minor problems this would have had a legitimate shot at the best animated movie of 2013. more

    Chicago Sun-Times - by Nell Minow
    Familiar family dynamics are amusingly exaggerated in the Paleolithic setting, where the most basic necessities require everyone's full-time attention. ...

    Movie Nation - by Roger Moore
    The first pleasant surprise of spring, a gorgeous kids’ cartoon with heart and wit, if not exactly a firm grasp of paleontology. more

    NPR - by Bob Mondello
    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. ...

    Tampa Bay Times - by Sean Daly
    Although The Croods has lazy patches throughout, the conclusion is exciting and, lo and behold, surprising. more

    The A.V. Club - by Scott Tobias
    The film itself doesn’t practice what it preaches: From the typically blocky DreamWorks CGI to the emphasis on bruising slapstick over verbal wit, The Croods takes the low road at every opportunity, giving lip service to enlightenment while following a Flintstonian instinct to keep punching the clock at the quarry. more

    Just good, goofy fun, for a generation too young to have met Bamm-Bamm. more

    USA Today - by Claudia Puig
    More than anything, the striking spectacle of primordial flora and one-of-a-kind fauna makes it easy for audiences to get pleasantly lost in the adventure. more

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) - by Liam Lacey
    While paying lip service to the spirit of invention and adventure, the movie doesn’t do much for the evolution of children’s animated entertainment. more

    Philadelphia Inquirer - by Tirdad Derakhshani
    The movie is well-edited and lean, a fast-paced, action-filled bit of froth that manages to be diverting and surprisingly fun. ...

    Boston Globe - by Tom Russo
    Some of the exotic landscape the group trailblazes looks imported from “Avatar” — happily, bringing that immersively dimensionalized, eye-catching quality along with it. more

    Chicago Tribune - by Michael Phillips
    At least there's Cage, who has become an astute voice actor, finding some odd, clever, energetic line readings consistently fresher than The Croods itself. more

    The New York Times - by Neil Genzlinger
    The movie is at its most interesting and amusing when riffing on how cavemen might have reacted to new experiences and ideas, like fire and shoes. Whether the kiddies will appreciate that is unclear, but they’ll certainly like the voice work done by Emma Stone as Eep. ...

    New York Daily News - by Miriam Bale
    The Croods are not meant to be beauties — they are, after all, a family of Neanderthals. But is the animation meant to be ugly, too? more

    Arizona Republic - by Bill Goodykoontz
    The jokes only make up for the pedestrian plot for so long. There was a time when animated fare with generic stories sufficed. But now we expect more from them, because they have, pardon the pun, evolved. The Croods, like its title family, hasn’t. ...

    Entertainment Weekly - by Keith Staskiewicz
    A handful of adrenalizing sequences of animated anarchy can't save this story from feeling overly primitive. more

    The Playlist - by Jessica Kiang
    Though it's impressive in many technical and surface ways, The Croods lets us down on the essentials of character and story, and no amount of late-stage father/daughter bonding or vertiginous 3D cliffside tumbling can make up for that. more

    Time - by Richard Corliss
    It’s "Identity Thief" with flying piranhas, or Plains, Trains & Automobiles on foot. more

    Los Angeles Times - by Betsy Sharkey
    Good stuff comes when bad stuff happens; that's when some of the movie animation prowess kicks into high gear. But too many of the "solutions" the guys concoct are so impossibly complex or just downright ridiculous — puppetry comes to mind — that like the continents, it's a little too easy to drift away. more

    Variety - by Staff (Not credited)
    Although state-of-the-art in its rendering of textures, movement and stereography, The Croods, adopts a relatively primitive approach to storytelling with its Flintstonian construction of stock, ill-fitting narrative elements. more

    The Hollywood Reporter - by David Rooney
    Sanders and DeMicco’s script doesn’t have the robust plotting, consistent wit or flavorful character development of the best family animation. And some of the voice actors have too little to work with. more

    Time Out New York - by Keith Uhlich
    Aside from a few witty Looney Tunes–esque sight gags, such as one hilarious image of a woolly mammoth being swallowed up by the tectonically shifting earth, the stereoscopic visuals are a busy, personality-free digital blur. more

    New Orleans Times-Picayune - by Mike Scott
    The Croods does a lot of things well -- even if it does none of them extraordinarily. The end result is a solidly middle-of-the-road bit of animation -- but the kind that is easily forgotten as soon as something more evolved, and original, comes along. more

    The Guardian - by Peter Bradshaw
    It's amiable enough, but it makes "The Flintstones" look like it was scripted by Karl Popper. more

    But for the most part it’s Neanderthal compared to the Pixar stable. more

    New York Post - by Kyle Smith
    I’d like to take back all those times I said Nicolas Cage was one of the most annoying actors on film. It turns out he’s equally terrible when he’s only on the soundtrack. And yet Cage is the least of the problems with The Croods. more

  1. The Flintstones meet National Lampoon’s Vacation in this very fun update of One Million Years B.C. What sets this apart is its wild imaginative indulgence as well as its disregard for physics. A splendid time is guaranteed for all.
