‘The Croods’ an entertaining laugh from the past

Movie Review


Pauls Valley, Oklahoma —

Really the only thing this movie might have going against it is not enough puppet gags or a few too many mother-in-law jokes, but even then I couldn’t help but stay engaged throughout. It’s not likely a contender for best animated prize either, especially since the most intriguing options for that are still in the weeks and month ahead.

Still, I will give props to features like the soundtrack, another whimsical entry from Alan Silvestri and Cage for actually sounding somewhat less monotone than a great deal of his past characters. I recommend it for a family gathering and while not something I’ll likely add to my permanent collection, something I’d watch again later on TV. In the end, for effort I’d say the verdict for “The Croods” ends up being three out of five continents.
