The Croods is an animation which is the story of cave dwelling family going into a road trip. When the Croods cave is destroyed, they have to find a new home. The family embarked on an adventure into strange land in order to find a new home.
The Croods family is headed by Grug as the father, Uuga the nurturing wife, Eep the teenage daughter, Thunk the son, and Gran the mother-in-law. Grug is overly cautious and obsessed with keeping his family alive; the family rarely leaves the cave. Eap is the typical teenage girl, curious and somewhat rebellious, cranky and constantly butting head with her father.
They live on a cave and their surroundings is full or rocks and boulders in a time when the earth is transforming with landforms shifting. They have to abandon their cave and travel to a place where the earth is crumbling with flowing lava but a place full of magnificent trees, brilliant flowers and clear water.
The writing is clever and swift and the movie as a whole is pleasant, funny and very entertaining although at times it is predictable. The animation is also very well done and visually dazzling; the trees and flowers are really magnificent.
Nicolas Cage did the voice of Grug, Catherine Keener did the voice of Uuga, Emma Stone did Eap and Cloris Leachman is the Gran. Directed by Chris Sanders and Kirk De Micco.
