The Croods - 2013

Movie Info

Rating: PG


Age-appropriateness: The Croods are, clearly, modeled after (according to evolutionary theory) transitional ape-like men; slapstick violence


Overview: After their cave is destroyed, a caveman family must trek through an unfamiliar fantastical world with the help of an inventive boy. A caveman father lives his life in constant fear, merely trying to survive day-to-day, when his family meets a boy who lives for tomorrow, exploring and taking curious risks. It’s a dichotomy of merely getting by in life and truly living.


Themes: comfort, broken world, parenting, family, fear, adolescence, purpose, curiosity, creativity, inventions, exploration, love, jealousy
