Every now and then it is fun to go out to the movies with the Whole family. But finding a movie that is good for ALL ages can be a little difficult. So when the MI Savings Mama family was invited to see THE CROODS, we jumped at the opportunity.
Synopsis: The Croods is a prehistoric comedy adventure that follows the world’s first family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always shielded them from danger is destroyed. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures — and their outlook is changed forever.
This was the perfect movie for the whole family. It had everyone laughing – including Jeff and myself.. as well as Lil C who is 6 and Lil Miss who is 11. Once you started to listen to the voices, you realize all the great actors/actresses that are doing the voices. Especially Nicholas Cage – who does the voice of Grug (the dad). It was the PERFECT voice for this character.
Lil C’s FAVORITE character was “Belt” I think it was because of the “Dat – da -ta – da!” thing that he does. But, I agree, Belt was cute! I most related to Eep. Being the oldest daughter myself, I can see how she wants to go against what her family says. She’s curious – but she needs to know that her dad is doing what a father knows best – and that is to protect his family.
There were a lot of Twists and turns and oh-no’s and almost’s throughout this whole movie. But in the end, Change can be a good thing – and Family is the best thing.
