Another Product Hot off the Assembly Line

While companies like Pixar (and to a lesser extent, Disney) continue to innovate and take risks, Dreamworks is still using their same formula. The formula, of course, is use themes from better films, recycle all the same gags from previous efforts, splash some colorful visuals on it, and it if it does well, plan a sequel and a television series. Examples of this formula: Madagascar, Kung Fu Panda, How to Train Your Dragon and Shrek (though in it's defense, Shrek never got a TV series). Now, we can add The Croods to Dreamwork's extensive list of products.

The Croods is about a family of cavemen that are used to living in their protected cave. Eep, the oldest daughter of the family, wishes to explore the outside world, but her father, Grug, forbids it. But the entire family is pushe...

The Croods cruise

Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds needed this push in their life. Chris Sanders (who created a wonderful How to train your dragon) comes back with help from Kirk DeMicco in The Croods. A silly, rusty and superlative fun with right content and emotional punch to keep the interest on, for the film. Sandersís visual world is dangerous, as he is depicting the end of the world when cave men dwelled. Here is Grug (Finally Cage in a brilliant voice over) and his family. His daughter Eep (charming voice over by Stone) is always daring to take adventurous steps. This leads to a conflict between father-daughter and Eep meets a guy (voice over excellent from Ryan Reynolds) slightly more mature than these cave men, but has a brain to think of an idea. They take his help, despite Grug opposing him as ene...

Good to Be Crood

I'm conflicted over The Croods. While I though the design and animation was quite well done - the story and characters just didn't connect with me. What you have is really a basic family adventure mixed with the requisite comedy/drama quotient and wrapped up in a caveman skin. While it isn't done badly - it's pretty standard in my eyes.

Early on we meet our modern caveman family - father Grug (Nicolas Cage), mother Ugga (Catherine Keener), daughter Eep (Emma Stone), son Thunk (Clark Duke), Gran (Cloris Leachman) and the animalistic toddler Sandy. Grug is overprotective to the point where anything involving leaving their cave is forbidden - his nightly bedtime stories always end in death - usually due to "curiosity". But his daughter Eep is the polar opposite - she just wants to live he...

The Croods

The Croods (2013) The Croods consist of Grug (Nicolas Cage), his wife Ugga (Catherine Keener), grandmother Gran (Cloris Leachman), son Thunk (Clark Duke) and daughter Eep (Emma Stone) are your ordinary, run-of-the-mill caveman family. Their world is turned upside down when their beloved cave is destroyed and they must find a new place to live. Then, Guy (Ryan Reynolds), a nomadic cave boy who would rather use his brain than his brawn, enters the picture and their lives will never be the same. This is a fantastic film that kids and adults will find amusing and enjoyable. I loved Emma Stone as the headstrong Eep, but the actor that makes this film is Nicolas Cage as the loveable father Grug. Cage is perfect for the ridged but caring Grug. The film is filled with almost Dr. Seuss style ani...
