    For a kids movie, I give it 3 1/2 stars. It won't rock your world, but it was fairly entertaining. As a parent, that's basically what you are aiming for.

    I am a good uncle and I try to take my brother’s kids to see a movie once in two weeks and I am happy to say that this film was pretty great and I recommend seeing it in the theaters. I spent some extra cash to see it in 3D and I think it was totally worth it because the film was pretty incredible visually and 3D enhanced the experience. My niece and nephew also really liked this film and that is pretty rare to find a film that both kids and adults can watch together and enjoy it together. I thought that the characters were well developed and likable and i liked the story and the theme of the film. Overall, I think this film is worth your time and money and it must be seen on the big screen.

    I went to see this film with my little niece and we both had a great time watching it. We saw it in 3D and I definitely think it is worth the extra cash because the film is pretty amazing visually. It is amazing to see how far animation has come, I was very impressed with how this film looked. I thought that the characters were interesting, relatable, and very likable and that is why I really enjoyed watching this movie. My niece really liked it as well and it is hard to find a film these days that both adults and children can enjoy together. Overall, I think it is a great family film that will make you laugh and you will have a good time watching it.

    I took my sister’s children to see this film and we all had a great time watching it. i thought the story was quite interesting and original and I enjoyed the theme of the film which was about a patriarch having to learn to adapt and let go. I also liked the theme of family members protecting each other and I thought that the film was quite funny as well. I liked that the film was not too long and I also thought it was quite beautiful, I enjoyed all of the characters and I think this film has something for everybody. Overall, I think it is a good family film and I recommend seeing it in the theaters.

    This movie was hilarious! I generally prefer the Pixar animated movies to the Dreamworks in general but I still really enjoyed the movie. It's the best Dreamworks animated film since Kung Fu Panda 2. Nicholas Cage does a serviceable job as the head of the Crood clan, but it's Ryan Reynolds and Emma Stone who really hit the home runs in this movie. Both of them make their characters really work and their banter is genuinely funny, especially since we all seem to know someone like Stone's character who is a boy crazy teenage girl who won't listen to anything her father says. Sometimes I could have sworn that the dialogue was ripped straight out of my sister's life, she talk EXACTLY like this, lol.

    This movie wasn't as great as I would have expected but it was still pretty darn good nonetheless. It comes from the director of the Disney classic "Lilo & Stitch" and also the fun and amazingly memorable computer animated romp "How to Train Your Dragon". The story is about what is purported to be the first road trip ever (they're a family of cave people, see) and it quickly turns into a family fight that all road trips turn out to be. The daughter of the family butts heads with the patriarch - and not just because she's a strong headed teen. She has a crush on a handsome stranger they meet along the way who tells them he knows where they can find a new cave...but can they trust him? Or should they? There's a lot of fun and light hearted moments that make the movie memorable for younger viewers. It should go down as one of the best of the year. A family friendly crowd pleaser.

    Your first indication that the latest computer animated romp from Dreamworks is not exactly the best animated film you’ve seen is that it’s releasing in March. Any cartoon worth its pixels is released in the summer or Thanksgiving thru Christmas season.
    Your second indication should be that it stars the voice of (wait for it) Nicholas Cage. Yes, the ever-grunting and cheerless Cage who long ago gave up the dignity of acting for commercial success (it’s like a d*** Cheney false choice!) is the star attraction in a movie that is supposed to make youngsters laugh and cheer. Good job, casting department.
    Since it’s set in prehistoric times and purports itself to be about the first family road trip EVER, you can expect a lot of tongue-in-cheek references to The Flintstones. It sort of helps that the movie is co-directed by Chris Sanders who made the winning and charming Lilo & Stitch over a decade ago when he worked at the Mouse House, but this film doesn’t have the strength of character or depth of relationships that made Lilo so memorable.
    It does have a gruff father (Cage) who is constantly battling it out with his teenage daughter (Emma Stone), especially when it comes to the handsome stranger (Ryan Reynolds) they happen upon as they make their way to a new cave. But since it’s all so stock and cliché and only features a small amount of laughs for the grown ups, this one is straight kiddie fare. It will come and go in a few weeks time, and no one will remember it in a year’s time.
