The direction the sun sets changes from the beginning of the movie to the end. Initially the sun sets in the direction of the Croods' hunting grounds (two knuckle warning). But, they spend the majority of the movie heading towards a mountain in the opposite direction, which is where the sun sets for the remainder of the film. See more »
With every sun comes a new day. A new beginning. A hope that things will be better today than they were yesterday. But not for me. My name is Eep. And this is my family, the Croods. If you weren't clued in already by the animal skins and sloping foreheads, we're cavemen. Most days we spend in our cave, in the dark. Night after night, day after day. Yep, home sweet home. When we did go out, we struggled to find food in a harsh and hostile world. And I struggled to survive my family....

I was talked into seeing this, and I have to shout it out, because it is a RIOT! I don't write many reviews, but when I love a film, I have to. If I have any complaint on this one, it's the title. I expected gross-out humor ("crude"). There isn't any, really. It's actually extremely unpredictable, subtle and extremely smart humor.
It has a story arc that you begin to somewhat anticipate, but you don't feel you're being patronized. Instead, you're left feeling that very intelligent people put this thing together in hopes that everyone would find something to love about it.
The cast is great, the animation is fun, and it's non-dizzying 3-D.
When I saw it, the entire audience clapped at the end, because we were entertained throughout, and found the ending really satisfying.
What else? Sweet emotions crop up because we can all relate to the family dynamics. Every family has the screw-up, the salt of the earth, the rebel, and the stubborn one. And it has one of the funniest babies ever put on film. A baby unlike any baby you'll ever see anywhere.
Very, very funny. Definitely recommend.
