THE CROODS – A NEW AGE (2020): The Thing I Liked…

I remember having a lot of fun watching the first The Croods (2013) movie. An animated action/comedy/adventure about a caveman family trying to survive while on a long, dangerous trek.

In the 2020 sequel, The Croods – A New Age, the same prehistoric family find themselves caught in a rivalry with another family. A group who claim to be better evolved. And best I can say about it is this: ‘The animation is pleasing and, there are some rather funny moments‘.

Starring, Emma Stone, Nicolas Cage and Ryan Reynolds, I was surprised to find that overall, the story felt forced and I, unfortunately, cannot deny drifting off a few times.

Now, I promise I was not in a bad mood before I started watching The Croods – A New Age. However, unlike in the first film, this time it was easy to identify almost all the actors behind the voices. And for some reason, that annoyed me. I still stand by me not being cranky when I started to watch the film. If anything, my disappointment with the story execution is the reason for any alteration in my mood.

The good news about directors Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco’s film is that at the very least, it’s ‘quite watchable. As such, if you liked the first The Croods movie, then give this one a chance. After all, it looks as though most people had a good time with it.

Read my spoiler-free movie review of  The Croods – A New Age (2020).


2013’s animated comedy/adventure The Croods has a good looking new sequel.

Directed by Joel Crawford; starring Ryan Reynolds, Nicolas Cage and Emma Stone, The Croods – A New Age follows the prehistoric family once again. This time they’re challenged by a rival family the Bettermans, who claim to be better and more evolved.

Is it possible for this movie to look any more fun? I think not! I don’t remember the first croods movie released seven years ago very well but I know I liked a lot about it.

I’m ready now for a the adventure, humour and cuteness. So, thank goodness the release date isn’t a year away.

Catherine Keener, Leslie Mann, Peter Dinklage, Clark Duke, Cloris Leachman and Kelly Marie Tran also star.

The Croods – A New Age Release Dates: November 25th, 2020 (US); January 29th, 2021 (UK)…
