Computer-Animated Comedy/Drama/Action: An overly protective prehistoric caveman tries to keep his family together in the face of teenage young love and the influence of more sophisticated outsiders they've suddenly met.

Having survived the perils that faced them in "The Croods," overly protective Grug (voice of NICOLAS CAGE) is simply trying to keep his prehistoric family pack -- wife, Ugga (voice of CATHERINE KEENER), her feisty mother, Gran (voice of CLORIS LEACHMAN), teenager Eep (voice of EMMA STONE), her younger brother Thunk (voice of CLARK DUKE), and their toddler sibling Sandy (voice of KAILEY CRAWFORD) -- together as long as he can. But the teen, Guy (voice of RYAN REYNOLDS), who's since joined them, is feeling a bit hemmed in, although he's romantically fallen for Eep and vice-versa. All of which worries Grug that they'll soon be setting off on their own to start their own pack.

His concerns end up temporarily put aside when he stumbles across a walled paradise filled with more than enough food to last them a lifetime. Little does he initially know that it belongs to far more sophisticated outsiders -- Phil (voice of PETER DINKLAGE) and Hope Betterman (voice of LESLIE MANN) -- who knew Guy as a child when he was best friends with their now teenage daughter, Dawn (voice of KELLY MARIE TRAN). Phil and Hope are repulsed by the crudeness of the Croods, but welcome Guy back with open arms and the hope that they can get him to stay for Dawn while getting the more primitive family to leave.

With Grug and Phil clashing, and Eep showing Dawn the outside world for the first time, it's unclear what and who Guy will choose, all while both sets of families must contend with a huge pack of punch monkeys and a much bigger menace lurking outside the high, protective walls.

If they liked the first film, they probably will.
For peril, action, and rude humor.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
