- QUICK TAKE:
- 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.
- WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
- If they liked the first film, they probably will.
- WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
- For peril, action, and rude humor.
