My Review:

Back in 2013, when The Croods was released, it became a big hit in my household.  Every time my nieces or nephews came over to visit, The Croods was the most requested movie to watch.  Now we can continue that tradition with The Croods: A New Age.  

Viewers will see the same Croods family in this new film, along with a new family, The Bettermans.  As the name implies, The Bettermans are a little higher on the evolutionary ladder.  The fathers of both clans are particularly protective.  This movie shows how being more modern can be both a help and a hindrance.  Slapstick humor and feminism are featured themes throughout the film.  And, the Thunder Sisters totally had us laughing!  Although we liked the original film better, The Croods: A New Age did not disappoint.  

Win It!
