Excerpt: a sequel to the 2013 animation that could be seen as a metaphor for our current politically divided country along with its more obvious themes of togetherness vs. privacy, protective parents, bromance and girl power.
Excerpt: Grug Crood (voice of Nicolas Cage) and his family need to get out more often. In the listless “The Croods” (2013), they mostly stuck to their cave. But in this sequel, they wander out into a bigger, open world full of creatures that are missing from the fossil record, and the clan’s long-term quest for survival seems livelier and more imaginative.
Excerpt: While the story hasn’t evolved that much, ‘The Croods: A New Age’ has a line-up of talented voice cast, lively and colorful animation, some big laugh-out-loud moments, and a great message about getting along and working together to turn it into a decent, pleasant sequel.
