The Croods 

 

Black Friday brings extremely low prices to movies. We can go months thanks to what we purchase on that day. The Croods on Blu-ray + DVD + Digital HD is a classic example. Plenty of movie for a very low price.

I was concerned about The Croods. The whole cave man fantasy mixed in with the religious content by those who openly reject God. Thankfully it is light in The Croods. It is still present. I suppose it should come as no surprise since Nicolas Cage is involved in this project. He seems to pick a high percentage of projects that attack God, and attack His followers.

The Croods is set right before the continents split apart. This family of cavemen must embrace change. They need to adapt. A human teenage boy helps them embrace the future. The teenage daughter of The Croods is his love interest.

The Croods can also be seen as an attack on men. Since the father is the one who needs to change. The father is holding the rest of the family back. The father is not a great leader. At least until the end. The oldest son of the family is also shown in a bad light. The grandmother is the only female character in The Croods that comes anywhere near being shown in a bad light.

If you can get by all of the undermining attacks on reality and traditional families; you will find a funny movie. The Croods is oozing comedy from its pores. The ideas of the father, the interaction with wild life, and Belt. Belt is one of those characters who grows on you over time. By the end of the movie you are loving him, and laughing at him.

Plenty of bonus features on The Croods discs. The Creatures of the Croods, Cut Scenes, Be An Artist, Belt’s Cave Journal, and more. I have already watched The Croods multiple times. Our children have watched it even more times than Yolanda and I. A sequel would be welcome here at Family Friendly Gaming.
