THE CROODS: A NEW AGE is Now Playing in Theaters AND On Demand For Your At Home Viewing Pleasure

My family and I received a complimentary on demand viewing of The Croods: A New Age and a gift pack courtesy of Comcast NBCUniversal.  All opinions are my own.

THE CROODS: A NEW AGE – NOW PLAYING in theaters and on demand December 18!

Although we love the experience of seeing a movie in theaters, it has also been wonderful to have the option to rent and enjoy movies in the comfort and safety of our home during these uncertain times. Movies have been such a joy and an outlet to relax, spend some family time together and laugh and enjoy the wonder and magic of a cinema experience together.

This weekend my family and I popped some popcorn, kicked back on the couch and watched The Croods: A New Age.  We thoroughly enjoyed the movie with its bright and colorful animation, quirky characters and never ending string of jokes and parody. It has a stellar voice cast who brings the characters to life so naturally and sets the tone for a fun, enjoyable film. If you are a fan of animated films like we are, The Croods: A New Age is definitely a fun addition to add to your watch list this month.


The Croods have survived their fair share of dangers and disasters, from fanged prehistoric beasts to surviving the end of the world, but now they will face their biggest challenge of all: another family

The Croods need a new place to live. So, the first prehistoric family sets off into the world in search of a safer place to call home. When they discover an idyllic walled-in paradise that meets all their needs, they think their problems are solved … except for one thing. Another family already lives there: the Bettermans.

The Bettermans (emphasis on the “better”)—with their elaborate tree house, amazing inventions and irrigated acres of fresh produce—are a couple of steps above the Croods on the evolutionary ladder. When they take the Croods in as the world’s first houseguests, it isn’t long before tensions escalate between the cave family and the modern family.

Just when all seems lost, a new threat will propel both families on an epic adventure outside the safety of the wall, one that will force them to embrace their differences, draw strength from each other and forge a future together.

The Croods: A New Age features the voice talent of returning stars Nicolas Cage as Grug Crood, Catherine Keener as Ugga Crood, Emma Stone as their daughter, Eep; Ryan Reynolds as Eep’s boyfriend, Guy; Clark Duke (Hot Tub Time Machine) as Thunk and Cloris Leachman as Gran. They’re joined by new stars Peter Dinklage (HBO’s Game of Thrones) as Phil Betterman, Leslie Mann (Blockers) as Hope Betterman, and Kelly Marie Tran (Star Wars: Episode VIII-The Last Jedi) as their daughter, Dawn.

The film is directed by Joel Crawford, who has worked on multiple DreamWorks Animation films, including Trolls and the Kung Fu Panda franchise, and is produced by Mark Swift (Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie, Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted).
