The Croods Movie Giveaway (ends 3/25/13) #TheCroods


The newest DreamWorks Animation film, The Croods, makes it’s way into theaters on March 22, 2013.

The Croods stars the voice talents of Ryan Reynolds, Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Cloris Leachman, Clark Duke and Catherine Keener.

The Croods is a 3D comedy adventure that follows the world’s first modern family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always been their home is destroyed. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods are rocked by generational clashes and seismic shifts as they discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures — and their outlook is changed forever.

I love the trailer they show on television where Emma Stone is wearing shoes for the first time and freaks out because she doesn’t know where her feet went. LOL!

Here is a little more detail about the film.

The Crood family dynamics, though unfolding a few million years ago, feel like they could come from your own household. Like most fathers, family patriarch Grug (Nicolas Cage) is fiercely protective of his wife and three kids. His hyper-vigilance has kept his cave-bound family safe, secure and….super- bored. Grug’s strong and dutiful better half, Ugga (Catherine Keener), accepts her husband’s “fear is good; change is bad” mentality, as does their son Thunk (Clark Duke), who’s content with the static status quo. Feisty mother-in-law Gran (Cloris Leachman) never tires of needling (or sometimes assaulting) Grug; and stone-tough toddler Sandy might be the fiercest Crood yet.

But leave it to a rebellious teenager (is there any other kind?) to stand up to parental authority. Grug’s sole focus is survival, but Eep (Emma Stone) wants to actually LIVE, and her curiosity about the world outside their cave collides with her dad’s primitive rules (ever the defiant outsider, Eep gets her own ledge to sleep on while the rest of the Croods form a “sleep pile” for some group shut-eye).

A cataclysmic event forces the Croods to venture into parts unknown and rethink their way of living. En route, they encounter Guy (Ryan Reynolds), whose dazzling new discoveries – like fire…and shoes – shake up the Croods in unexpected ways. Most of the 2 family (especially Eep) is smitten by Guy’s vision of a new place called “tomorrow,” but Grug sees the biggest calamity yet: a charming teenage boy from which he must “protect” Eep.

The Croods soon realize that if they don’t evolve…they’re history.

The Croods is directed by Chris Sanders & Kirk DeMicco, and produced by Kristine Belson and Jane Hartwell. The screenplay is by Kirk DeMicco & Chris Sanders, with a story by John Cleese, Kirk DeMicco and Chris Sanders. The music is by Alan Silvestri.

It looks like teenagers have been challenging parents since the dawn of time. LOL!

Here is the film’s trailer. You can also find the trailer here, http://bit.ly/Y7TJPp.

    We went to see the movie today and we loved it. My daughter is already completely in love with sloths (after a trip to Costa Rica, where we visited sloth santcuaries). Her passion, other than sloths, are stuffed animals and it has been suprisingly hard to find plush sloths.
    She would absolutely love, LOVE this gorgeous Belt!
