The Croods in now screened at the Savoy 3D Cinema, Wellawatte
The film starts with Eep, a girl in a family of cavemen living in
pre-historic times, talking about how her family is one of the few to
survive nearby, mainly due to her father's strict rules, Grug. When in
their cave home, Grug tells a story to the rest of the family, which
includes his wife Ugga, daughter Sandy, son Thunk and his mother-in-law,
with a character that mirrors Eep's curious nature.
He uses this story to warn the family that exploration and ‘new
things’ pose a threat to their survival. This irritates the bored and
adventurous Eep, and when the family falls asleep after dark, she
ignores her father's advice, and leaves the cave. While venturing off,
she meets Guy, an intelligent cave boy. She becomes fascinated with the
fire he creates and is eager to learn more. He tells her about his
theory that the world is reaching its ‘end’, before giving her a
noise-making horn to call him if she needs help. He then abandons Eep,
who is then caught by Grug, who had been searching for her frantically.
Much later, he-brings her back home, only to find that their cave
home had collapsed due to an earthquake. The family then climbs over the
wreckage to find another-worldly land, much different from rocky
terrain's usual surroundings. The cast includes Nicholas Cage, Ryan
Reynolds, Emma Stone, Catherine Keener, Clark Duke, Cloris Leachman,
Chris Sanders, Randy Thom and Sandy Crood.
