The first prehistoric family is ready for another rocking adventure! The Croods have survived fanged beasts, natural disasters, and even young love, but now they must face their biggest challenge yet: another family! In search of a new home, the Croods discover a walled-in paradise created by the sophisticated Betterman family (emphasis on the "better"). As they try to coexist, the differences between the two families escalate into a full-blown feud, but when a new threat forces both families to embark on an epic adventure, they must all learn to work together...or they'll all go extinct! Nicolas Cage, Emma Stone, Ryan Reynolds, and Peter Dinklage star in this hilarious animated comedy for the whole family!

Critics Consensus: Another agreeable outing for the titular prehistoric clan, The Croods: A New Age may be the missing link for parents between more elevated family-friendly fare.

Prehistoric cartoon sequel has slapstick, rude humor.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Croods: A New Age is the sequel to 2013's The Croods, which centered on a family of Neanderthals trying to survive the elements, including teen daughter Eep (voiced by Emma Stone). This film focuses on Eep's romance with Guy (Ryan Reynolds) and her dad Grug's (Nicolas Cage) worries about losing his daughter. While the clan faces all kinds of perilous moments, most of them are over-the-top and slapstick -- fending off wild beasts is just another day in this family's life. But as the story goes on, more threats emerge that could scare littler viewers, like monkeys with glowing eyes and a giant ape monster that intends to eat some of the main characters. Some kids may also find the "punch monkey" characters -- which communicate by slugging each other -- hilarious and try to imitate them. Characters use mild insults ("dumb," "twits," etc.), there's some potty humor, and a bee sting makes one character act like she's drunk. Characters kiss, and one male is shown shirtless. Parent-child separation is referenced during a flashback, and the death of a boy's family is implied. This film strays even further from actual prehistory than the first one did, but some tidbits could prompt discussions about human evolution and migration, and there are clear themes of courage, teamwork, and the importance of being yourself. There are also some great "girl power" moments when Eep and the other female characters have to rescue the menfolk.
