The Croods is one movie that I didn’t catch in theatres though my oldest did see it a birthday party held at the theatre. I remember making a note to take the twins one afternoon while she was in school, yet life happened. Before I knew it, it had left the theatres and I instead made a mental note to perhaps rent it later. Since then, life happened, again.
As the weather turns colder, we’re really enjoying movie nights at home. After a busy and chaotic week, we love settling in and watching a film with snacks on the weekend.
What a perfect time to get The Croods in the mail for review! Alas, it’s the perfect excuse to slow life down and make some downtime the priority.
Join the Croods on the journey of a lifetime in the epic comedy-adventure that “has the magical wonder of How To Train Your Dragon” – Jake Hamilton (Fox-TV). When their cave is destroyed, the Croods set out to explore a spectacular landscape filled with fantastic creatures, strange surprises…and a whole new world of adventure! As they begin to conquer their fear of the outside world, they discover that they have exactly what it takes to survive – each other.
Just like my oldest told us long ago, The Croods is such a good movie! Since some time had passed since she last seen it, she was again excited to watch again. I liked the story of protective parenting and the rebellious daughter. I have a feeling we’ll be there sooner than we’d like. The relationships in the film were touching and the message of trust and faith strong.
Throughout the movie, my kids sure did laugh!
Great for movie nights or as a gift, if you didn’t catch this film in theatres, now’s your chance. The purchase of the Blu-ray™ or DVD unlocks additional content on THE CROODS Colouring App, which allows children to colour their favourite characters and scenes from the film, add text and voice to the story, and then share their storybook on their TVs at home.
Also on the Blu-ray™, families can join Guy, Eep and Belt as they introduce the crazy “Croodaceous Creatures” – the striking and unique animals from the film – and much more. And for a limited time only, any purchase of the Blu-ray™ or DVD comes with a lovable Belt toy! Dun Dun Dahhh!
