Trailer Watch: The Croods

They really should have considered another name for this family…the suggestion is infantile.

The Croods

Plot Summary: A spirited young cavegirl is too adventurous for her cautious father, but as an accident reveals a beautiful paradise beyond their dreary cave, the whole family embarks on a grand adventure.
Release Date: March 22, 2013



Rating: B
Commentary: It’s richly detailed, carefully constructed and lacks the generic cast photo feeling of most animated feature poster designs.
Rating: C
Commentary: I was immediately struck by how similar the protagonist felt to Pixar’s Brave Merida. Then other animated film similarities began to creep into the production (not to mention non-animated ones). That lack of a feeling of originality makes for an uncomfortable time watching the trailer.

Oscar Chances: It may be a box office success, but it will need strong support form critics to be more than a fleeting Oscar contender.
