I’ve kept narrowly missing “The Croods” — the latest family adventure from DreamWorks Animation had its world premiere at the Berlinale the morning after I left, while we also never quite managed to meet up at the Miami fest. The design of the whole project, I have to say, has never really drawn me in, and the reviews don’t have me rushing to the multiplex. (I’m also a little wary of the studio’s output right now, having recently caught up with “Rise of the Guardians” on a flight, and… yikes. Good job, Academy.)
Still, Drew found the film reasonably fetching in his B+ review, and the early box office figures suggest plenty of viewers are being diverted by the prehistoric romp this weekend. Are you among them? Give us your thoughts in the comments, and feel free to vote in the poll below.
