Croods: The New Age (Croods 2) opened in theaters on Thanksgiving. The warnings for staying home and practicing social distancing were clear but there would be those who ventured out and Croods 2 was ready to receive them. A Thanksgiving film, is a long tradition with my family. In fact, I usually load up all the kids and we head to the theater and then arcade. Universal pictures realized that they had to reduce to normal wait time and bring the film to Premium video on demand earlier than expected.
Premium video on demand is not a bad thing as it allows you to see film in the comfort of your home and save money in the process. I suspect that this will be part of the “new normal”. On December 18th, get ready to bring “The Croods” home.
Gather around the television and follow the prehistoric family as they learn a new way of living from the Bettermans. Hope (Leslie Mann), Phil (Peter Dinklage) and Dawn (Kelly Marie Tran) Betterman are more hip, progressive green family that definitely do things differently. If you remember in the first Croods, the father, Grug (Nicholas Cage) lived by a strict set of rules and was not open to change. Guy (Ryan Reynolds) taught him that change can be good and letting go is healthy. Croods 2 shows what happens next.
You can't help but fall in love with the whimsical, colorful garden and the comedic scenes. Get ready to laugh and cheer as the “Thunder Sisters” show their girl power and the importance of team work.
