The Croods is a prehistoric comedy adventure that follows the world's first family as they embark on a journey of a lifetime when the cave that has always shielded them from danger is destroyed. Traveling across a spectacular landscape, the Croods discover an incredible new world filled with fantastic creatures -- and their outlook is changed forever.
Meet the first modern family. Are you better off now than you were 4 million years ago? The Journey Begins Everything Begins
Continuity When the family goes out hunting for breakfast in "breakfast formation", Eep starts out on her fathers left side but is on his right side in the next shot. If it's a formation, you stay in position.
Continuity When Grug finds Douglas near the end of the movie, he has Thunk's shell in his mouth from when Thunk threw it. However, when the scene cuts to the rest of the Croods blowing their shells for Grug, Thunk has the same shell even though Douglas should currently have it in his mouth.
The first DreamWorks Animation film to be distributed by 20th Century Fox.
Ryan Reynolds, Catherine Keener, and Clark Duke all make their animated feature film debuts here.
During production, directors Kirk De Micco and Chris Sanders made a short film featuring a real sloth and presented it to DreamWorks staff at a company-wide event.
A pre-production excursion to Zion National Park in Utah inspired the creation of environments in the film's first act.
Over the years, the story transitioned from a buddy comedy featuring the characters of Grug and Guy to a family-themed tale with a host of major characters.
Clark Duke named Thunk's pet, Douglas, which is the first name of his agent.
After the credits, three prehistoric mice come on screen and play music.
The Dreamworks logo at the beginning of the film is done in the style of a prehistoric cave painting and a 3D ember floats out of the screen before the logo.
