Croods 2, The : Movie Review

The Croods 2 (2020) - Movie PosterNo one would call it a huge leap on the evolutionary ladder, but the animated sequel "The Croods: A New Age" is slightly funnier than its serviceable 2013 predecessor. That movie followed a family of cave persons - whose patriarch was the lunkheaded but big-hearted Grug (voiced by Nicolas Cage) - as they left the safety of the rocky alcove they called home and, thanks to the creativity of an outsider, Guy (Ryan Reynolds), embraced more innovative ways of thinking.

"The Croods: A New Age", directed by Joel Crawford, accelerates the Crood family’s clash with modernity. The clan stumbles into a verdant utopia that’s a cross between Shangri-La and Gilligan's Island. This paradise is maintained by a family called the Bettermans, headed by Hope (Leslie Mann) and Phil (Peter Dinklage), who wear new-age garb and snobbishly show off their advanced ideas, like private rooms, windows and fruit baskets.
