When Charlie moves in with her and her emotionally unstable mother Evie (Nicole Kidman), India thinks the void left by her father’s death is finally being filled by his closet bloodline.

In a previously undiscovered era known as the Croodacious period, Mother Nature was still experimenting and the flora and fauna we know today have not evolved yet. At the center of this world is the Crood family, led by Grug (voiced by Academy Award® winner Nicolas Cage), an overprotective father who, like all dads, is doing all he can to hold his family together at a time when cataclysmic changes are happening. 

Together with his wife (Catherine Keener), kids (Emma Stone and Clark Duke) and mother-in-law (Cloris Leachman), Grug guides his family through this spectacular environment, full of amazing creatures, to find a new cave to call home. Along the way, they encounter Guy (Ryan Reynolds), an imaginative and resourceful newcomer who takes risks and wholeheartedly embraces the promise of tomorrow. – Rappler.com
