"The Croods" has its own kind of, ahem, "crood" charm.
Yes, there's lots of punching and smacking, fighting, rolling around, chasing, ugly faces, insults and did we say? fighting.
And that's just the Crood family of cavemen or is it cave persons? and doesn't include the prehistoric creatures.
Admittedly, I resisted seeing "The Croods." It was a case of 3D-animation feature overload. Also, I may have been wondering how "The Croods" could improve upon TV's "The Flintstones" (1960 - '66) for me the tabula rasa of prehistoric humor.
