Trivia

Before this film's release, DreamWorks Animation was suffering from major disaster box office returns and generally mixed word of mouth reception for Rise of the Guardians (2012). While The Croods (2013) did gross more than its $145 million budget, it still did not turn a profit for DreamWorks due to its high production and marketing costs, forcing the studio to take an $83 million write-down. This marked the first time the studio had lost money on an animated film since Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas (2003). As a result of this combined with other factors, in February 2013, the studio announced it was laying off 350 employees as part of a company-wide restructuring. If The Croods (2013) had bombed even worse than "Guardians," the studio would lay off even more employees and face the potential possibility of a bankruptcy. The Croods (2013) then opened on March 22, 2013 to glowing positive reviews and widely enthusiastic acclaim from audiences, eventually earning more than $186 million in the U.S. and over $583 million worldwide, earning its place to be sixth highest grossing film of the year (so far), besting Oz the Great and Powerful (2013), Pacific Rim (2013), Star Trek: Into Darkness (2013), and World War Z (2013). It remarkably helped DreamWorks' earnings rise higher from $162.8 million to $213.4 million in the second quarter of 2013--one of the best financial earnings ever received in the company's history.

Goofs

The direction the sun sets changes from the beginning of the movie to the end. Initially the sun sets in the direction of the Croods' hunting grounds (two knuckle warning). But, they spend the majority of the movie heading towards a mountain in the opposite direction, which is where the sun sets for the remainder of the film. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Eep: With every sun comes a new day. A new beginning. A hope that things will be better today than they were yesterday. But not for me. My name is Eep. And this is my family, the Croods. If you weren't clued in already by the animal skins and sloping foreheads, we're cavemen. Most days we spend in our cave, in the dark. Night after night, day after day. Yep, home sweet home. When we did go out, we struggled to find food in a harsh and hostile world. And I struggled to survive my family....

Cavemen to Hunter/Gatherers Now Makes Sense
22 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

I took my 3 yr old Grandson and he sat on the edge of his seat the whole movie. We tried catching fire and flowers and once got hit in the face by a bird. The 3d seems to be on a new level of excellence. I'm a teacher and I totally now understand what scientists mean from cavemen to hunterers/gatherers and I think it will help children see it too and introduce them to tar pits, saber tooth tigers, earthquakes, and a lot of science stuff. The story was great, the characters were realistic to a family, and although sometimes the dad didn't get any respect, in the end it was apparent his love for his family and theirs for him. I highly recommend this to adults and children.
