Still searching for a place to settle down after the cataclysmic events of The Croods (2013), the overprotective prehistoric patriarch, Grug, leads his family to the great unknown. Hoping for the best in an increasingly dangerous world, while trying to come to terms with Eep and Guy's budding romance, Grug stumbles upon a secluded Eden of plenty, containing everything that they have been seeking. However, there is a catch. This verdant heaven on Earth is already occupied by the significantly more evolved Bettermans: Phil, Hope, and their daughter, Dawn. Now, as tensions boil over between the antagonistic clans, a new menace threatens the future of both families. Can the Croods and the Bettermans put aside their differences to fight the common enemy, and live to tell the tale? Written by Nick Riganas

In the movie, Grug talks about how he hasn't seen a banana for years, since he was a 'cub' - this is in fact a pretty huge issue for him when he comes across bananas in this movie. However in the first movie, Guy hands Grug a banana (while wearing a bunch of bananas on his head) when they're getting to know each other better. Grug promptly throws the banana on the ground in anger before slipping on it. This happens at approximately 52min 32sec into the first movie. See more »


Grug: Hey, everyone, you'll never guess what I just...
[gets attacked by the others]
Ugga: Sorry, honey! We thought you were a predator trying to kill us.
Grug: Never apologize for an effective kill circle.

Funny and good family movie
26 November 2020 | by tegancaudleSee all my reviews

I liked the movie, I thought it was funny and has humor in it that everyone of all ages can enjoy, just an overall good movie. The plot is good and not confusing. I would rate it an 8/10 but there was just a lot of forced humor and it was kind of strange at the end. The story line was a little off from the first movie but I think that is fine because it was just little things. Definitely not as good as the first movie just because the end almost ruined the whole movie for me, it was extremely cheesy, but that is just my opinion, I am sure that if I were a child I would say differently.

I liked the humor in this film, I was laughing pretty much the whole way through it. I liked the plot and how the Bettermans and the Croods have to eventually work as a team. I liked some of the modern references and how they took modern stuff and old caveman stuff and combined it to make an excellent movie.

I couldn't emphasize this more, the end was very strange. I liked everything else about the movie though. I was an overall good family movie.
