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

Nicolas Cage's 100th film acting credit. See more »


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 »

Nice movie
24 December 2020 | by John2DSSee all my reviews

I thought it was good, maybe even pretty good. I liked the story, the visuals are pretty amazing and so is the animation -of course-, and it has great voice acting too! But the two things I didn't like was that the humor feels a bit weird and forced at times, and this also happens with the chemistry of the characters. But overrall, I think its a good movie and I recommend it
