The Croods (trailer)

It’s like someone looked at The Flintstones and thought, Love the prehistoric vibe, but it’s just too intellectual…

I love the insightful commentary into the lost distant mists of Cro-Magnon life, like how dads are idiots and mother-in-laws are horrible and girls love shoes. It’s so unexpected!

This trailer makes me sad. The director, Chris Sanders, is a brilliant animator who directed Lilo and Stitch and worked on several of the classic Disney cartoons. He’s been posting beautiful production drawings and storyboards from The Croods on his website ( (He also draws an amazing comic strip called Kiskaloo.) Every time I look at the production designs for the film, I think it’s going to be the best movie of the year. Then I see another trailer and think, “Yabba dabba doo.”

I’m not even going to look at the trailer. Chris Sanders has a lot of goodwill built up in advance, and I don’t want stupid marketing to spoil that.

Plus, the damn NAME. They REALLY did that? Really? Ugh.

I’m missing something- is it slang?

Are you not familiar with the word “crude”?

Oh, homophones. Right. *slaps forehead*

Let me guess.

The message of the movie is follow your dreams/heart *and* to be yourself.

Err… not available in the US. I’m surprised I’m the first one to mention this.

Just noticed your comment, but… it plays fine via a US IP address. Perhaps they changed the settings on YouTube for this upload.

I’ll admit to a slight smile at “try hiding from it in the tall dry grass”.
Yeah, it’s visually great, but…

I wish this was made by Mel Gibson, with all the characters speaking proto-indo-euorpean, graphic depictions of shoe production process, and controversy.
