Ryan Reynolds spices up THE CROODS


Dreamworks’ latest animated family adventure “The Croods,” (3D) takes us along on their journey where the trek opens up to a lot of discovery. The Croods headed by their patriarch Grug (Nicolas Cage) along with his wife Ugga (Catherine Keener) and kids Eep (Emma Stone) and Thunk (Clark Duke) and baby Sandy plus a feisty Gran (Cloris Leachman) have always been under the shelter of dark caves, always rushing inside when the sun starts to set. With any journey comes discovery – and “The Croods’” trek provides many “firsts,” including: the first family road trip, fire and shoes, as well as the first pet, the first cell phone …plus: the first joke, the first pair of sunglasses, and even the first mid-life crisis.

A very important milestone of their firsts include their first encounter with Guy (voiced by Ryan Reynolds), a guy whose ideas encourage the Croods to discover and invent new things on their own. Guy’s inventive ideas ultimately expose all of the Croods to new possibilities and to a new world – a place, he says, that “has more suns in the sky than you can count, and where things are better.”
