This riotously spectacular 3D animation about a Stone Age family plays havoc with prehistory.
It’s the Inglourious Basterds of evolution, dementedly inventing new ancient species in every scene (my favourite: the Piranhakeets). Although it labours too much over its moral, and the characters aren’t nearly as beautifully developed as in, say, The Incredibles, its feverish energy will entertain you into submission.
The Croods | Directed by Kirk de Micco, Chris Sanders, (USA 2013) animation with Nicolas Cage, Ryan Reynolds, Emma Stone. Starts March 21
