"The Croods" movie quotes tell the tale of a cave family who is forced to step outside of their cave home on a wild adventure. The 3D animated family movie produced by DreamWorks Animation was created by John Cleese, Chris Sanders and Kirk DeMicco, the latter two who also wrote the screenplay and directed the film. "The Croods" was released in theaters by 20th Century Fox on March 22, 2013.

In "The Croods," father Grug (voiced by Nicholas Cage), mother Egga (voiced by Catherine Keener), daughter Eep (voiced by Emma Stone), son Thunk (voiced by Clark Duke), baby daughter Sandy (voiced by Randy Thom) and grandma Gran (voiced by Cloris Leachman) make up the Crood family. They spend nearly their entire time in their family cave, much to the displeasure of Eep, under the strict orders of Grug. This changes when an earthquake crumbles the walls of their cave forcing them into the new and uncharted lands.

The Croods meet Guy (voiced by Ryan Reynolds) who informs the family that the world is ending. Guy urges them to come along on a journey with him, something initially the sheltering father Grug is not keen on but eventually agrees to. Along the way Guy shows them fun new concepts like shoes and fire plus catches the eye of Eep, who is smitten with this new stud. Together Guy and the Croods travel across the country in hopes of survival.

If 3D animated movies are not quite your thing, there are plenty of other films in theaters at the same time including "Upside Down," "Ginger & Rosa," "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone," "Dead Man Down," "Oz: The Great and Powerful," "Jack and the Giant Slayer,"  and "Identity Thief."

    My Family, the Croods

    Video: YouTube

    Eep: "My name's Eep and this is my family, the Croods. We never had the chance to explore the outside world because of my dad's one rule: Never leave the cave."
    Grug: "New is always bad. Never not be afraid!"
    Eep: "We never had a chance to explore the outside world, but what we didn't know was that our world was about to change."

    Eep gives a quick overview of her family, the Croods. They are cave people and have spent their entire lives in a cave due to dad's rule about never leaving. This really gets to Eep who longs to experience what else is out there.

    Family Road Trip

    Video: YouTube

    Grug: "Just think, our whole family packed together on a long, slow trip across country. We'll tell stories. We'll laugh. We'll become closer as a family." [Sandy, the baby, bites Grug's face.] "Ah, get her off!"
    Ugga: "If you're not ready to challenge her then don't look her in the eye!"
    Gran: "Could you keep your big giant arms on your side of the trail?!"
    Grug: "You want me to turn this family around? Do you? Because I will turn this family around so fast!"
    Thunk: "Dad, I gotta go!"
    Grug: "Come on, you can hold it."
    Gran: "I'm not dying on an empty stomach."
    Ugga: "Ugh, we're all pretty tired."
    Grug: "We'll eat when we get there."
    Gran: "It's taking too long! I'm grabbing a snack." [Gran tries to eat Belt, the sloth, but Belt pulls a knife on Gran.]
    Guy: "Don't do that. He's not food. He's a pet, my pet."
    Gran: "What's a pet?"
    Guy: "An animal you don't eat"
    Gran: "We call those children."
    Eep: [Smitten with Guy] "Isn't this fun? We're taking our first trip together."

    While Grug is excited about a family road trip, the rest of his family is not as amused. Like a typical non-caveperson family on a road trip, someone needs to use the restroom, another is hungry and the teenage girl is focused on the hot, new boy.

    I Call Them Shoes

    Video: YouTube

    Guy: "We've gotta move faster. I call them shoes."
    Eep: [screams] "I love them! Where are my feet?"

    Eep is thoroughly intrigued when Guy shows her shoes. It's these simple pleasures that expand their horizons and make their trip that much easier.

    It's Fire

    Video: YouTube

    Eep: "What is that?"
    Guy: "It's fire!"
    Grug: "Ahh, the sun is in his hands!"
    Eep: "No, it's fire."
    Ugga: "Where did it come from?"
    Eep: "He made it."
    Grug: "Make some for me."
    Eep: "It doesn't come out of him."
    Grug: "Make it! Make it!"
    Guy: "You know, you're a lot like your daughter."
    Eep: "Oh great, now he's broken."
    Ugga: "Aww, it's a baby sun."
    Grug: "Stay back!" [steps in the fire and screams] "No, no, no, no, wait!" Thunk: "It likes me! Ahh, it's biting me!"
    Grug: "Try hiding from it in the tall, dry grass."

    When Guy and Eep introduce fire to the rest of the Croods, clearly no one has any idea what they are seeing. Thunk however finds out real quick when he is lit on fire. Grug on the other hand advises Thunk to hide from the flames in a very flammable patch of dry grass.
