1- With every sun comes a new day.
A new beginning.
A hope that things will be better today than they were yesterday.
But not for me. My name’s Eep.
And this is my family. The Croods.
If you weren’t clued already, by animal skin
and sloping forehead, we are cavemen.
Most days we spend in our cave.
In the dark.
Night after night, day after day.
Yep. Home sweet home.
When we did go out, we struggled to find food
in a harsh and hostile world.
And I struggled to survive my family.
We were the last ones around.
There used to be neighbors.
The Gorts, smashed by a mammoth.
The Horks, swallowed by a sand snake.
The Erfs, mosquito bite.
The Throgs, common cold.
And the Croods.. That’s us.
The Croods made it, because of my dad.
He was strong, and he followed the rules.
The ones painted on our cave walls:
Anything new is bad. Curiosity is bad.
Going out at night is bad.
Basically, anything fun is bad.
Welcome to my world!
But this is a story about how all that changed in an instant.
Because what we didn’t know, was that our world
was about to come to an end.
And there were no rules on our cave walls
to prepare us for that.
You’re supposed to wait for my signal, Eep.
We’ve been in that cave forever.
Three days is not forever.
It is with this family.
Eep, will you come down here?
You’re being so… so dramatic.
No, no, no, Sandy, come back here!
Remember the signal. Good girls wait for the signal.
Ugga! / As soon as I get Sandy, I’ll go back in, and you can give the signal.
No. But you’re already out now.
I am waiting for the signal, Dad!
Never mind, Thunk. Just come out.
But if you don’t give me the signal, how do I know you’re my dad?
The signal isn’t so you know it’s me. It’s so you know I wasn’t eaten by an animal.
Then why is the signal an animal noise?
I mean, doesn’t that just confuse things?
I’m still waiting for the signal.
Mom, we’re ready to leave!
It’s still early.
And you’re still fat.
I want to see some real caveman action out there!
We do this fast. We do this loud,
we do this as a family,
and never not be afraid!
Who’s up? We’ll flip for it.
– Call her in the air. – Heads!
Tails. Thunk’s in. Positions!
Okay. Thunk, go!
Come on, Thunk.
Way to go! Take it to the cave!
Release the baby!
Get ’em, Sandy, go!
Get them, Mom!
Old lady down!
Eep, avenge me!
– Eep! – Heads up!
Hey, Dad, can we eat now?
Just wait til we get home.
Eep, put on the brakes!
Good one, Dad.
Here you go, Thunk. Drink up.
– Sorry, dad. – Looks like fast food tonight!
That’s all right. I ate last week.
Two knuckle warning!
Go, go, go, go.
Come on, come on.
Darkness brings death. We know this.
The moon is full. Bath night.
– Run for your life! – You too, Mom.
I don’t want to lose my protective layer.
Mom, you’ve got ants.
See? Sandy doesn’t fuss.
– Is she still out there? – You know she hates the cave, Grug.
