Lackluster movie spin-off has rude slapstick humor.

Bright funny show, something for everyone in the family

Very, very funny show about working together and trying to find compromise. Surprised how much I laughed out loud watching the show. The animation is obviously TV quality, but very bright and dynamic colors, spot on voice acting, and some genuine emotion. Highly recommend!

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (4 ):

In the attempt to wring yet another spin-off out of the Croods franchise (following two movies and a prequel cartoon), it seems that there may be no more compelling stories left to tell. Kids who like the prehistoric world of the Croods will enjoy the fantastical animals and vibrantly colorful world in Family Tree. Otherwise, the storylines rely a lot on extended adventure scenes and there's not a ton of character development. Grown-ups wary of rude behavior and casual slapstick violence may have been willing to look the other way with the redeeming qualities of the fun original The Croods movie, but the subpar plots of Family Tree may not make the tradeoff worth it.
