Plot summary

What is The Croods: A New Age movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Croods: A New Age" movie plot summary.

A flashback shows the death of Guy's parents when he was a kid. As they drown in tar, they tell him to find somewhere called 'tomorrow'. He goes on a long journey and meets a young Belt (Chris Sanders) before taking him along for the ride.
The Croods, along with Guy (Ryan Reynolds) and their pets Chunky and Douglas, are still searching for a place to settle down, all the while surviving many dangerous creatures along the way. Grug (Nicolas Cage) is repeatedly annoyed at Eep (Emma Stone) and Guy's blossoming romance. As Grug walks off in anger, he soon comes across a giant wall and leads the whole pack to them. They are soon caught in a net and are released by the owners of the land, a couple called the Bettermans, Phil (Peter Dinklage) and Hope (Leslie Mann). The Bettermans welcome the Croods to their giant tree-home as house guests, where they meet their daughter and Guy's old friend, Dawn, who immediately befriends Eep. Life with the Bettermans becomes degrading for Grug due to the Bettermans soon reveal themselves to be technologically advanced, better-mannered, and visibly condescending toward the Croods, believing that Guy is better off with them and hatch a scheme to get Guy to leave the Croods. Phil eventually takes Grug to his secret man-cave, a sauna-like place behind some waterfalls, where he manipulates him into believing Guy should leave their pack.
Eep and Dawn soon use Chunky to escape the land and jump their wall for a joyride that ends with a bee stinging Dawn and having her hand swell up. When Eep takes her back home, Guy, upon finding out, chides her for her recklessness, ending with him insensitively calling her a 'cave-girl'. At dinner, tensions rise between the parents, Guy and Eep, especially when Dawn's swelling is revealed. Having enough, the Croods decide to leave in the morning, but Guy decides to stay after he and Eep have a falling out. Soon, the land is attacked by "Punch Monkeys" (monkey-sized but with human-like strength) on account of Grug and Ugga eating a bunch of bananas the Bettermans hoard around their land and have forbidden Grug from eating. Phil reveals he sends the Punch Monkeys the bananas every day so that they leave the Bettermans alone and since Grug and Ugga ate them, the Punch Monkeys get upset and kidnap Grug, Phil, and Guy and take them to their homeland.
