In the prehistoric past, a young man struggles to return home after being separated from his tribe during a buffalo hunt. He finds a similarly lost wolf companion and starts a friendship that would change humanity.

Set at the dawn of time, when prehistoric creatures and woolly mammoths roamed the earth, Early Man tells the story of Dug, along with sidekick Hognob as they unite his tribe against a mighty enemy Lord Nooth and his Bronze Age City to save their home.
A yeti named Migo is convinced that a human known only as "Small Foot" is real and has to prove to his tribe that it does exist with the help of Meechee and the S.E.S - Smallfoot Evidentiary Society.Written by

This film is similar to Monsters, Inc. (2001) and Hotel Transylvania (2012), both of which are also about a civilization of monsters that have a fear of humans and a misunderstanding of what they are, which is eventually resolved once the monsters get to know a human that entered their community by accident.

With the exception of production company credit, there are no opening credits, and the title doesn't appear on-screen until the end. There is also a brief scene about one third of the way through the ending credits. See more »
In the UK; the film was passed PG uncut for infrequent, mild bad language. The distributor then opted to make 1 seconds of cuts to remove a single use of the term 'crap' in order to lower the film to a U rating. See more »
I was surprised that the issues dealt with in this film were not only so significant and relevant but that they did it in a way that was not overly simplistic. Other than the slightly after school special ending, the movie was phenomenal. My 10yo loved it also.
The songs mostly didn't blow me away, although Common was pretty incredible (uncommon?). There were a lot of big laughs from both me and my daughter.
Gets a 10 because anything that is that funny that combines a great message in a way that both children and adults can relate to is extremely rare to encounter.
