The film keeps throwing things at you, like a colorful ape pirate (Peter Dinklage) and a fun hallucination sequence. That said, the laughs...

It's familiar, drawn-out shtick, and the humor lacks the subtlety of the first and best Ice Age, but there are some visually inventive high...

It is as comfortable and predictable as any Saturday morning cartoon, although with higher production values and a spiffier look.

Ice Age 4 Continental Drift

By lambs_one
This movie is action packed from the beginning and throughout the movie. Of course the ever present Squirrel trying to catch his beloved acorn is a side tease throughout the movie. I especially liked...

Great movie

By dahlialane
I took my 4 1/2 and 7 year old grandchildren to see Ice Age and we all loved it. We watched it in 3D. That helped make the experience superb. Great day at the movies for all. Go see it....

If you liked the first 3 then you will enjoy this one too

By Bruce_The_Almighty
This was just as good if not better than the first three (3). Also there are added main characters too which added to the depth of this movie. Was just fun seeing the gang again......

good kids' movie

I took my great nephews and we heard laughter all over the theater. I am not sure it was worth the extra money for 3D. Next time I think we will wait to see it on dvd. I spent $65 for less than an...
