Ice Age 4 is a real crowd pleaser. The wonderful artistry, the incredible technology, and the side splitting comedy were all first rate. On the downside, adults may find the shows message, while important to adolescents experiencing peer pressure, to be a bit preachy. The story line could have been a bit more thought out because the whale who came to save the day (AKA "Precious") was unacceptable as a plot device and unbelievable. It was as if the writers just got lazy. The very best thing that came out of this was the discovery of Peter Dinklage ( the dwarf on the Game of Thrones tv series) who played the voice of Captain Gutt, the ape like villain in the movie. We will definitely be seeing, I mean hearing him again!

Usually in the fourth of any line of movies, everything is pretty rotten. However, in this movie series, the characters have experienced many life steps, and this one is no different. The squirrel was awesome, he could totally have been in the Matrix.

I took my three kids to see Ice Age 4 on opening day and they loved it. I liked it as much as they did. I am a big fan of the Ice Age movies. Perfect for the kids and enough humor for adults to love too!

The gang is back and off on another unplanned adventure. If you have kids you need to go. . .not as good as the first, but some good life lessons along the way.

I went to see this movie with my kids and they loved it as well as I. Many of the punchlines were made to be understood by the youngest of viewers to those of us adults. I would go watch this movie once again. It has a very good storyline concerning parenthood and dealing with teenagers as well from the other angle of how parents usually have their kids interest in heart. Great story.
