I have to give 'Ice Age' a C+. This was a cute movie but it cannot compare to the first 'Ice Age' which is much better. The movie was just okay. It had a few funny parts, luckily... it was MUCH better than the last installment they did but it still wasn't the best and I think this series needs to end now before it gets worse. I didn't see it in 3D though, and I don't think 3D was necessary. The worst part for me was Nicki Minaj. Her character (her voice) was so annoying and ruined the whole movie for me. The main song was adorable though and I'm considering buying the soundtrack. I wouldn't see it again most likely but I'd recommend it if you normally like 'Ice Age' movies.

The creators of "Ice Age: Continental Drift" take insane liberties with the time span for geological processes, but do so with the best intent: side-splitting laughs. It's clearly time for Scrat to take center stage, and he gets a lot more screen time in this movie than in the previous three, to usually hilarious effect. His discovery and subsequent acts in "Scratlantis" are just the beginning of his important role in driving the underlying plot of the movie.
As usual, all the other main characters -- Manny and his family (Peaches and Ellie), Diego, and Sid (and his family, introduced for the first time, including the hilariously decrepit Granny who has more than a few tricks up her sleeve and in other places) -- play to and against their stereotypes with fervor and humor. The action can be excessive, but the interactions are interesting, and the lessons learned good.
Captain Gutt, voiced by actor Peter Dinklage (Therion from Game of Thrones) makes a great villain. Worth seeing.

Such a cute movie! I'd totally see it again! And my 4 year old son loved it as well! He always cracks up when he sees the squirl and his antics on trying to get the acorn!
