Blog #162: Movie Review: Ice Age: Continental Drift

The fourth installment of the Ice Age franchise came out this week.  I really love the original, as well as that third one (the second one was okay, but nowhere near as good).  The fourth one might be my favorite one yet.

Spoilers ahead.

Following an argument with his teenage daughter, Peaches, Manny along with Diego and Sid get trapped on an iceberg as the continent begins to break apart.  Ellie, Peaches, the possums, and Peaches’ friend Louis the molehog flee from the disappearing landmass, trying to get to the land bridge to a new continent while Peaches is dealing with very typical teenager trying to fit in issues, which are entertaining, but predictable.

Fortunately, Manny, Diego, and Sid, along with Sid’s grandmother (voiced brilliantly by Wanda Sykes) have some far more entertaining adventures.  At sea, adrift on an iceberg, they encounter an iceberg ship captained by an ape named Gutt along with his first officer, the female smilodon (cat) Shira.

As always, Scrat provides some hilarity of his own in his never-ending search for acorns.

This movie is full of great action, hysterical jokes, and all the heart of the previous movie.  I highly recommend it.

Thanks for reading!
