Animated Adventure Comedy - Like the first three films in the series, this is an animated comedy
aimed at the entire family. There is a bit more of a musical leaning
this time with the addition of a number of voice actors with musical
background, such as Jennifer Lopez, Keke Palmer, Drake, Nicki Minaj,
and Heather Morris, for roles large and small. There are some scary
images that could be intense for very young children, but on the
whole this will be safe viewing for all audiences.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 101 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:As expected, FANTASTIC REVIEWS FROM THE KIDS!
TEENS:Six of the seven males loved it, as did two-thirds of the females. None disliked it, so your probability of enjoying it is very high.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:These are great reviews from the ladies. Most loved it. One of the two males loved it and one rated it "Good/Average," which is still quite good for this type of movie.
ADULTS:For a kids animated movie, these are great reviews. Most enjoyed it very much or even loved it with no one rating it low. "ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT" IS A GREAT FILM FOR THE ENTIRE FAMILY!
Scrat's nutty pursuit of the cursed acorn, which he's been after since the dawn of time, has world-changing consequences - a continental cataclysm that triggers the greatest adventure of all for Manny (Ray Romano), Diego (Denis Leary) and Sid (John Leguizamo). In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny, and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home.
