The fourth ICE AGE film improves a bit on the first three movies! It has new characters voiced by musicians that I don't even care about including Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, and a Canadian rapper named Drake. Even though the newer movies appear to be "the same old thing", there is one thing that the first three movies didn't have....PIRATES! There's that, funnier humour, and other new voice actors including Peter Dinklage and Wanda Sykes. But, the 3-D is as bad as the 3-D used in the third movie and one of the theme songs, "We Are" by all of the film's characters in the movie, is pretty cheesy and childish. There is also one scene of confusion where Scrat gets eaten by a shark that leaves me asking: How did Scrat even make it out of it alive? Of course, the original plot (titled ICE AGE: TH4W) where the characters end up thawed out of blocks of ice and end up in the Museum of Natural History in modern-day Manhattan was scrapped, but it should be used if Blue Sky Studios will make a fifth ICE AGE movie. Overall, ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT (along with THE SIMPSONS silent short-film, THE LONGEST DAYCARE starring Maggie Simpson) is an entertaining animated summer movie!!!!
