Ice Age: Continental Drift
Even in an age of remakes, reboots, adaptations, and sequels, the fourth Ice Age movie is pushin’ it by remaking… the second Ice Age movie.
Family torn apart by geology, husband swears to get back to loved ones, travelogue of somewhat random events until reunion. That’s Ice Age: The Meltdown and it’s also Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Continental Drift may have the edge on The Meltdown, though, with a slightly better guest cast: a survey band of pirates, led by Captain Gutt (voice of Peter Dinklage). I liked the addition of Granny (voice of Wanda Sykes), Sid’s grandmother, for reasons I cannot quite explain.
Ice Age: Continental Drift is well named. Like watching actual continental drift, you find yourself wondering if there isn’t a better use of your time.
