Run of the mill story -excellent animation,
This review is from: Ice Age 4: Continental Drift [DVD] (DVD)
Top class animation doesn't make up for a weak storyline in the latest Ice Age movie but it probably won't matter to the makers. After all it's the fourth movie in the series so they must be doing something right.
There are some big names doing the voices, Denis Leary, Ray Romano, Queen Latifah, Sean William Scott and even J-Lo! So the budget must have been pretty big and the producers must be confident of still making a profit.
The story involves the characters we are familiar from for the previous movies being separated, as the Earth's tectonic plates start shifting suddenly. Will they all be reunited? You'll never guess!
One part of the gang meets a band of pirates on their travels and this makes it harder for them to reunite with the others. That's about it really.
Wanda Sykes has all the best lines as Sid's slightly bothered long lost Granny
