Ice Age: Continental Drift

Genre: Animation; Starring: Queen Latifah, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo, Ray Romano, Chris Wedge; Director: Steve Martino; Release Date Wide: 07/06/2012; Runtime (in minutes): 94; Distributor: 20th Century Fox Film Corporation

A mild bounce back from the dinosaur doldrums of the last Ice Age movie. When the earth?s surface splits apart, Manny the family-guy mammoth (Ray Romano), Diego the saber-toothed tiger grouch (Denis Leary), and Sid the infantile sloth (John Leguizamo) get stranded on an ice floe in Ice Age: Continental Drift. They?re trying to get back home — a dreary plot, but the film keeps throwing things at you, like a colorful ape pirate (Peter Dinklage) and a fun hallucination sequence. That said, the laughs are starting to feel prehistoric. B
