The violence is mild, the innuendos are few, and the jokes are many. It's a pretty safe bet. A.W.

Details Release Date: Jul 06, 2012; Length: 94 Minutes; Genre: Animation; With: Queen Latifah, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo, Ray Romano and Chris Wedge; 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
