And with that Simpsons short, ‘The Longest Daycare’ playing before the movie, it even offers some bang for the buck. Its improved in almost every way possible from its previous instalment.

Also added to the mix is Sids crazy grandma, abandoned by Sids family who reunites with Sid just for Search for feature articles the sole goal of leaving her for Sid to take care of. The gangs quest leads them into conflict with a pretty unlikely foe, a group of pirates led by an ape named Captain Gutt, played by Peter Dinklage. While we weren’t quite sure just how that was going to play out; the pirate angle does make for some pretty spectacular and over the top action sequences as well as some inventive visual gags. We never did notice it on the poster at first... but the pirate flag on the raft is actually a skunk, which made us laugh out loud in the theater. The humour is still very fun but its not especially smart or fresh. Sid and Scrat both do their shtick to try and draw the laughs and for the most part, they succeed although the formula does feel a little tired this time around. The movie reminds us of another animated film from earlier in the year, ‘The Lorax’ (Read our review of ‘The Lorax here) in which they both seemed to play the cards too safe and didnt take the risks necessary to elevate the story to another level.

Somehow, it feels like there was a checklist involved in creating this film. More of Scrats antics? Check! Characters meant purely for comic relief? Check! Cute little animal creatures. Check! And so on. The movie is still cute and funny enough to fulfil any movie hungry kid, but the trick will be to reinvent the franchise with the next movie (its been strongly hinted there will be a fifth one) without altering what made the first few movies so memorable to that target audience in the first place. Overall, ‘Continent Drift’ is still a very enjoyable movie and will no doubt satisfy many little kids looking for some fun at the movies, but it loses points for that little bit of staleness that has crept in. ‘Ice Age 4: Continental Drift’ opens in theatres 12 July You might also like Paid Distribution ‘A Good Day to Die James D’Arcy: Topless women cheer Movie Listings for Feb.
