Ice Age Continental Drift

Posted on July 15, 2012


Ice Age Continental Drift –  Scrat’s love of acorns causes the ice to split leaving Manny, Sid, and Diego on one iceberg and the rest of the gang on another.  They have several challenges as the ocean storms and surges, trying to meet up again.  The biggest is when they’re captured by pirates.  The captain of the ship, a huge monkey named Gutt, who bears a faint resemblance to Steven Tyler, is one bad boy.  Diego gets to tangle with another saber-toothed tiger (Jennifer Lopez) and totally enjoys it.  Peaches, Manny and Ellie’s daughter,  learns a big lesson on knowing who your real friends are.  Wanda Sykes is the feisty granny pawned off by on Sid by his parents.  She helps save the day with her friend Precious, and Precious knows how to make an entrance.  Scrat comes across the motherlode of acorns and messes up again.

 It’s a pretty fun movie, all about family or ham and cheese.  A good way to spend a hot or a rainy summer day.   Interesting how lots of adults were there without kids.  There was a short beforehand which featured the Ayn Rand School for Tots.  Gotta love that.
