More Info:
  • Drew Taylor

    Handsomely animated and features a story that, while hopelessly familiar, at least seems to be part of a whole. Also, there are pirates. So there's that.

  • Sean OConnell

    The fourth Ice Age freshens up the 10-year-old franchise by shunning easy ­pop-culture jokes and embracing its weird side.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Owen Gleiberman

    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.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    Gutt is a wonderful villain, something the franchise has lacked, and even performs an original musical number - an Ice Age first, if I'm not mistaken. Dinklage has a sinister voice, and a subtle way of expressing the character's sillier moments.

  • Betsy Sharkey

    In Continental Drift, the filmmakers have gone a little crazy too, but in a good way. Smack dab in the middle of things there's a big Broadway-style number involving pirates.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Megan Lehmann

    It's familiar, drawn-out shtick, and the humor lacks the subtlety of the first and best Ice Age, but there are some visually inventive high points.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    It is as comfortable and predictable as any Saturday morning cartoon, although with higher production values and a spiffier look.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    It's all well done and cute and forgettable.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • A.O. Scott

    Continental Drift, like its predecessors, is much too friendly to dislike, and its vision of interspecies multiculturalism is generous and appealing.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Olly Richards

    Old friends and new voice talent will delight kids with a never-ending love for the most undemanding animation out there. A megabucks franchise drifts on.

    Empire Full Review
  • Paul Bradshaw

    Weighed down with daft new characters and an overstretched story, the prehistoric saga is looking a bit old. On the other hand, it still has Scrat –which is all any movie really needs…

    Total Film Full Review
  • Sam Adams

    Continental Drift feels less like an extension of a theatrical franchise than an episode of a middling TV cartoon, lolling around on territory that's already been settled. Jokes are recycled so frequently, it's as if comedy writing was eating a hole in the ozone layer.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Kyle Smith

    At best, the film serves up mild chuckles, with occasional cute jokes.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Amy Biancolli

    The less-good stuff: the pirates, who are so blandly and predictably drawn that they sap all the personality out of Peter Dinklage (as an ugly ape skipper), which isn't easy. And the plot, which just barrels forward with very few surprises.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Claudia Puig

    Much of the action in Ice Age: Continental Drift takes place on an iceberg fashioned into a seagoing vessel. No one seems to be piloting the boat, which is an apt metaphor for the film.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Tom Russo

    It makes you wonder if the series' animators, who took time out for "Rio" just before this, aren't so secretly yearning to sail different creative waters.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    It's not very funny, but your kids might like it.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Roger Ebert

    Watching this film was a cheerless exercise for me. The characters are manic and idiotic, the dialogue is rat-a-tat chatter, the action is entirely at the service of the 3-D, and the movie depends on bright colors, lots of noise and a few songs in between the whiplash moments.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Vadim Rizov

    Quality evidently not being a concern, Ice Age: Continental Drift is nonetheless a slight improvement over its predecessor.

    Boxoffice Magazine Full Review
  • Peter Debruge

    Now, the action takes to the sea, where pirates, original songs and a minx-like Jennifer Lopez character make for harmless diversion.

    Variety Full Review
  • David Fear

    A business-as-usual slog.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Thoroughly, and disappointingly, pedestrian.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • Peter Bradshaw

    With the fourth film, the Ice Age family animation franchise is looking almost extinct.

    The Guardian Full Review
  • Alison Willmore

    A sugary jumble of goofy voices, hyperkinetic action scenes and rote plot elements that rolls forward just enough to get us to the de rigueur pop song that plays over the closing credits.

    Movieline Full Review
  • Elizabeth Weitzman

    Something has surely gone wrong when there is not a single moment in Ice Age: Continental Drift that equals the four-minute "Simpsons" short that precedes it.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Mary Pols

    The frenetic pace masks an emptiness; this Ice Age is just a collection of slapstick moments and fisticuffs.

    Time Full Review
  • Kimberley Jones

    Amusing but never rousing, this fourth installment in the Ice Age cartoon franchise comes fretted with freezer burn.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • Joe Williams

    With this unfunny fourth installment, the "Ice Age" franchise has skidded so far into kiddie land that adults who tread there risk extinction.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Jaime N. Christley

    Caters almost exclusively to the remedial, Duplo Blocks demographic, leaving parents and guardians bored to distraction.
