Consensus: Ice Age: Continental Drift 3D has moments of charm and witty slapstick, but it often seems content to recycle ideas from the previous films.

...everything I liked about the original movie has been worn down.

These films are generally good at being good enough, and the fourth installment, Ice Age: Continental Drift, doesn't deviate from that modest tradition.

This is the low-temperature family romp that Happy Feet 2 should have been.

Yes, this is the part where I outsource my critical role to my children. If you are the kind of person who (quite understandably) abhors this particular gimmick, you may wish to stop reading now.

In the end, this latest "Ice Age" movie is about as surprising and unpredictable as a glacier. And not much more fun.

[Ice Age 4] is fun, whacky and snappy entertainment from a madcap cast of characters that's not too scary (even in 3D) for the littlies to enjoy, and with just enough funny lines to keep their parents entertained.

The best bits are basic and all but voiceless: those Scrat-intensive set pieces, still inspiredly squirrelly if much too far apart.

Whenever I watch an "Ice Age" movie, I understand how my mother felt whenever I zoned out in front of the television after school.

The swashbuckling stuff is boisterous, if dated, and proves far more engaging than a tedious sub-plot involving Manny's rebellious teenage daughter.

This unnecessary fourquel was obviously conceived to make (more) money only, with an uninspired story that is dull, unfunny and full of the lamest clichés about… More

Funny, cute, but very forgettable. Plus, I literally lost count if this is the 4th Ice Age or 5th. How many are there? Are they gonna continue to kill a dying… More

Sure, the creator's are struggling more and more with adding even more supposedly quirky characters, when the first film worked so great with just four.… More

Well, this was cute, but not anywhere near as good as the first two. It had some really funny chuckle moments, but they were far and few between. Enough now. I… More

And the animated family films just keep on coming. Now we join the herd which is ridiculously huge by this point, just as the continents split and families are… More
