ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT Movie Review #SMLatinas

by Migdalia Rivera

ICE AGE 4: CONTINENTAL DRIFT, rated PG, opened nationwide on July 13, 2012.

Review

I attended the ICE AGE 4: CONTINENTAL DRIFT screening with my tween and one of his classmates.  We were celebrating his classmate’s 12th birthday with a movie and cake. We had a wonderful time!

Like the previous Ice Age movies, the latest installment contains some mild rude humor and action, not surprising since it is rated PG. As an adult, I can find the humor in it, as can my tweens; however, parts of it may go over the heads of  younger children  – thank goodness!

The sassy Peaches, voiced by Keke Palmer, was fabulous. She showcased the normal ‘tude most parents face during tween/teen years. Yet, she also showed wisdom and maturity. Granted, she had to overcome several obstacles along the way – including losing her father Manny, voiced by Ray Romano, to obtain it; however, it’s good to know she learned the value of true familia / family.

Sid the Sloth, voiced by John Leguizamo, had the opportunity to reunite with family.  His Granny played by the fantastic Wanda Sykes was HE-LAIR-I-OUS. And yes I spelled it that way on purpose – figured it would help you imagine my voice in your head! :)  While Diego, voiced by Denis Leary, found true love with a spunky saber-tooth tigress named Shira, voiced byJennifer Lopez.

The movie has something for everyone: action, romance, and comedy. Overall the boys and I enjoyed Ice Age: Continental Drift and highly recommend it as a summer flick.
