    Amy Biancolli San Francisco Chronicle

    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. show more

    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. show more

    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. show more

    The Hollywood Reporter

    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. show more

    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. show more

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

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

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    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. show more

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