Ice Age: Continental Drift

By ROBERT HAM
The world didn't need a fourth Ice Age movie, let alone one rendered for 3-D and released in the swelter of a pretty hot summer film calendar. But when the first three installments of this computer-animated series have raked in nearly $2 billion in box office receipts, there was no way 20th Century Fox was going to let this cash cow dry up. So, why not slap together a half-assed storyline about the gang of prehistoric creatures trying to survive the separation of the world's continents and dodge a gang of pirates led by a snarling monkey? And while you're at it, why not throw in a little coming-of-age love story for a young woolly mammoth, and comic relief via a trash-talking elderly sloth voiced by Wanda Sykes? The more troubling question of this film is how its intended audience of youngsters will withstand the overwhelming deluge of imagery and antics pushed, quite literally, right into their faces. Ice Age: Continental Drift provides its audience with scant few moments to catch its collective breath before the next whiplash-inducing set piece.
