#Movie Review – Setting Sail for Family Fun With Ice Age: Continental Drift on Blu-ray & DVD 12/11

Ahoy, matey! Want to set sail with a fun family film this holiday season?


Blue Sky Studios unveils a brand new chapter in one of the most successful film franchises of all time. Bringing together the visually epic and the emotionally powerful, ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT sets sail on Blu-ray™ 3D, Blu-ray™, and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment on December 11, just in time for the holidays.


Sub-zero heroes Manny, Diego, and Sid embark upon a high-seas adventure after their continent is set adrift. Using an iceberg as a ship, they encounter sea creatures and battle pirates as they try to reunite with their herd. In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny, and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home.


Showcasing the coolest cast of all-time, ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT, stars Ray Romano (“Everybody Loves Raymond”), John Leguizamo (Moulin Rouge), Denis Leary (“Rescue Me”), Queen Latifah (The Secret Life of Bees), Seann William Scott (Planet 51), Josh Peck (“Drake & Josh”), and Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead). Joining the familiar Ice Age family for this newest franchise installment are some of the entertainment world’s brightest talents including Jennifer Lopez (“American Idol”), Aziz Ansari (“Parks and Recreation”), Peter Dinklage (“Game of Thrones”), Wanda Sykes (Monster-in-Law), Heather Morris (“Glee”), and hip hop sensations Nicki Minaj and Drake.


We saw ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT in theaters and loved it, but had a great time this week checking out this fun family film from the comfort of our living room. We laughed even more than when we watched it on the big screen. In this latest adventure our familiar Ice Age friends are back and Manny, Diego, Sid and have grown up since their last adventure. When they are separated from Manny’s family, they set sail to get reunited and make some new friends along the way. The kids particularly loved Granny and her pet “Precious” and the poor squirrel chasing his nut always crack them up too.


Overflowing with treasure for the whole family to enjoy, ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT 3D is filled to the bow with bonus material including an all new coloring app with enhanced Blu-ray features, interactive features such as “Party with a Pirate!” mode, sing and dance along songs, music videos, deleted scenes, exclusive featurettes, and more! In addition, fans can watch the film in sign along mode with American Sign Language interpretation from actor Sean Berdy (“Switched at Birth”).

Ice Age Continental Drift is rated PG. There are a few scenes of action that might be a little intense for really young or really sensitive viewers, but it is safe for all ages. My 3 year old and 8 year old loved it, and while the action was enough to make my little man hop up on my lap, he did great and loved the film.


Overall, our whole family loved Ice Age: Continental Drift. This is a fun family comedy and a great film to watch together this holiday season. Whether you saw the film in theaters or this is your first time watching,  ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT would make a great gift for any movie lovers young or old on your list.


Look for ICE AGE: CONTINENTAL DRIFT in stores near you on December 11th and pre-order from Amazon here.  Watch for our coverage of our upcoming Ice Age screening party with some of our family and friends coming soon!

[…] Celebrating the Holidays w/ an #IceAge4 #Movie Screening Party & #GreatValue December 12, 2012 Posted by Kim · If you’ve been reading 2 Kids and a Coupon for awhile, you know we LOVE movies!  My husband and I even got married in a movie theater and we’ve passed our love of film onto our kids. While blogging is lots of long hours for not so great pay, there are a few nice perks and one of those is checking out all the latest and greatest movies. We’ve been honored to attend movie screening premieres in person, and to also host some super fun movie events right here at home. This past week we were thrilled to have been invited to host a special screening party for Ice Age: Continental Drift. The 4th film in this hit franchise we saw and loved this kid friendly flick when it was in theaters, and it was great to watch and enjoy it in person again with all our family together.
