QUICK TAKE:
Animated action: As their environment becomes increasingly unstable due to continental drift, the mammoth, tiger, and sloth from the first three "Ice Age" movies become separated from their herd (i.e. their family and friends).
PLOT:
Scrat's (voice of CHRIS WEDGE) pursuit of his beloved acorn accidentally sets in motion a global continental drift that separates Manny the mammoth (voice of RAY ROMANO) from his wife, Ellie (voice of QUEEN LATIFAH), and daughter Peaches (voice of KEKE PALMER). Pushed out to sea on a broken-off piece of land, he is joined on his quest to get back to his family by old friends Diego, the loner tiger (voice of DENIS LEARY); Sid, the put-upon sloth (voice of JOHN LEGUIZAMO); and Sid's senile Granny (voice of WANDA SYKES).

They run afoul of some bad animals who fashion themselves pirates of the high seas. They are led by ape Captain Gutt (voice of PETER DINKLAGE) and his second-in-command, a rogue tigress named Shira (voice of JENNIFER LOPEZ). They dream only of conquest and want to add Manny and his great strength to their motley crew.

Meanwhile, Peaches uses her journey to try and get close to a jock-like young mammoth named Ethan (voice of AUBREY GRAHAM, whose stage name is DRAKE). But he runs with a cool crowd who tells her to ditch her best friend, Louis (voice of JOSH GAD), a noble possum who loves her from afar. All the while, Scrat continues his pursuit of the elusive acorn.

WILL KIDS WANT TO SEE IT?
Absolutely. The first three "Ice Age" movies have a popular following among children of a wide age range now considering the first film hit theaters in 2002.
WHY THE MPAA RATED IT: PG
For mild rude humor and action/peril.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
