What to Look Out for: 
Expect to see the beloved characters from earlier films including Sid, Manny, Diego and the rest of the herd. You’ll be wowed and entertained by the movie’s state-of-the-art animation and multi-generational humor from fan favorites Ray Romano, Denis Leary, John Leguizamo, Queen Latifah, and Wanda Sykes, and newbies to the Ice Age franchise, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Nick Offerman.

The Cool Plot:
Scrat’s epic pursuit of the elusive acorn catapults him into the universe where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the Ice Age World. To save themselves, they all must leave their home and embark on a quest full of comedy and adventure, traveling to exotic new lands and encountering a host of colorful new characters.

Why Go: 
Embark on this family outing over the weekend for two reasons: the kids will be grateful and well behaved for at least four minutes (ok maybe 10), and you’ll enjoy having 2-hours of air-conditioned entertainment without sibling rivalry or someone asking you where their flip flops are. Summer at its finest.
