Fox Home Entertainment sent me a DVD screener for Ice Age: Continental Drift. I saw Ice Age 4 at the theater with my kids last summer. We enjoyed it at the cinema, but I think the animated movie is more entertaining on DVD. The main reason is because we could laugh loudly and talk freely while watching the film at home. Ice Age: Continental Drift is available now on DVD and Blu-ray.
Like the previous Ice Age movies, the fourth film is fun and hilarious for kids. And yes, Scrat is still funny and entertaining. I’ve already reviewed Ice Age: Continental Drift on my dad blog last summer. So in this DVD review, I’m going to focus on the DVD extras on my screener disc.
Ice Age: Continental Drift Special Features
Ice Age: The Story So Far
This is a good feature to watch if you or your kids have not seen any of the Ice Age movies. It includes scenes from the previous three animated movies.
Whale of a Tale: Drifts, Rifts, Beasties and Myths
This is an informative special about the animals the Ice Age characters are based on. According to the special feature, elements of the creatures are real. However, there are quite a bit of embellishments to make the characters funny.
Gutt’s Sing-Along Shanty Shimmy Shake
In this bonus feature, you can sing a long with Gutt (bad guy in the movie). The tune is catchy and fun for kids.
“We Are” Extended Music Video
As far as I can tell, this is a real music video.
“Chasing the Sun” by The Wanted Music Video
Another real music video by a real band.
“The Sid Shuffle” Dance Along
In this bonus feature, Sid teaches us how to dance and rap.
Ice Age: Continental Drift Synopsis
History’s greatest heroes return for the most outrageously funny and entertaining Ice Age adventure in two million years. When Scrat’s acorn antics cause a cataclysmic crack-up, Manny (Ray Romano), Sid (John Leguizamo) and Diego (Denis Leary) go where no herd has gone before — on a high-seas quest aboard a floating iceberg. But a menagerie of misfit pirates are determined to shiver their timbers and capsize their journey home. Join a boat-load of lovable new characters (voiced by Jennifer Lopez, Aziz Ansari and Peter Dinklage) for original songs, spectacular animation and heartwarming family fun.
