Cool off with the new Ice Age: Collision Course

ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE

That pesky squirrel Scrat is at it again, and his quest for his precious acorn jeopardizes the lives of Manny and the rest of his Ice Age Family. His unknowingly cosmic damage he is creating for the love of his acorn puts all on Earth, including the beloved wooly mammoths and their friends all at risk. For those of you new to the Ice Age films you will find humor with a touch of the traditional family moral embedded within the story. Adults and children of all age ( and when I mean all ages I’m talking about even my 2-year-old) will love every minute.

ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE

Without giving too much of the movie away, Manny (the voice of Ray Romano) and his wife Ellie (the voice of Queen Latifah) are preparing their daughter Peaches for her upcoming marriage to her laid back and seemingly not so smart fiancé, Julian.

ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE

This was a little familiar for Ray Romano whose daughter had just left their home as well and getting a chance to listen to Ray and hearing how similar he is to Manny with his fatherly love and humor was refreshing to know how similar he is to that large woolly mammoth you see on screen. Julian’s easygoing nature makes him a lovable character whose fun-loving nature doesn’t make him the popular choice for their daughter Peaches, as their plan is to eventually is to venture out on their own.

ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE

So many fun characters are introduced into the film. If your child loves dinosaurs, especially the flying ones, they will love the large prehistoric dino creatures, the Dakotaraptors or also called “Dino-Birds” in Collision Course. Their dysfunctional family made up of the Dad, Gavin, his strong and by far his favorite child, Gertie, and sweet, sensitive son Roger. They escape the dino world chasing the hero Buck (as seen in previous Ice Age movies) to secure their dino egg that Buck had saved and stolen from them. While Buck finds his way back to the ice age, he finds the herd and tries desperately to help them live the deadly meteors that are showering the earth in destruction.

ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE

All friends, including Sid voiced by the amazing John Leguizamo, the ground sloth, set out on an epic adventure to help stop the flaming balls of fire from crashing down on them. Even with his heavy lips and stuttering, he is an easy favorite of the crowd. While always seeming to get in the way, this little ground sloth steals your heart. And while he may be let down again and again while trying to find true love, you might be surprised that even he can find a soul mate.

ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE

The humor in collision course is a laugh out loud funny that will even make you smile when you think about it days later. My girls are still telling a few jokes (warning: they may be a little dirty, like the potty kind) but will offer as good conversations for many car rides to come. Most of our laughs came from Sid’s Grandmother, “Granny.” Wanda Sykes never disappoints in her role as Granny and has you giggling the entire movie.

ICE AGE: COLLISION COURSE

With new characters, and new places to explore, Ice Age: Collision Course will give you a reason to cool off in the summer heat. Find out if the herd can be saved and if Sid really does find true love.
