The fifth entry in the Ice Age series is a loud, lazy, laugh-starved cash grab that cynically exploits its target audience (I use the term advisedly) by serving them scraps and calling it yummy.
Toddlers will dig the shenanigans, but bewildered adults should root for the annihilation of this tapped-out series.
"Collision Course" won't alter the trajectory of history, but as an entertaining diversion, it does its job.
A perfunctory, watered-down entry in the series that feels like it should have been released on home video.
The 37th installment in the popular computer animation franchise. O.K., actually it's only the fifth feature, but what with the shorts and TV specials and video games, it feels as if there have been so, so many more.
Ice Age: Collision Course, the fifth installment in this lamentably long-lived animated franchise, is the last Ice Age movie I intend to see.
With each passing entry in the Ice Age franchise, the gap between the anarchic joy of the brief bits featuring Scrat the Squirrel and the plodding, on-the-trunk bulk of the film starring Manny the Mammoth & Family & Friends grows wider.
The best I can say of Ice Age: Collision Course is that it has nice coloring and good picture contrast.
There isn't nearly enough in "Collision Course" that feels ... inspired or energetic.
