who said old ladies can't drive?,
This review is from: Ice Age: Continental Drift (Amazon Instant Video)
Ice Age: Continental Drift is basically like the other Ice Ages movies with one exception: this time the focus on adventure and excitement is much MUCH faster, uncontrollable and flat out zannier this time around. I mean significantly crazier, haha. I'd honestly need to watch Continental Drift about 3 more times to really be able to keep up with the many assortment of animal flips, dives, jumps, rolls, leaps, etc. Don't get me wrong- there's a storyline present, but it's not always obvious. Quite often you have to wait for storyline progressing segments to occur.
When an iceberg separates the mammoth played by Ray Romano and leaves his wife (played by Queen Latifah) and their daughter on their own, the mammoth and saber-toothed cat accidentally go on a little iceberg adventure involving tons of oceanic creatures coming into the picture and causing hilarious chaos (especially the one with the crab and the sloth- I love this one in particular).
Soon after, they make landfall and find themselves trapped against an ape who claims to be the king of the ocean so fighting against him is entirely hopeless. Also, a female saber-toothed gray cat comes into the equation and reluctantly fights against (and eventually with) the mammoth, cat and sloth. However in order to join in with the gang of familiar animals we all know and love, she has to separate herself from the ape whose quest is solely on destroying our loveable talkative animals... which proves to be quite a difficult decision for the cat.
I'd say Continental Drift offers a ton of excitement, however the one problem is that many of the jokes fall flat. I'm not a Nicki Minaj fan so her presence is pretty pointless and uninteresting. I *am* however, a fan of Wanda Sykes who provides a few really hilarious lines. Unfortunately Continental Drift focuses on humor that people like Nicki Minaj, Snooki and others would prefer, and the same can be said for the rather uninspiring soundtrack we hear throughout the movie. These issues crop up more than a few times.
The squirrel's tireless search for the nut and unintentionally finding himself in several tricky situations returns yet again, and it never stops being funny (or weird) how the storyline involving the other animals suddenly stops so we can watch the mischievous squirrel go on a little adventure concerning his nut. Always entertaining watching these segments.
Overall, well it's a totally zanny adventure. This time it's crazier than usual. Enjoy.

I did not say anything about old ladies not driving. How does that even make any sense? I love this movie 5 star but old ladies sure can drive.

I'm positive the movie either mentions briefly or implies that old ladies can or can't drive somewhere in the movie as a passing joke. I wouldn't put something in the title line that doesn't make sense.
