Peter DeSève designed a number of animals for the film that never made it to the final cut: eohippus (prehistoric horses), a large horselike animal that Sid would have ridden, a giant squid and a number of prehistoric sharks that would have nearly eaten Granny in the scene in which she takes a bath in the ocean.

What, what was that? Ellie, did you hear that?
I heard it, Manny; whatever it is, it's miles away.
Peaches, you all right? Where is she, no teenager is ever up early.

During the first half of the closing credits, the characters get together and sing "We are Family". However, Sid's granny sings by accident "ham and cheese". As each character sings, footage of their voice actor in the recording booth can be seen. See more »
Ice Age: Continental Drift is funny, and i had fun watching it and looked forward to seeing what this weird herd is up to now.
It is the fourth installment of the Ice Age series and the seventh CG production of Blue Sky Studios and the first sequel not to be directed by Carlos Saldanha who will be directing RIO part 2.
What I love must about this flick is the introduction of a partner for Diego; a white tiger lady is added ladies and gentlemen. The movie also has the whole fun of the old clichés, which I seem not to be tired of seeing. It also showcases cool CG effect; I loved the water effect most.
The plot was educational (as long as you know it is bogus) due to Scrat's (Squirrel) hunt for acorns he triggers the break-up of the world continent into the continents as we know them today, which cause Manny to lose his family.
Manny, Diego, and Sid embark upon another adventure to find his family, after their continent is set adrift. Using an iceberg as a ship, they encounter sea creatures and battle pirates as they explore a new world, and learn why it is good to be part of a family herd, than being part of a group where one person leads and other follow.
Well, the new directors weren't that bad, as the movie did have some fun screenplays and events that you will be thrilled to see. As we watch this creatures move from the Ice Age to the present age the pictures tell stories that are kinda informative and entertaining.
Hey! I must have missed that geography class when they taught that Scrat the squirrel created the whole world.
Although this is not the best addition to the Ice Age series it was fun to watch. And the movie kinda opens doors to new additional sequels.
But I hope Blue Sky won't bother making any more.
