Neil deBuck Weasel:
The universe: A vast expanse of space and matter. It includes all that we see, and all that we know. Since the beginning of time, we have wondered how the universe came to be. A gloriously orchestrated plan? A chance series of events? Or something much, much... dumber?

There are no opening credits beyond the title. As was the case for previous films in the franchise. See more »
From the first minute, it's clear that the writers are really desperate to bring out fresh ideas, but it just comes across as purely that; desperation. It borders on the ludicrous. My kid watched on silently, but I never heard her laugh once. Not good for a comedy. It's dull. It's ridiculous. It's way over the top, even for a animated kids film with talking mammoths. It's just plain stupid. This series has reached its end. I really hope it's over but I hear there's another in the works. While there's still a modicum of profit, the machine keeps churning. It's really sad, and an insult to the first few films, which were fun and fresh. Let it die. It's begging to be put down.
