Story Theater Movie of the Week for August 12-14
Scrat’s epic pursuit of his elusive acorn catapults him outside of Earth in the supposedly final installment of Ice Age: Collision Course (rated PG and showing this Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Aug. 12, 13, 14, at the historic Story Theater at 7 p.m. only), where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the planet. To save themselves from peril, Manny, Sid, Diego, and the rest of the herd leave their home and embark on a quest full of thrills and spills.
This is the fifth installment of the popular animal-centric period animated comedy series, and like the others this is targeted to and safe viewing for the whole family. Some mild off-color humor may give some parents some pause, but most will find it harmless silliness. Fans of the main characters will recognize the returning voice actor leads of Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, and Denis Leary, and should enjoy their back-and-forth banter.
