Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

If 'The Meltdown' was a misstep, then 'Dawn of the Dinosaurs' is a bust. The family dilemmas hold no weight or solid reasoning to the characters besides the typical "I'm anxious and over-protective for my child". Story is completely one note, with the core ensemble serving as hollow stereotypes of their former selves using gags in place of personality. Simon Pegg manages to make a typical stock wildcard character seem entertaining despite his many overdone (to death) jokes. There's no attempt to make a good film. The best moments - and ONLY laughs - come from the continued short side plot of Scrat the squirrel. If it weren't for this likable funny character, I'd have forgotten the entire movie. An empty experience.
