With its fifth feature-length adventure, this franchise continues its preposterous journey at full tilt. As before, it's the zippy writing, lively vocal work and colourful animation that hold the interest. The story is merely a framework on which the cast and crew can hang a series of rapid-fire jokes, pop culture references and nonsensical action sequences. And it's still mindless fun.
After their previous escapades, the expanding herd of prehistoric critters is living a happy life together, thinking about love. Mammoths Manny and Ellis (voiced by Ray Romano and Queen Latifah) are struggling with the idea that their daughter Peaches (Keke Palmer) has fallen for the too-cheerful Julius (Adam Devine). Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo) has just been dumped and feels like he'll never find a partner. And tigers Diego and Shira (Denis Leary and Jennifer Lopez) worry that their violent nature will make them terrible parents. Then suddenly there's a bigger issue to worry about: a giant asteroid is heading for Earth, threatening them with extinction. With the help of nutty weasel Buck (Simon Pegg), they come up with an idea to save the planet. They also discover a magical place called Geotopia, ruled by the groovy Shangri Llama (Jesse Tyler Ferguson).
Yes, the plot is utterly insane, especially as it is driven by the antics of franchise star Scrat, who discovers a flying saucer in the ice, activates it and heads into space, where his acorn-hunting antics trigger all sorts of mayhem back on Earth. But then this series has never had anything to do with science or biology, throwing random animals together (the dinosaurs make another appearance) for comical value while cranking up whatever suspense the writers can think of to add some momentum. They also of course pack scenes with sweet "family values" moments, plus a sideswipe at climate change deniers who refuse to acknowledge the possibility of impending doom.

Proceeds to go to the Hispanic Federation's Proyecto Somos Orlando.
A dream team like no other, Jennifer Lopez and Lin-Manuel Miranda have teamed up to release a new song entitled 'Love Make the World Go Round' to pay tribute to the 49 people who died after a shooting at Pulse nightclub in Orlando and raise money to benefit a nearby cause.
Jennifer Lopez teams up with Lin-Manuel Miranda
J-Lo and the 'Hamilton' star recorded the new track in honour of Orlando's victims, with all the proceeds set to go to the Hispanic Federation's Proyecto Somos Orlando. Yesterday (July 4th 2016), they teased a short video of the pair of them working together in the studio on 'something very special'.
Kesha supporters are pushing for a boycott.
Jennifer Lopez has found herself losing a lot of support from her fanbase in the wake of her newest single 'I Ain't Your Mama' for the simple fact that it has been produced by Dr. Luke, who is currently amid legal proceedings after he was accused of sexual abuse by Kesha.
Jennifer Lopez causes controversy by working with Dr. Luke
While Dr. Luke, real name Lukasz Gottwald has denied all allegations and no concrete evidence has yet been presented against him in court, Kesha still maintains her story and, indeed, so have many of her fans - several of which are celebrity supporters including Lena Dunham, Taylor Swift and Demi Lovato. But a lot of Kesha supporters out there are also J.Lo fans, and they have found themselves conflicted by the news that Lopez has hit the studio with the controversial Gottwald especially in light of what the song is actually about.
Jennifer Garner had basically said the same thing a few days beforehand.
Ben Affleck’s tattoo of a phoenix on his back hasn’t gone down well with either of his exes, as Jennifer Lopez echoed recent comments by his former wife Jennifer Garner by describing the actor’s ink as “awful”.
Affleck, about to star in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and currently filming his new movie Live By Night, was seen sporting an enormous piece of body art on his lower back last summer when he was photographed bending over looking into his car, later revealed to be a phoenix rising from the ashes.
