Movie review: 'Ice Age: Collision Course,' fine (but not-so-fresh) fifth installment fetches some laughs http://www.kansascity.com/entertainment/movies-news-reviews/article91661027.html#storylink=rss Parents need to know that "Ice Age: Collision Course" is the fifth installment in the popular prehistoric-themed "Ice Age" franchise. It's not necessary for viewers to have seen all of the former films to understand the plot line, but it does help. The violence/peril is less intense than in previous installments but does feature serious natural catastrophes - like a fiery asteroid headed for Earth (and destructive meteors) - as well as egg-stealing birds bent on destruction. You can also expect a little bit of insult language ("turd," "stupid"), as well as mildly suggestive comments about "parts retracting" and hotness. The coupled-off characters also embrace or kiss very briefly. As always, the messages revolve around teamwork and the unconditional love/acceptance of the right "herd."
