I expected this movie to be bad: the trailers were horrible and the reviews were dismal, but I decided to go in the hope of a few laughs using a free ticket through Atom Tickets. I ended up getting a bit more than I expected, but it still wasn't very good.
The best part of the movie was its homages. There were some really funny references to "2001: A Space Odyssey", "Apollo 13", and Neil deGrasse Tyson. Neil deGrasse Tyson's cameo was the funniest part of the movie to me. The movie also had some surprisingly good commentary on romance. Max Greenfield and Nick Offerman were also pretty funny in their supporting roles.
The plot of the film was formulaic and goofy. It tries to have a scientific basis, but it isn't really accurate, but that can be expected of a kids' movie. A lot of the elements in the film, such as the relationship between Peaches and Julian or the conflict between Buck and the dromeosaurs felt forced. Also, the Scrat storyline seemed even more nonsensical than ever. I'm sure that the target audience wouldn't be bothered by these flaws, however.
So overall, "Ice Age: Collision Course" had some enjoyable moments, and seemed to me like a slight improvement over its predecessor. It is by no means great or worth rushing out for, but it was a decent way to use a free ticket when I didn't have anything better to do.
