  • Summary: A quartet of misfits (including a fast talking but dim sloth named Sid; a moody woolly mammoth named Manny; a devilish saber-toothed tiger named Diego; and an acorn-crazy saber-toothed squirrel known as Scrat) unexpectedly, and reluctantly, comes together in a quest to return a human infant to his father.

  1. This digitally animated movie, filled with a cast of charming, funny critters from long ago, is family entertainment at its most bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

    A pleasure to look at and scarcely less fun as a story. I came to scoff and stayed to smile.
  3. Cute and often clever, there's nothing particularly memorable in this computer enhanced rerun, but this harmless little comedy has an unexpected warmth that melts the frozen plot.
  4. There are too many moments in Ice Age when you find yourself thinking: less bonding and fewer anti-Darwinian life-lessons please; more of that anarchist Scrat.
  5. If Ice Age lacks the fit and finish of top-of-the-line films from Pixar, DreamWorks or Disney, it's still an impressive piece of work for a new feature animation group, and a harbinger of cool cartoons to come.
  6. Renders it a cross between "Three Men and a Baby" and "Monsters, Inc." But it's bereft of the charisma of the former and the energy of the latter; stuck in a frozen wasteland, it possesses all the vigor of a Popsicle.

    An original premise with some cliche characters. Despite this, it delivers some solid laughs and the backgrounds are surely appealing to the eye. Although it clocks in at just a pultry 81 minutes, it feels a little slow in some parts and the animation is a bit simplistic compared to Pixar and DreamWorks. Nevertheless, Ice Age succeeds in delivering the funny and will surely delight people of all ages. Expand

    A pretty entertaining movie. Kids will undoubtedly enjoy it because it's silly and funny. The animation is excellent and the ultimate problem with this film is the script. Expand

    The film is nowhere near as well written as something from Pixar or Dreamworks but it is still entertaining. The film has some nice humor and heart. The characters have some charm to them. The film also has some nice moments. Kids will love this movie immediately and I won’t deny that the film is definitely geared towards them. Everyone else will get through it ok as the humor is decent and the film does have some heart and quiet moments as opposed to bombarding you with obnoxiousness. That being said there are a lot better animated films out there so I’m not going to out of my to recommend it. Check it out if you are interested you will like it ok. I enjoy it although that might be due to having grown up on the film. Even so this is a first film for Blue Sky Studios and as a first film its not bad. Expand

    Very uninteresting story line. Isn't the goal of a children's move to make a child laugh instead of put them to sleep? Clearly, the screenwriter missed the memo. Expand
