  • 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.

    Masterpiece! For me it's almost the best CGI movie ever! I've seen Ice Age more than 20 times and am still laughing. It is so much fun for every age. The plot is brilliant as well and the characters are genius. I really dont know what to say anymore. Just watch it if you still havent seen this 10/10 film. Expand

    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

    It's good, I don't find it funny or anything, but that's the same with everything else. What I do criticize is how stupid the humans look, their faces are made of squares and they should've worked on the animations more. The characters are really good. The story revolves around 3 mammals coming together and then trying to return a baby to a group of humans while 1 of them, the sabertooth tiger, is actually trying to return the baby to his people and there are really good moments through out especially that squirrel called Scrat who is always chasing his acorn. It's a great start to the Ice Age series that has so far made up 4 movies including this. Expand

    The animation could be somewhat better but the charming characters and kind storytelling are what makes it worthwhile. Its only a little bit funny though. 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
