  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.
  2. No matter your age, this is one great AGE to be at.

    The coolest animation in town.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

    The animation is remarkable, except for the stiff, marionettelike humans.

    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.

    "Ice Age" is an excellent movie, but I think "Ice Age 2: The Meltdown" is even better!

    This one is a fun comedy flick!

    The movie holds it self quite well with good use of slap-stick comedy that I am sure many can enjoy, the simplicity of the story is good enough to keep the goal of the main characters direct and be easy to fallow for the younger audience; the animation is very fast and energetic, it helps the slap-stick of the movie but the writing needed some work, specially when it comes to dialog and continuity.

    I also felt that some of the textures were very ugly and every times the movie tried to be taken serious it failed to be, I just scratched my head at all those scenes... but for the rest I found it to be a very fun and enjoyable movie overall.
