This digitally animated movie, filled with
a cast of charming funny critters from the ice age, is funny
entertainment at its best, and will melt the hearts of old and
Its characters, dialogue, humor, and voice performances are first
This cute and clever story has warmth that will melt even an
Eskimo Pie with warm laughter.
In the world of C.G.I. (computer generated
imagery) this entry may seem a little pedestrian-- and it is.
The entire plot is about returning a human infant to its parent.
But the voice characterizations and that manic, nut-hiding saber-toothed
squirrel make this an enjoyable outing none the less.
The film lacks the social satire of Shrek,
but maintains the feel of a Saturday morning cartoon.
Ice Age is
a computer-animated cartoon movie that combines humor, action,
and beauty and is just plain fun.
It is a must see family film that is both amusing and amazing
at the same time.
I liked the squirrel; he's a winterized version of the Coyote
from the Road Runner cartoons. His acorn burying amusements
are scattered throughout the picture, from beginning to end.
