Review I can't say that I didn't enjoy "Ice Age 2: The Meltdown" because I did. I smiled at most of the jokes, but once again I regretted Ray Romano's lack of vocal variety (Romano is Manny, the mammoth), and the fact that Denis Leary, as Diego the saber-tooth, wasn't given much to do. I mean, if you don't want a smirking, sardonic performance in a major role, don't cast a comic who is known for being smirking and sarcastic to play it...Scrat is essentially soundless, emitting only grunts, gasps, and growls in his pursuit in what appears to be the only acorn BCE. Chuck Jones would have been proud to be Scrat's papa, which, in a way, he was.

Review Only Scrat, the ferocious little sabre-toothed squirrel, retains his magic from the original "Ice Age" (2002). Most of the other characters are back in "Ice Age: The Meltdown," but their story is more of a slog than a sprint. Remarkable, that they're still around although tens of thousands of years must have passed since the previous film...The movie is nice to look at, the colors and details are elegant, the animals engaging, the action fast-moving, but I don't think older viewers will like it as much as the kids. The first "Ice Age" movie more or less exhausted these characters and their world, and the meltdown doesn't add much. Most of the conflict involves personalities: Can these species co-exist? Well, of course they can, in a cartoon.

Review A tad crasser and pushier than its predecessor, "Ice Age: The Meltdown" is still an entirely serviceable follow-up to the 2002 hit that will thoroughly amuse kids and get a rise or two out of parents as well...Style and approach of the sequel are of a piece with the original picture, on which present helmer Carlos Saldanha was co-director (to Chris Wedge, who's now exec producer). Lori Forte remains as producer. New writers Peter Gaulke, Gerry Swallow and Jim Hecht supply plenty of decent jokes that Romano, Leguizamo and Leary deliver with every bit of drollery they can summon, but there's a small new anxiety to please that differentiates the tone somewhat from the first outing. Not that the small fry will notice.
