FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY

by Kathee on 1/13/2008

I recommend this movie for children of all ages, as well as adults. With the fun story line and setting, this movie will have you sitting on the edge of your seat. Buying the 2-pack of Ice Age I and II was the best deal, and shipping was so fast!

Review [2] 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 [1] Hats off to 20th Century Fox. Through a marketing campaign which can be considered nothing less than astonishing, the studio has managed to convert Ice Age from an adequate (but hardly superlative) example of family entertainment into one of 2002's handful of must-see movies. Put this one alongside Star Wars, Episode II, the 20th James Bond film, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, and The Two Towers on the list of movies that seemingly everyone is aware of. The reason is simple: a computer-generated squirrel who has a hard time hiding his acorn.

Review [1] "Ice Age" is a pleasure to look at and scarcely less fun as a story. I came to scoff and stayed to smile. I confess the premise did not inspire me: A woolly mammoth, a sabertooth tiger and a sloth team up to rescue a human baby and return it to its parents. Uh, huh. But Peter Ackerman's screenplay is sly and literate, and director Chris Wedge's visual style so distinctive and appealing that the movie seduced me...because of the artwork, the dialogue and the voice-over work by the actors; the filmmakers have all worked together to really see and love these characters, who are not "cartoon animals" but as quirky and individual as human actors, and more engaging than most.

Review [2] 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.
