The quality of the stories has gradually declined in each succeeding sequel since the original film was released in 2002, but the technical quality of computer animation has improved during that same time.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs works on its own terms, as a distraction for the children and an inoffensive, if unfulfilling, time at the theater for their parents.

The manic pace quickly grows tiresome, as does the influx of cloying baby animals.

Those who complain about the feeble jokes and contrived situations should be forced to watch the first two films and defend them.

There's not much for audiences over the age of 10 to warm to during this third, and hopefully final, Ice Age.

The most reliable laugh-getter in the past Ice Age films, the acorn-seeking Scrat, is saddled with a dull subplot in which he meets a lady Scratte.

Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs alters the pattern established by the previous two films, focusing not on the herd but on action-packed, 3-D adventure.

I can't figure out how a character as great [as Scrat] keeps ending up in movies like this.

Certainly not terrible, but ultimately forgettable and that means you should skip it.
