The manic pace quickly grows tiresome, as does the influx of cloying baby animals.
July 6, 2009
Certainly not terrible, but ultimately forgettable and that means you should skip it.

The whole movie is more of the same and I'm afraid the franchis is running out of steam.
July 3, 2009
As with the two earlier films, it's all a mite disorderly in tempo but often highly amusing and great fun in the main.

Children will probably enjoy Ice Age 3, but adults may find the script a little over-sophisticated, not to say conflicted in its attitudes towards women.
July 3, 2009
Whereas the previous chapters were sweetly anarchic, full of wisecracks and narrative digressions but also curious about eco-issues such as global warming and the extinction of species, this effort is dramatically inert and uninspired.
July 3, 2009
Ice Age series comes fully endorsed as a safe ride for all ages.
July 3, 2009
Though there's not much of a story, the animation is expert and imaginative.
July 2, 2009
And that overriding air of cuteness is a problem that seems destined to get worse in the sequels which will surely follow. Battle fatigue has definitely set in.
July 2, 2009
Rather than evolving, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs treads on familiar and infertile ground.
July 2, 2009
There's a sense of ineptness in a script that constantly reaches, with only modest success, for amusing things that the mammoths and their friends can do.
July 2, 2009
There are chases and escapes, morals and messages, comedy and character... but when the fur stops flying, it still feels more frozen than fresh.
July 1, 2009
It's not utterly without charm. Only here, that charm feels less earned than manufactured, a product not of evolution -- or even intelligent design -- but of cynical, soulless opportunism.
July 1, 2009
This rambunctious outing -- the third in the franchise -- is cute enough to engage kids and just smart enough to keep the chaperones entertained.
July 1, 2009
If the third Ice Age were a bit better, there would be little need to dwell on the inconsistencies.
July 1, 2009
Nobody seems to be working too hard in Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.
July 1, 2009
With its three-dimensional action and two-dimensional feelings, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is warmed-over nonsense.
July 1, 2009
Nice, sweet, safe.
July 1, 2009
The finest idiosyncratic pleasure of this franchise remains the ongoing relationship of hapless squirrel-rat Scrat to his beloved acorn.
July 1, 2009
This is true family fun. Not the two-tiered sort where there are potty jokes for the kids and pop culture references for the parents. Not only will everyone be laughing at the same time, they'll be laughing at the same things.
