The highlight of the film turns out to be the character least integral to the "plot" ... [Scrat's] apparently eternal quest for a beloved chestnut...plays like a series of classic cartoon short subjects...

This is a charmer full of laughs...

The story is weak on logic, but the writing is warm and frequently laugh-out-loud funny.

Ice Age isn't in the same league as its DreamWorks and Pixar competitors, but it is an enjoyable and well executed film nonetheless.

Ice Age has an unexpected warmth and enough funny lines to make this prehistoric road trip a family-friendly journey.

Scrat, easily the runaway star of Ice Age, is a wonderful wordless creation.

There's enough classically derived Road Runner-type fun to keep most family audiences happy. But the characters betray their contrivance.

a cute film in its own right, and the character that is most to thank for this is the saber-toothed squirrel Scrat

To complain about the lack of originality is to ignore the real wit and joy behind this very fun film.

A tremendous surprise. And one that doesn't wear out its welcome. The characters are original, likeable, and unpredictable.

This prehistoric buddy pic has a heart bursting with good intentions, something that goes a long way in dimming from memory its inherent routineness.

With animated movies these days it's a case of survival of the funniest, but with its mix of slapstick and sentiment, Ice Age still has plenty to offer.

Despite its flaws, Ice Age is fun and mercifully short, providing your youngsters enough time to finish their popcorn, but not enough to start fidgeting.

Aiming for cheap laughs and situational humor that doesn't appeal to the emotional side of its adult audience.

A thoroughly mediocre entry in the world of computer animation that does nothing to push the envelope technologically or creatively.

Chris Wedge is wonderfully talented and the film looks terrific, but... it just isn't very interesting.
