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.
December 25, 2002
The film has too many spots where it's on slippery footing, but is acceptable entertainment for the entire family and one that's especially fit for the kiddies.

From what I've seen so far this year, Ice Age has got to be the leading contender for best animated film at this year's Oscars.

A good, solid, enjoyable animated film for all ages.

I'm not the world's biggest fan of animated films, but this one had me smiling.

A really sweet film that has none of the cynical, sex-filled junk that polluted Shrek.
October 15, 2002
Fresh, funny and richly imagined.
September 18, 2002
You want to like it simply because it obviously is trying so hard to be liked.
August 26, 2002
Far from the over-polished sheen of recent CGI features... the [animation's] basic line-structures are stylistically reminiscent of cave drawings.
August 17, 2002
I was ready, willing and able to let my heart be warmed, but there was no crescendo or mammoth emotional journey.
August 12, 2002
The inventive look of the film and a sporadic stream of funny gags keep us watching, even if the characters and plot aren't exactly ground-breaking.
