March 9, 2018
In the time-honored tradition of kids' films, Ice Age mixes broad displays of physical cruelty with a sweet message, which in this case is about the need of each member of a herd to look after the other.

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...

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.

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.

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.
