You'll take your kids, yes. But don't be surprised if this one leaves them cold as you-know-what.

The first Ice Age movie more or less exhausted these characters and their world, and the meltdown doesn't add much.

Ice Age: The Meltdown has its share of humorous moments, but most of these involve the squirrel. The main plot involving the exodus and the Mammoth romance is more often dull than amusing.

[The film] has lots of energy, some decent animation and good voice-over work -- but no real story and few chuckles.

The animation is first-rate, but the story needs to catch up to the magic. Otherwise, what's the point?

If you thought the original was a lifeless, forgettable bore, you'll find the sequel outdoing it on both counts.

It feels like a cheap direct-to-video rush job.

For as endearing as Scrat's antics are, even they can't sustain the lackluster jokes that pass for humor for the bulk of the ninety-minute running time.

The storyline wanes towards the end and, from the kids' point of view, the whole package lacks momentum.
March 30, 2006
A blandly voiced, simply plotted, inoffensively average children's film. Every single bit - down to Scrat once again running away with the movie - is exactly like the first.

The exposition is lazy and sloppy and the story has little creative heat.

There are some charming moments, but you have to wait for them.

Assim como o original, tem seus melhores momentos quando o esquilo Scrat surge em cena. Pena que isso aconteça tão pouco.

Ice Age: The Meltdown is pure sequel product that should make children and undemanding grown-ups happy even as it lacks anything resembling storytelling inspiration.

March 31, 2006
There's something disheartening about the way the writers and director have to give so much of the dialogue double meaning, all literal for the kiddies and full of double-entendres and pop culture references for the parents.

The sequel to Ice Age is very much like the original: witty and imaginative at times, dull and predictable at others.

The Meltdown is at least faithful to its predecessor in the sense of being equally as underwhelming.
