It lacks most of the charm which made the first film great but Ice Age 2's improved animation, talented voice cast and everyone's favourite saber-toothed squirrel Scrat stealing the show in every scene he's in make Ice Age 2 worth watching.
A franchise was inevitable following Ice age's success and for the most this is a good enough companion though it's clear that some of the magic has been lost. That said there are some particularly touching scenes including one where ellie finally discovers her truth, and good story arches for most (except perhaps diego, learning to swim really does lower his cool factor from the first film). The finale manages to raise the stakes to make this a satisfying film for most.
This sequel sacrifices it's story; which was one of the main ingredients that made it's predecessor so successful, for superficial humour and impressive animations. All in all I would still recommend this as good family fun.

Dull beyond belief follow-up to the only fairly good original. About 95% of the running time is just the central animals walking about from one place to another, it's like the Lord of the Rings...Zzzz. My son lost interest frequently as well...don't think we'll be watching the remaining 20-odd films in the franchise. We're out.
