Entertainment Weekly   Full Review
Very Good "...a jaw-dropping technical achievement, yet also brimming with funny and sophisticated pop prankishness. Ice Age never matches the brilliance of Toy Story or the heartfelt heft of Shrek, but it's an antic and sweet-spirited pleasure.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "Ice Age is not a standout in the still-small subgenre of computer animated films. It's perfectly acceptable family entertainment - the kind of movie that parents can take their children to without worrying about inappropriate content (for either the youngsters or the adults). And, sometimes, that's about all you can ask for from a movie.''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Good "Ice Age is a pleasure to look at and scarcely less fun as a story. I came to scoff and stayed to smile.  ...screenplay is sly and literate, and director Chris Wedge's visual style so distinctive and appealing that the movie seduced me.''

USA TODAY  Full Review
Good "A minor delight but a delight just the same.  Though it falls short of Pixar/Disney or the best from DreamWorks, 20th Century Fox's Ice Age deserves to pass animation's survival-of-the-fittest test.''

The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Publisher Comments: (before opinions collected)
A very entertaining movie for young and old alike! A GREAT FAMILY MOVIE even parents will enjoy. I predict outstanding opinions from this fun movie.

Twenty-thousand years ago. The Earth is a wondrous, prehistoric world filled with danger, not the least of which is the beginning of the Ice Age. To avoid a really bad frostbite, the planet's majestic creatures – and a few small, slothful ones – begin migrating south. The exceptions are a woolly mammoth named Manfred, a high plains drifter who does things his own way; and a terminally lazy sloth named Sid, who enjoys doing nothing, his own way.

When Sid "adopts" Manfred as his protector, the mammoth tries everything he can to unload his newfound baggage. But that's only the beginning of his frustrations: Manny has been roped by Sid into helping reunite an abandoned human baby named Roshan with his family. They are joined by Diego, a sinister saber-toothed tiger who befriends Sid and Manny, all the while seeing the infant as a tasty treat.

As Sid, Manny and Diego make their way across the vast, ice-covered landscape, another creature, a prehistoric saber-toothed squirrel known as Scrat, tries desperately to carry out his mission in life – to bury an acorn – which, alas, triggers calamitous events.

While Scrat wages war with the Ice Age itself over his precious nut, Manny, Sid, Diego and Roshan embark on an incredible journey. They narrowly escape avalanches, battle over food with a hapless flock of doomsday dodos, explore the mysteries of a diaper, careen through a prehistoric roller coaster of ice funnels and traverse ice bridges over lakes of volcanic lava. They become the weirdest herd of this, or any, age.

As for Scrat … He is probably still trying to retrieve that cursed acorn.
