Manny the woolly mammoth, Sid the sloth, Diego the saber-toothed tiger, and the hapless prehistoric squirrel/rat known as Scrat are back. The Ice Age is coming to an end, and the animals are delighting in the melting paradise that is their new world.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average 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.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Above Average The movie is nice to look at, the colors and details are elegant, the animals engaging, the action fast-moving, but I don't think older viewers will like it as much as the kids.

USA Today Full Review
Good Ice Age: The Meltdown should warm viewers' hearts globally. With its appealing combination of humor and endearing characters — many of whom are back from the first film — it is at least as good as the original Ice Age, and possibly better.

OPINION GRAPH

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

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 117 moviegoers:These opinions are just a little lower than what the original "Ice Age" received. Kids obviously loved this movie. Adults rated it as very good, but not great. For a kids movie, that's pretty good. I have no problem highly recommending "Ice Age 2" as a GREAT FAMILY MOVIE!


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Our trio is still together and enjoying the perks of their now melting world. Manny may be ready to start a family, but nobody has seen another mammoth for a long time; Manny thinks he may be the last one. That is, until he miraculously finds Ellie (voiced by Queen Latifah), the only female mammoth left in the world. Their only problems: They can't stand each other - and Ellie somehow thinks she's a possum!

Ellie comes with some excess baggage in the form of her two possum "brothers"...Crash and Eddie (voiced by Seann William Scott and Josh Peck), a couple of daredevil pranksters and cocky, loud-mouthed troublemakers.

Manny (voiced by Ray Romano), Sid (voiced by John Leguizamo), and Diego (voiced by Denis Leary) quickly learn that the warming climate has one major drawback: A huge glacial dam holding off oceans of water is about to break, threatening the entire valley. The only chance of survival lies at the other end of the valley. So our three heroes, along with Ellie, Crash and Eddie, form the most unlikely family - in any "Age" - as they embark on a mission across an ever-changing, increasingly dangerous landscape towards their salvation.
