Ice Age Reviews
Mr. Wedge and Mr. Saldanha handle the mix of verbal jokes and slapstick well. Their film falters, however, in its adherence to the Disney philosophy of required poignancy, a salute that I'd hoped the movie would avoid.
Real Ice Ages were no jokes. They lasted about 100,000 years and froze most life on the planet. But as long as Leguizamo's Sid and Wedge's Scrat are on screen, this one warms you with laughter.
Over the years, Hollywood has crafted a solid formula for successful animated movies, and Ice Age only improves on it, with terrific computer graphics, inventive action sequences and a droll sense of humor.
