Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"There's enough classically derived Road Runner-type fun to keep most family audiences happy. But the characters betray their contrivance."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"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."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"The highlight of the film turns out to be the character least integral to the "plot" ... [Scrat's] apparently eternal quest for a beloved chestnut...plays like a series of classic cartoon short subjects..."
‑ Steve Biodrowski, Cinefantastique
"Ice Age has an unexpected warmth and enough funny lines to make this prehistoric road trip a family-friendly journey."
‑ James Plath, Movie Metropolis
"a cute film in its own right, and the character that is most to thank for this is the saber-toothed squirrel Scrat"
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
"Not as cute as it looks."
‑ , Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"From the squirrel's mad, droopy eyes, to the rumba rhythms of Manny's rear end, to the way Diego settles into sleep like a tabby, these creatures are alive enough to love, and lament."
‑ Manohla Dargis, L.A. Weekly
"The story is weak on logic, but the writing is warm and frequently laugh-out-loud funny."
‑ Mark R. Leeper,
"Scrat, easily the runaway star of Ice Age, is a wonderful wordless creation."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"To complain about the lack of originality is to ignore the real wit and joy behind this very fun film."
‑ Michael Dequina, Film Threat
"In all, we get a visually crisp, though generally tame, offering."
‑ Robert Denerstein, Denver Rocky Mountain News
"It's simply a fun, silly comedy, but then what's wrong with that?"
‑ Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
"Ice Age isn't in the same league as its DreamWorks and Pixar competitors, but it is an enjoyable and well executed film nonetheless."
‑ , Film4
"Delivers solid laughs and thrills wrapped up in an infectious sense of character."
‑ Ian Freer, Empire Magazine
"One of the funniest movies of recent times, animated or otherwise."
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
