    Less a story than a series of complicated slapstick bits. show more

    The film is enjoyable enough, at least for young children. show more

    Carrie Rickey Philadelphia Inquirer

    While it lacks the heart and hipness of the similar-themed Pixar odysseys, The Meltdown has the physical humor of slapstick comedy. show more

    A good-natured, gag-filled sequel. show more

    Raucously fun, fluid follow-up with ecological message. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    This "Ice Age" is still a good movie (especially for kids) with top-of-the-tech CGI. show more

    Maitland McDonagh TV Guide

    The series' breakout star remains Scrat (Chris Wedge), a scrawny, speechless rat-squirrel thing trapped in a Sisyphean quest for acorns, and while kids' movies generally could do with fewer scatological gags (the target audience for poo and pee humor needs no encouragement), writers Peter Gaulke and Jim Hecht managed to come up with a (relatively) sophisticated one. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    The mediocre original, hampered by a saccharine plot and unconvincing reversals of character, earned lots of money but few plaudits. Now comes Ice Age: The Meltdown, a sequel with more humor, topicality, intelligence and appeal. show more

    Ice Age The Meltdown is a very funny movie. The best voice acting for the best characters and the wonderful music makes this a great film.
