    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Comes closer than any other recent animated film to the Looney Tunes ideal. Just as Daffy Duck and Bugs Bunny entertained without either condescending to kids or lobbing adult jokes over their heads. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    If Ice Age lacks the fit and finish of top-of-the-line films from Pixar, DreamWorks or Disney, it's still an impressive piece of work for a new feature animation group, and a harbinger of cool cartoons to come. show more

    Almost everything about Ice Age proves to be disappointingly generic. show more
