Ice Age never matches the brilliance of ''Toy Story'' or the heartfelt heft of ''Shrek,'' but it's an antic and sweet-spirited pleasure.
The coolest animation in town.
A minor delight but a delight just the same.
A pleasure to look at and scarcely less fun as a story. I came to scoff and stayed to smile.
An entertaining story that, while not terribly original, is sufficiently arresting and often laugh-out-loud funny.
To complain about the lack of originality is to ignore the real wit and joy behind this very fun film.
New York Post
Almost everything about Ice Age proves to be disappointingly generic.
The animation is remarkable, except for the stiff, marionettelike humans.
The A.V. Club
Kids won't mind a bit, but adults accustomed to "Shrek" and Pixar will have no trouble spotting what's missing.
Has only its stylized designs to recommend it.
