This is good, clean family entertainment, if you overlook the few short instances of gross body humor (I hate it, but little boys laugh--what can you do), and the slight sexual references (one or two in each movie). Why can't they just leave these out? I would give it a five, but hate that they have to throw in that stuff and ruin a perfectly good family film that would be just as entertaining without the body noises and references to sex or sexual organs. But don't get me started. Overall, love the Ice Age movies and appreciate the talent that went into making them.
My kids love the music, too.
Suddenly they discover the ice is melting and all the animals will drown if they don't get to the end of the valley in time. As they begin their journey Manny is suddenly faced with the possibility that he may be the last Mammoth living. He soon meets another Mammoth, a female named Ellie (Queen Latifah) and he is ecstatic at first but then disappointed to find that she thinks she's an Opossum. It wasn't good enough for them to give Manny what he needed but to add the element of her thinking she's another animal lends to great comic moments, especially with Ellie's two Opossum brothers who are characterized as extreme sports enthusiasts.
The animation is this movie is even better than the first. Where the first one took some artistic liberties in the animation of the animals, this one is even more detailed, especially in Manny's fur. The antics of Sid are just as funny, Leguzamo has his character down perfectly. Romano and Leary are just as good. Leary shows the most character development as the one who used to stalk these creatures and now walks side by side with them.
Queen Latifah is fun and lively as Ellie and the two stunt happy opossums are hysterical in their daredevil antics. All in all this movie is light and fun entertainment with some edgy humor, some tense moments where the group is attacked by two thawed carnivores and some very choreographed buzzards singing about the demise of the animals that will lead to their bliss. There are also some moments where the Mammoths talk about reassuring the continuance of their species, they tip toe around the subject but still some small kids might not get the innuendos. Careful explanations might be required and some scenes might be a little scary for very young children, it is rated PG after all.
But of course, the one very funny part of the movie is Skrat, the prehistoric saber-tooth squirrel desperately trying to hold on to his beloved acorn. The movie is worth watching just to see him go chase this thing through ice, water, piranhas, vultures and floods. You root for him but laugh at him when things go awry, and then let out an `oooo' when you see the hardships he endures.
The stand alone short `No time for nuts' is eight minutes of pure Skrat and worth the cost of the DVD by itself.
