On 'Ice Age 2'

Sporadically funny and touching the surface, 'Ice Age: The Meltdown' is a motion picture, which might tickle the funny bones of children and some adults who are willing to laugh at everything. It's not a bad movie - the problem is that Pixar has set new standards for animated movies and I've come to expect such experiences every time. Being good when your competitor is great simply means that you will fade into oblivion.

There are so many characters and only a few make their mark. Manny (Ray Romano) and Ellie (Queen Latifah) offer light comedy and romantic relief. The squirrel scenes were dragging and all the sub-plots were so-so. In essence, the movie doesn't have anything in it for us to remember and exists purely because it's predecessor made money.
