Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: A tad crasser and pushier than its predecessor, Ice Age: The Meltdown is still an entirely serviceable follow-up to the 2002 hit that will thoroughly amuse kids and get a rise or two out of parents as well. – Todd McCarthy, Variety, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: Watching this zoo of long-vanished quadrupeds, you're left with an eerie message for our own warming times: They fought the thaw, and the thaw won. – Jim Ridley, Village Voice, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The Meltdown is less a story than a series of complicated slapstick bits -- the physical gags are often enjoyable, but there's not much else to the movie. – Peter Hartlaub, San Francisco Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: You'll take your kids, yes. But don't be surprised if this one leaves them cold as you-know-what. – Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel, May 13, 2009

Worth Watching

I loved this movie!!! I'm honestly a sucker for romance, so that's another reason why I love this movie (and another reason I'll be seeing Ice Age 3 this summer). The characters were lovable and funny, and, even though it's not as good as the first, it won't let you down.


Awsome movie, watch the first, this one, and the one coming summer 2009!


Yayy! I just watched the first Ice Age that came out in 2002.. and then I saw that itunes put the second one out and I got sooo excited!!!!! You rock itunes!
