Sure Ice Age borrowed
elements from every movie every made (from "Monsters Inc.s
baby to the quintessential reluctant and ugly hero and his clueless buddy featured
best and most recently in Shrek and even the jumping Harrison Ford
from The Fugitive), but it was such fun and so visually stunning
that you had to love it.
The audience did! The kids at the theater were very impressed, repeating popular lines and almost choking with laughter when the clueless buddy, Sid the Sloth, was hit on the head again and again. In turn, the old folks laughed at the subtle adult humor. And the inbetweeners like me, well, we chuckled at everything.
Although the film
wasnt completely original, it had several entirely original scenes explaining
the extinction of the dodos through their cult-like behavior and downright stupidity.
Several others included a pair of presumably gay rhinoceri, voiced by the silly
Stephen Root and Cedric the Entertainer. Choice, I tell ye, choice!
Like its predecessors, the film featured great voices. the incredible voice talent of John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Goran Visjnic, and the surprisingly effective Ray Romano. And the animation really was splendid. Watch out Dreamworks and Disney, our friends Fox have a little Blue Sky goldmine on their hands.
