Amazon.com The love life of a woolly mammoth--handled with G-rated delicacy--drives this sequel to the first computer-animated romp in the age of prehistoric mammals. While the first Ice Age took a delightful premise and suffocated it with a formulaic plot--in which a mammoth named Manfred (voiced by Ray Romano, Everyone Loves Raymond), a sloth named Sid (John Leguizamo, Moulin Rouge!), and a sabre-tooth tiger named Diego (Denis Leary, Rescue Me) helped an abandoned human infant return to its tribe (basically, Three Mammals and a Baby)--the sequel takes the now-familiar setting, gives it a shapeless, episodic storyline, and yet somehow becomes pretty darn entertaining. Faced with the threat of a flood from melting ice, our heroic trio are on the run to escape from their blossoming valley. On the way, they meet a female mammoth (Queen Latifah, Bringing Down the House) who thinks she's an opossum and get menaced by some freshly defrosted carnivo! rous fish. Add into the mix a herd of lava-worshipping mini-sloths, some Busby Berkeley-style vultures, and more ingenious slapstick featuring the acorn-crazed Scrat, and Ice Age: The Meltdown will amuse even jaded adults. -- Bret Fetzer Beyond Ice Age: The Meltdown Ice Age - Super Cool Edition Ice Age & Ice Age 2: The Meltdown - (DVD 2-Pack) Funtastic Adventures Collection Box Set (Ice Age / Robots / Fern Gully / Once Upon a Rainforest) Stills from Ice Age: The Meltdown (click for larger image) Product Description In this computer-animated sequal to ICE AGE, prehistoric creatures face a new problem: their icy world is melting. Star Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Drea de Matteo, Queen Latifah Special Features: Full Frame Format. Commentary, Behind-the-Scenes, Bonus shorts. 90 Minutes. Set Contains: If your kids have any interest in learning about how animation works, skip the mediocre games and pointless featurettes like Meet Crash & Eddie (which function like commercials for the dvd you've already bought) and dig into the fascinating The Animation Director's Chair and Scrat's Piranha Smackdown. Director's Chair shows a handful of scenes from the movie at different stages of design and polish, while Smackdown repeats the same scene but with wildly different sound effects. There are also two informative commentary tracks--an earnest but dry one from director Carlos Saldanha and a jovial one from several members of the animation crew--but for the general viewer, the gems will be some new scenes featuring the rambunctious opossum brothers and a new short cartoon, No Time for Nuts, in which Scrat scurries through time to find precious acorns. While every bit as gorgeously animated as Ice Age: The Meltdown, this delightful short captures the zippy, elastic flavor of classic Bugs Bunny or Daffy Duck cartoons. --Bret Fetzer
