Cast / crew
Our odd pack – Diego the sabre-tooth tiger, Sid the sloth and Manny the mammoth – have three days to get to the other end of the valley and the safety of a boat before the end of the world. Along the way they meet a trio of possums, one of whom looks suspiciously like a mammoth.
It’s not boring, there are some fun lines and nicely animated gags. Director Carlos Saldanha clearly has a talent in staging and delivering a gag. The sequences with Scrat are very well done and new characters Crash and Eddie (a pair of possums) are fun and, again, well animated. On a deeper level, though, the story is depressingly ordinary (two people fall in love despite being fakely antagonistic) and most of the dialogue is off-the-shelf weak. To be fair, it doesn’t dent the agreeable entertainment value and this is a quality child-friendly film.
This movie contains mild bad language and peril.
