Ice Age – Edited

Theatrical Release: March 15, 2002
DVD Release: November 8, 2004


Ray Romano, John Leguizamo and Dennis Leary lend their voices to this computer-animated story about an unlikely pre-historic trio. As the southern migration begins, Manfred (Romano), a woolly mammoth, seems to be going his own wrong way. Sid (Leguizamo) is a fast talking, lazy sloth left behind by his family to fend for himself. After angering two rhinoceros, Sid latches on to Manny as his protector, much to Manny’s dismay. When a human child is suddenly thrust into their care, Sid convinces Manny they should return the baby to his own tribe. Diego (Leary), a saber-tooth tiger, soon joins the pair. He has the skills they need to find the humans, but also hides ulterior motives for the child. As winter closes in, the trio races to find the one gap in the mountains used by human hunters. Humorous attempts by a pre-historic squirrel to hide an acorn provide slapstick interludes throughout the film. With comical sights and comments about various historical and fictional events, ICE AGE will entertain kids from 10 on up. Sports enthusiasts will also enjoy laughable scenes of skiing, snowboarding and football with dodo birds.

Dove Review

This is a delightful animated movie for the whole family. An unlikely group of animals work together to return a baby to its father. I believe that this movie shows that no matter where we come from or what we look like we can get along and be friends even if we are different. This edited verison does not have offensive lanuage but still has a small amount of violence regarding an attack from the tigers on the village.
