Trivia

According to an interview with Jay Leno on July 12th 2012, Denis Leary's character Diego originally died near the end of the film, which caused the test audience of children to burst into tears, so it was re-done. See more »

Crazy Credits

At one point in the credits it says "Ice Age Babies" and lists all the babies born to the crew during the course of production. This feature is copied from Pixar's animated films, which always list the "Production Babies" during their credits. See more »

You're an embarrassment to nature...
28 December 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was great. I liked it better than I did Shrek, by far. 'Manfred' and the Squirrel really take the cake here-excellant voice work, nice animation of the character faces, Denis Leary was a hoot too....with just the right amount of an edge, as is usual for him.

Some of the vignettes-the Dodos, (You've got three melons), etc are right up there with anything Pixar has done. I also thought that the little montage of Mannfred's parent's(cave drawings come to life) were done well too.

As for the messages-'Non-trad families are okay too-', people can work together, etc.-well, all are pretty obvious and all that-but it's not hammered home ala Disney, and you also don't have anyone breaking out into song, either.

See it for the Mammoth and the squirrel, though the Sloth is fun too. Cute kid baby too, not far removed from 'Boo' in Monsters Inc.
