I enjoyed the first two movies, was mixed on the third and liked Scrat's Continental Crack-Up. I was anticipating Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas, and found it did live up to expectations. While short, perhaps a little too short, it is festive and fun, with the animation as great as ever especially in the beautifully detailed backgrounds and the music jaunty and putting you in the mood for the festive season. The writing even with the odd forced moment is mostly witty and funny(with Diego having the best lines), and the story is engaging and heart-warming with a warm atmosphere. I have always liked the characters and they are still entertaining, with Scrat stealing every scene he's in and Peaches is adorable, and the voice acting is solid across the board.
All in all, a lot of fun and perfect for the Christmas season. 8/10 Bethany Cox
