While Scrat the Saber-toothed Squirrel is still trying to find his precious acorn, the misfit trio of Manny the Mammoth, Sid the Sloth and Diego the Sabre-tooth Tiger have settled down in an isolated valley with numerous other animals. However, the trio soon discover that the ice wall surrounding the valley is barely holding back a massive body of water behind it and the melting state threatens to break the wall and flood the valley. With their one chance of survival being a boat at the other end of the valley, the trio make a desperate exodus there. Along the way, they meet Ellie, a female mammoth who is convinced that she is an opossum like her brothers. While the strange group continues their trek across the valley, they must learn to get along. Manny struggles to find some connection to Ellie, who may be the only other one of his kind.

I was thoroughly pleased after watching Ice Age. Every moment of the movie was enjoyable me, and is for people of all ages, from infants to geriatrics. This visually animated film is about a hilarious journey of a few unlikely friends. As animals of all species start their journey to run from the oncoming Ice Age, a few of them get separated from their families and join together to overcome this feat and survive. A mammoth, sloth, and saber-toothed tiger join together to migrate south. Along the way they even rescue a human baby while overcoming their differences with each other. The animation is of excellent quality, and I would recommend this movie to anyone and everyone.
