Ice Age (2002)


Set during the Ice Age, a sabertooth tiger, a sloth, and a wooly mammoth find a lost human infant, and they try to return him to his tribe. (IMDb)
Is the rag-tag family road-trip plot predictable? Yes. But that doesn’t make it any less touching at its climax (“that’s what you do in a herd”) or any less enjoyable along the way, as the dim but chatty Sid, the sarcastic Manny, and the no-nonsense Diego share hilarious banter (“hey Lord of the Flame, your tail’s on fire”) throughout a bevy of memorable scenes (see the Dodo melon fight; ice race), with a couple funny side-plots thrown in (see Sid’s recurring enemies; Scrat’s misadventures).
7.5/10 (Really Good)
