Ice Age: The Meltdown (2006)


Manny, Sid, and Diego discover that the ice age is coming to an end, and join everybody for a journey to higher ground. On the trip, they discover that Manny, in fact, is not the last of the woolly mammoths. (IMDb)
The great wacky humour from the first one dried up even quicker than the ice was melting in this sequel. The main trio lacks the snappy new-friend chemistry they once had and the new characters are more annoying than anything else. The one-note plot with the trio’s respective personal issues doesn’t captivate either (Manny’s is just awkward), so some random musical numbers are thrown in to eat up screen time. Fail. At least Scrat’s slapstick is still hilarious (see his trip to nut heaven).
5/10 (Poor)
