Director: Chris Wedge
Cast: Ewan McGregor, Halle Berry, Robin Williams, Amanda Bynes, Drew Carrey, Jamie Kennedy
Rated PG- for some brief language and suggestive humor.
Running Time: 90 minutes
 
One word...best animated feature of the year...well, the year just started, and its more than one word, but who cares this movie is excellent. Being a younger audience movie, this film was still as awesome as some of the box office comedies that have been out in recent years. The creaters of Ice Age really took a second step foward with this new amazing work of computer animation.
 
I have said it before about Aladin, and I'll say it again, it is definately apparent that Robin Williams is one of the main characters with his witty comedy and style of acting. Fender(formerly known as Bumper) is definately my favorite character. With his crazy antics and wild actions, who can resist but to like him?
 
Ewan McGregor, Halle Berry, Amanda Bynes, and the rest of the cast really worked well with each other, quite the opposite of Racing Stripes where they had Frankie Muniz, Dustin Hoffman, and Woopie Goldberg all playing characters interacting with each other, lets be reasonable...it doesn't work. Robots can indeed be considered on par with Shrek and Finding Nemo by sharing the quality and flow of the storyline.
 
In this age of computer animated films capturing our hearts and laughs, this movie definately follows that path. Quick humor, references to real issues, and some bits and pieces from different movies and media all go together to form a movie that sincerly, the whole family can enjoy.
 
Good Points:
-Excellent animation, no shotty scenes or characters
-Right on the dot with the jokes and storyline
 
Bad Points:
-Umm....
-Ahh...
-Well...
-Lets face it, no matter your age, this movie is great to watch and laugh with.
 
Rating: 9/10
