Although theres not a stitch of this 'toon thats original, it completly works thanks to the great voice work of the leads and the antics of Scrat. The witty throw away lines make this movie ("You have beautiful eyes"). The humor level is sooooo much higher in this movie next to the waste of time sequels after this( although I have not seen #4). Great fun for kids and adults.

A very funny movie!

"Summary:Clever jokes, some slapstick, fairly well developed script, good animation, solid story development, and good music.Review:

Ray Ramano, John Leguizamo and Denis Leary create a good team together and a touching story.Story:
In the beginning of the ice age, 3 unique animal adversaries are drawn together to bring a human baby back to migrating father. A depressed wooly mammoth (Manfred - Ray Ramano), a good natured, happy go-lucky, but less than intelligent sloth (Sid - John Leguizamo) and a mean saber-toothed tiger (Diego - Denis Leary) put up with each other during their journey Northward and the entire animal world goes south; with a squirrel unsuccessfully capturing his acorn.Audience Reaction:The entire audience seemed to liked / loved the movie. My daughter liked it so much that two other movie goers noted how much fun she had during the movie. (She often gets noticed because she is severely handicapped, but very charming).Children:Seems ok for young children as well. Not as scary as Jimmy Neutron (as a comparison). But, there are a couple of animal fighting scenes, and the final fight scene could be a bit much for sensitive children under 3 or 4 years old."
Super cool movie the same as before

"Another re-release for "Ice Age" (this is the third counting the single disc edition of the film) to coincide with the sequel, this edition essentially is the previous two disc edition with some minor features added that don't make it any more worthwhile to pick up. The DVD ROM printables and "Scrat's Frozen Facts" appear to be the newest features on this set. Most of the featurettes are recycled from the previous edition.

No issue with the transfer per se since it is a digital cartoon this edition appears to be from the same source as the previous edition. Should you upgrade? Not if you have the previous two disc edition but if you have the single disc edition and you want the extras, this is the way to go. Sound is crystal clear with nice use of 5.1 effects.

The DVD ROM printables and "Scrat's Frozen Fun Facts" an interactive feature that can be accessed during the film appear to be the newest features on this set. The latter has behind-the-scenes clips you the film in various stages of production while also including comments from experts on natural history discussing the what scientist believe the world was like then. Most of the featurettes are recycled from the previous edition. Otherwise the commentary tracks, deleted scenes and just about everything else is imported from the previous two disc edition of the film. There's also theater money that can be presented for "Ice Age 2".

If you purchased the previous two disc set of this movie, I'd take a pass on this one. There's no improvement in this edition vs. the earlier two disc set in my mind.

This is as cool as it gets!

"Here's why:

First, a great character driven story with a positive message. The heroes in this story don't start out as heroes at all. Sid is an annoying and rather pathetic sloth who is left behind when all his friends migrate. Manfred is a mammoth with "issues" who at the beginning is walking the wrong way for some reason. Why? Does the scene with the moving cave drawings explain this? Was his wife and offspring killed, and was he walking the wrong way to end his own life? Diego the sabertooth tiger is an order following killer on a mission.

Each of these characters grow beyond themselves to save a human baby. Sid assumes responsiblity and develops courage. Diego learns to think for himself and do the right thing. Manfred overcomes his grief and self-centerdness and endures all kinds of trials to save a baby who may grow up to be a hunter of mammoths. This is a story how anyone, regardless of how non-heroic they may be, can rise above themselves and do what is right when they have to.

Second, this DVD lets you watch the movie five different ways: Widescreen, Fullscreen, "Nutty Movie" mode where you can watch the deleted scenes as if they'd been spliced back into the movie, commentary mode, and "extreme cool" mode where you watch the movie in a window while documentary material plays in another window. How cool is that?

Third, the deleted scenes are actually very interesting. They have their own commentary too. Sylvia is a great character (a sloth girlfriend of Sid's) who was going to be in the movie but was cut out and replaced. The commentary tells why.

Fourth, the two shorts are great. Gone Nutty is more of Scrat chasing acorns, and Bunny is a brilliant short about an elderly female rabbit's last minutes of this life and the transition to the next.

And there's a lot more. It make take until the next ice age for me to get through all the stuff on this DVD!"
