`Meltdown': a mammoth's undertaking

Review C-

March 31, 2006|By ROGER MOORE | ROGER MOORE,ORLANDO SENTINEL

The good news about Ice Age: The Meltdown is that the nut-nutty, saber-toothed squirrel of the first Ice Age - the best, funniest thing in the movie - is back for the sequel.

He fights off Ice Age vultures and piranhas for his beloved acorn this time. He takes his lumps, Wile E. Coyote, fashion. He turns ninja, when need be. And his every wordless entrance and ignominious exit is a hoot.

Ice Age: The Meltdown (20th Century Fox) Starring the voices of Ray Romano, Queen Latifah, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary. Directed by Carlos Saldanha. Rated PG. Time 85 minutes.
