Product Description

They came... they thawed... they conquered the hearts of audiences everywhere in the coolest animated adventure of all time! Heading south to avoid the bad case of global frostbite, a group of migrating misfit creatures embark on a hilarious quest to reunite a human baby with his tribe. Featuring an all-star voice cast, including Ray Romano, John Leguizamo and Denis Leary, ICE AGE is "a pure delight" (New York Daily News) for all ages!

Additional Features

The two-disc Super-Cool Edition of Ice Age is totally packed with features. However, the most interesting ones--the feature-length commentary, the animated shorts (including "Gone Nutty: Scrat's Missing Adventure"), the deleted scenes, and other goodies--were previously available on the original two-disc set. In addition to the obligatory Ice Age 2 trailer, this edition has two new features. In the "Nutty Movie Mode," you can watch the movie and occasionally click through to one of the five deleted scenes at the point from the scene was cut. The "Extreme Cool View" version lets you watch the whole movie on a window that occupies about one-third of the TV screen while other parts of the screen are filled with text trivia and streaming video, which provides both film info and historical background on the ice age. If you don't have Ice Age and you like bonus features, this Super-Cool Edition is the one to get. If you already have the two-disc edition, this version does have some new stuff on it, but honestly, did you ever get through all the features on that one? --David Horiuchi

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!

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.

For those who purchased the blu ray/dvd/digital copy combo, if you get an "invalid serial number" when you try to redeem the digital copy, you can contact Fox at foxconnect@orderassistance.com for help. I purchased one copy of the DVD from Amazon and had trouble redeeming the digital copy. I kept getting an "invalid serial number" error. I exchanged the first DVD for a replacement, and unfortunately had the same issue. Thankfully, after an e-mail to Fox, they were able to supply me with a replacement serial number that worked fine, and I was able to finally redeem the digital copy. As a side note, I do wish Amazon would not ship DVDs in padded mailers, as the DVD case was destroyed by the time it reached me.

It's CUTE and SWEET and I think (even though I don't have any) KIDS WOULD REALLY LIKE IT. There are also some special features that were interesting. It's definitely the CLEANEST movie I've seen in a long time. That's neither good nor bad, just fact. I guess that would make it a FAMILY MOVIE.

Ice Age is a great family comedy. It stars Ray Romano, Dennis Leary and John Leguizamo and the 3 are hilarious in this one. It's easily right there on the level with other soon to be great computer animated movies like SHREK, TOY STORY and TOY STORY 2, A BUG'S LIFE and MONSTERS Inc. This is one the whole family should not miss!
The story starts during the big Migration before the ice age and Sid (Leguizamo) the prehistoric Sloth with a speech impediment has been left behind by his family because he over sleeps. In an attempt to find his family he runs into Manny (Romano) the Wooly Mammoth. After unsuccessfully trying to get rid of Sid, Manny and Sid stumble upon a human baby.
The 2 then plan to bring the child back to the humans but they'll need help, so enter Diego (Leary) the Saber Tooth Tiger who seems a little shady. It's now a race for the 3 to find the humans, give them the baby and dodge Diego's evil pack of Tigers and along the way realize how great it is to have your friends close by.
This is truly a great movie for the entire family. It's very sweet and touching and of course with the 3 stars of this movie, you can bet that there are a lot of wise cracks. The animation is also extremely good. It's very colorful and very vivid and all in all, looks great! I really can't think of any bad points to this movie because I thought that it was that good.
A very deserving 5 Star movie! I highly recommend this movie to any family and even a pretty good movie for everyone else. Also check out the other movies I mentioned as well, SHREK, TOY STORY and TOY STORY 2, A BUG'S LIFE and MONSTERS Inc. Check out all of these, trust me you won't be disappointed!
