Film review:- ICE AGE!
Again not the most original film on the block, but this one scores highly!   This film is better than Monsters Inc.  and has a lot more comic moments in than Toy Story!  The film is an arctic variation on Jungle Book,  set in the Ice Age. It begin with a slightly  offbeat, comic book, tangental  subplot about a zany Squirrel who is guarding a nut....  This is a very surreal, but loveable film, well worth the wait since last year when the adverts started to come out.  The real plot is set during the Ice Age, has  three main characters, a saber tooth tiger, a sloth, and a woolly mammoth  who find a lost human infant, and they try to return him to his tribe. This is only because the sloth kept badgering them into it and asking if he could keep it.  I have to say yet again...  Watch out for the disasters caused by the Squirrel.  You may need restraints at times as its Mr. Bean acts of sheer stupidity capture the audience, just getting funnier as it goes on.  I think he might get a film of its own!  This film appears to have appeal across the whole age range, with pensioners laughing as heartily as the youngsters. Not the most memorable film  maybe but good wholesome family entertainment.

Five out of Five for this nice looking picture.  I have to say that this could become a cult classic.
