From Amazon.co.uk

It's 20,000 years ago and there's a bit of a nip in the air as the Ice Age kicks off. Manfred the well-meaning mammoth, Sid the fast-talking sloth and Diego the duplicitous sabre-tooth tiger form a reluctant and unlikely alliance when they come across a helpless human baby. As they try to return the tot to his migrating tribe, the trio must battle more than just the elements in this harsh world of predators and prey. There's plenty of light relief from the dramatic tension and superb action sequences, notably in the form of the brilliant comic invention Scrat, an apparently insane sabre-tooth squirrel who steals any scene in which he--and his acorn—appear (although a flock of keen but hapless dodos give him a close run for the film's comic laurels).

Featuring the voice talents of Ray Romano, Denis Leary and John Leguizamo, Ice Age is a thrilling, chilling comedy adventure that's undeniably cool.

On the DVD: Ice Age on DVD boasts a whole host of special features, including commentary by director Chris Wedge and co-director Carlos Saldhona, deleted scenes and trailers. The highlight of the bonus material is the exclusive short "Scrat's Missing Adventure" but for the real nitty-gritty go to "Under the Ice". This contains numerous featurettes of varying lengths, including "The Making of Ice Age", "Behind the Scenes", "Art of Effects" and "Sid's Voice Development". These tell you pretty well everything there is to know about the film and its creation. For additional humour check out the brief "Scrat Reveals" segment and Sid's commentary sequences. --Helen Baker

5.0 out of 5 stars An Unforgettable Film - when's Ice Age 2?? 25 Oct 2002
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I saw Ice Age twice at the pics - and bought the video the day it came out (I'm a 35yr old female, so this isn't just for kids or male 'kidults'!). Ice Age is pure, simple entertainment from start to finish. The animation is sharp, vivid and exceptionally well done, with subtle emotions being conveyed perfectly. The pace of the film is spot on and there's no cringeworthy 'let's break into a song' moments. If you enjoyed the wit and quick one-liners of Shrek, or if you're simply a fan of lush computer generated animation - buy Ice Age, you won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Marvellous fun for kids aged 3 - 103 11 Sep 2002
By Bryn
Format:DVD
In the modern genre of computer animated kids films, this ranks among the very best. Unlike so many kids films, adults will enjoy every minute of this one - with or without the kids.
It's a simple story, of course - my 3 year old had no problems following the plot. But there are endless background funnies and asides for the grown ups that make this film a gem. Like Shrek, the heroes of this film are about as imperfect as they come. Much of the humour comes from the interactions of the 3 main characters, none of whom particularly want each other's company.
Lisping Sid (lishping shid) is hilarious throughout, and the squirrel who turns up between scenes will split your sides.
With none of the gushing sentimentality that Disney relentlessly pump out, this film is way out in front of other recent mediocrity, such as Dinosaur or - God help us - Jimmy Neutron. In my book, it even beats Monsters Inc for all round family entertainment.
This is the best kids film since Shrek and is a lot more entertaining than many recent adult titles.
Buy it - however old you are!

5.0 out of 5 stars Ice age 21 April 2004
Format:DVD
This special addition DVD has got to be one of the funniest family films Ihave seen in a long time. It encompasses entertainment for the wholefamily, characters that appeal to the kids, Jokes and play on words toentertain the adults, and graphics that amaze everyone. Especially onceyou have seen the extras where they explain how they did the specialeffects and how the story came about.This film is a must for anyone whoenjoyed films like toy story or monsters inc. Buy it you wont regret it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A beautiful film 3 April 2007
By Tonkfan
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A wonderful film that's both laugh-out-loud funny and incrediby touching. Without being twee or sugary, it tells the beautiful story an odd little disfunctional group that becomes a loving family, brilliantly demonstrating how the bonds of love and friendship and loyalty can help us get through anything.

It's a must-see for anyone, but can't help feeling it might be especially helpful to any of us who come from more 'unusual' families/backgrounds. In that respect, it reminds me of the equally wonderful Australian road movie Priscilla Queen of the Desert (don't laugh at that until you've watched them both). Both films share the same messages about how the families we 'make' can be just as important as the families we are born into.

Wonderful for children and adults, this is one of the best cartoons I've ever seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Slick as hell 9 Aug 2005
Format:DVD
Probably the best computer generated film thats not Pixar, Ice Age is full of quirky animal characters that are brillantly animated and voiced. A laughed my socks off at the crazy jokes and was dazzled with the bright living world the studio had created. Scrat has to be one of the best characters ever created. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars I feel Blu 9 April 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
What a marvelous addition to Blu Ray Ice Age certainly makes. The film itself is simply top notch with a well written story line and is brought back to life here on Blu Ray. The picture is very detailed in HD, but to be honest it was also very good on DVD as well. Its perhaps not the pristine quality of Toy Story when it comes to Blu Ray transfers, but never the less is still worthy of purchasing it on Blu Ray. Where I feel Ice Age really comes to life is with its soundtrack to which David Newman I must say as done an excellent job with the sound for this film. Which is here presented in DTS 5.1 HD Master. They have gone to town with this format and made excellent use of it, and its simply gorgeous and well detailed with superb balance all around it's 6 channels.

There's not much in the way of extras here, but there is a nice animated short of Scrat that's very funny. Ice Age is a truly fantastic animated film created by Blue Sky Studio's which is certainly in the same class a Pixar without a doubt. It well worthy of its 5 stars here, and a tremendous addition to my Blu Ray collection. I suggest you add it to your own, it will not fail to disappoint.

5.0 out of 5 stars 7 YEARS OLD BUT STILL LOOKING GOOD!! 26 Jun 2009
Format:Blu-ray
If you want a good blu ray experience look no further than this childrens classic film which is brillant. The film is sheer brillance with laughs and a great story line which kept me and my two little girls glued to the TV screen. I have seen this on the old DVD version and comparing it to the DVD blu ray you would not believe the difference it is very impressive. I sure alot is down to the type of TV and player you run but if you are just starting out give this ago you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Entertainment 31 Dec 2003
By Mo VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
When I first went to watch this movie I was weary as it was not made by Disney, but then nor was Shrek, and I thoroughly enjoyed that too.
Ice Age is about a journey and adventure to return a human child to its tribe by a Sloth, Sabre Tooth Tiger and Mammoth. The personalities of these characters are so different which leads to firstly clashing and later becoming friends. There are plenty of great humour which adults will catch on immediately, but kids most likely will not. The antics these characters get up to and the journey makes this movie an enjoyable experience for both adults and kids.
The sounds and animation are crisp, and easily on par with Pixar. The extra features on the DVD features the Sloth commentating on cut-outs and extra scenes. The extra features are not Mammoth size, but enough to keep one entertained.
I highly recommend this movie for all ages, humorous, fun, and can be watched over and over. It's a movie for all ages.
