MOVIE: Ice Age 2: The Meltdown
TEN, 6.30pm, PG (2006)
Scrat, the acorn-obsessed squirrel, is back, and this time he has discovered global warming. Manny the mammoth (voiced by Ray Romano), Diego the tiger (Denis Leary) and Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo) are still inexplicably co-existing, and are thrilled when the thawing ice pack brings a little sunshine into their lives. But they soon discover it will flood their valley. In their quest to save their home, they encounter a female mammoth (Queen Latifah), a turtle (voiced by Jay Leno) and some thawed-out sea monsters bent on destruction. The same spot-on mix of children’s and veiled adult humour as the original make this a delight.
