Ice Age: The Meltdown

Cast: Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary, Seann William Scott, Josh Peck, Queen Latifah, Will Arnett, Jay Leno
Plot: Everything's going great for Sid (Leguizamo), Manny (Romano), and Diego (Leary), until a rip-off sales man, Fast Tony (Leno) predicts that the ice walls that keep the water out of where they live are going to melt. They don't believe him, until they see for themselves that the ice really is melting. Fast Tony then tell all of the animals to travel away from their homes to find a boat that will keep them safe. They all listen to him and start migrating towards where the boat he says the boat is. After a while, Manny becomes sad because he thinks he's the only mammoth left. You get to enjoy many songs from Sid around here about mammoths going extinct, and they rock. I would buy a CD if he made one.

They next meet another mammoth named Ellie (Latifah), along with her 2 possum "brothers", Crash (Scott) and Eddie (Peck). Yeah, that's right, a mammoth that thinks she's a possum. Weird, eh? Anyway, they decide to join Sid, Manny, and Diego on their trip to the boat. Along the way, Manny shows Ellie that she's not really a possum. Not much happens after this. Manny and Ellie develop an interest in each other.... umm.... what else.... oh yeah, you get treated to a great song by The Vultures (literally) called "Food, Glorious Food". As they're about to reach the boat, Ellie and her possum brothers get seperated from the other 3, and they almost die from the melting ice, until Manny saves them. Then all the water drains out and they all live happily ever after. And Sid becomes Manny's dog's son's son's pet.

Verdict: This movie was freaking hilarious. I think it was better then the first one by quite a bit really. 4 acorn-happy squirrel-like animals named Scrat out of 5. I mean come on: Possum mammoths + Sid singing + A great song by The Vultures = awesome movie. Check it out in theaters if you can.

Yup. We're possums.
