Storyline

One should always practice caution when walking on thin ice, especially when that frozen but brittle transparent substance almost covers the entire globe. Once more, the indefatigable sabre-toothed squirrel, Scrat, is in search for the perfect stash of winter provisions, unbeknownst to him, however, that his reckless hunt for nuts and that faint hairline crack on the ground may be the means for the creation of something utterly magnificent.

Entertains in such a short running time...
8 March 2011 | by TheLittleSongbirdSee all my reviews

I quite like the Ice Age films, they are colourful and entertaining with good characters, wit and voice acting. Scrat's Continental Crack-Up was really quite impressive, while I personally think the short could have been a tad longer, I was really taken with how much I was entertained in such a short running time.

The story is a very simple one, but you don't mind that at all when it goes at a great pace, while the animation is very good with great backgrounds, colours and designs of the characters and the content of the short is constantly very funny sometimes even hilarious for both kids and adults.

Scrat himself is a big part of the cartoon's success. He is so cute, funny and zany, and one of my favourite characters in the Ice Age films, and his character(persona, facial expressions and yelps) and misadventures here ceaselessly delight.

All in all, a very entertaining short and perfect to go with the Ice Age films. For Scrat fans, they will probably find they have a match made in heaven with Scrat's Continental Crack-Up. 8/10 Bethany Cox
