Top 10 Worst Things About the Ice Age Franchise

The Top Ten
1 They Won't Go Away

Man the first 3 were good which they shouldve ended the franchise right there. They need to cancel the 6th one I mean the 5th one I didn't even bother watching cause I knew it was gonna be bad

The fifth film in the Ice Age series showed the franchise has jumped the shark. What's next?
A villain takes over the world and the Herd have to become superheroes to stop him?

Actually, if they return the humans, that could make the sixth movie come close to Ice Age

Exactly! At least Home Alone stopped making movies after its fourth sequel.

2 Ice Age: Continential Drift

Poor Peaches was turned into your average run of the mill troubled teen character cliche in this movie. I do like how she's a accurate representation of teenagers, but what I DON'T like is Manny in this movie. He's been turned from a comedy machine into a annoying, overprotective abusive father in this one. As Peaches would say, I wish he wasn't her father and Buck would be instead

To be honest, the ONLY good thing to come from this movie is Captain Gutt. He was the first (Second if we're really counting the tigers from the first film) proper villain for the series. He was charming, ruthless and sadistic. He was evil for the sake of it and really acted as a foil for the Herd, mostly Manny. Despite all the weak writing and forced pop music along the film, Captain Gutt was the only character that was straight up enjoyable to watch. Heck, he even had his own villain song! - Daviddv0601

I hate this movie so much - Gamer231

Nicki Minaj and Drake don't deserve to be in an animated film.

3 Sid

In the 1st & 2nd he was quite funny but after that he just got annoying - Gamer231

Like people said, their personalities change, and they get worse!

He even kidnapped three baby dinosaurs!

In the first three films, Sid was funny. But in the fourth and fifth film, he just got so annoying and unfunny.

4 None of The Sequels Managed To Be As Good As The Original

So far even for good movies it's difficult to make a decent sequel, and those even better than the first one (toystory2, empire strike back, pokemon gold/silver, indiana jones and the last crusade, silence of the lambs) are even rarer, what failed with ice age is basically everything after the first one, it talks about a improvised group of animals that search for finding the family of a baby, is sad but funny too, meltdown is trash, bad characters, stupid plot, that "last mammoths" thing that make twilight or the one about padme and anakin good love stories... even worst about third, forth and fifth installaments, I won't talk about, but I'll just say one thing, good animations doesn't make a movie good

I loved the original Ice Age & it's GBA version. But its sequels & their gaming versions? Lame as it can barely help but be.

The second one killed the franchise. right down from innuendos to mean spirited overtones from the characters. plus, the two main villains in the movie were pretty pointless.

Lol I love the original; hate the others

5 They Were All Successful At The Box Office

We believe Rio's a little better than this movie & worst of all boring Robots.

I don't think the fifth was sucsessful, was it?

These movies woke up one morning married to a box office!
An ugly box office.

Yeah, and that's why they keep making sequels. For the $$$$

6 It's Not Funny Anymore

Imagine Ice Age crossovers.

It never was except to people who are easily amused.

At Least We Still Have Scrat And Buck To Make Us Laugh


7 Continental Drift Copied The 2nd Movies Plot

FINALLY! I thought I was the only one that thought that

I knew they were too similar!

8 None of The Characters Have Character Development

You're right! I hate those possums. I just want to stomp on them! They're so annoying, and stupid, and mean sometimes. they need to go away forever. that will save the franchise from freezing.

Including Manny, who's a overprotective annoying father in the 4th one

The only chacter who had good development was buck and his only in one movie

Buck was the only character in the sequels that had good character development. That is why he is my favorite in the IA series.

9 Bad Villians

I disagree with this. In fact, Ice Age has the best villains, with the exception of Collision Course, where the villains there were a major downgrade compared to the previous villains. Still, the villains from the first had a real good motive for being evil. They simply wanted to kill the boy because humans wiped out most of their pack. Then we went to the next villains such as those killer sea creatures that were mostly predators acting on instinct. Same may apply for Roody in Dawn of the Dinosaurs. Then we got Captain Gutt, who is by far the best villain in the franchise. He is charismatic, psychotic, ruthless, sadistic, etc. He was evil for the sake of being evil and perfectly served as a foil for the whole Herd. - Daviddv0601

You're right. the ice age series was never good at developing villains. In the first movie, Soto is just your typical rough leader of the pack. we never see him do anything bad and he gets killed in a pretty brutal way.

And in the second movie, cretaceous and maelstrom are just pointless. what was the point of having those two in the second movie? What purpose did they even have?

The villains are amazing you idiot!

I loved Soto though - RedTheGremlin

10 Peaches

She is an annoying mammoth trying to get the attention of Ethan and she is so willing to change who she is to get a boy. Seriously teens don't act the way she does. This movie just uses many teen stereotypes. Come on writers this was my favorite franchise. The fifth is worse.

I Honestly Don't Care About Her

She does nothing to the plot of the 4th film

She ruined Manny into being the usual overprotective dad!

The Contenders
11 There Will Be A 5th Coming In 2016

Some things just need to die.

The Only Good Thing I Can Say About This Is


They need to cancel this franchise, it's so bad.

You have to be joking. I liked the first three as a child, but now, it's ludicrous. Enough is enough. - PositronWildhawk

12 Mean Spirited Characters
13 No Ice Age Crossovers

This would make the franchise much worse...

Why is this even an item? Crossovers are always a bad idea because they usually combine two completely different things that have nothing in common at all!

Exactly! Ice age should crossover with Madagascar or Alvin and the Chipmunks or something.

Crossovers should not happen with Ice Age! All the films are good.

14 Scratte Doesn't Return

She's my favorite character, JUST HAVE HER CHARACTER RETURN DAMMIT!

It would of been great if she was a space nemesis to Scrat in Collision Course

15 Manny Being Overprotective and Grounding to Peaches

Manny is overprotective over Peaches, but he's still a good father. I hope you know what it feels like to be a father when you're an adult. But still, Peaches is the one that kept making Manny be an overprotective father.



16 They Forgot About the Humans and the Baby

Where the heck happened to them? And may I add in the sequels the animals progressively got more human?

17 Overabundance of Celebrity Voices

I remember when the original Disney movies didn't even use famous people as voice overs. I prefer it that way! I mean don't we get enough of famous people and then to have to hear their voices on cartoon movies! Overkill!

Ice Age Continental Drift is most guilty of this by having Drake and Nicki Minaj voicing in it.

It just hurts to hear Nicki Minaj's voice in an animated film.

Ye enough is enough

18 Characters who Cuss

Manny says" And the wild a$$ went home! "

The beaver said damn.
The beetle said crap.
No complaints there

19 Nicki Minaj Voicing Steffie

Why would they let a unlikable rapper to voice bratty Steffie?

All those teen mammoths were annoying!


20 They're Not Even Trying

They're not putting any effort into their story.
Seriously? Dinosaurs? Pirates? Now aliens?

How did it go from a movie about three cool animals taking a sweet little baby human back to his tribe into the most random sequels the world has ever seen?

Exactly, plots getting worse! along with reviews.

21 Scrat is Predictable Now

Scrat NEVER gets that stupid acorn, its getting old

22 Collision Course (5th movie) killed the franchise

The third ruined it, the fourth made it unoriginal and the 5th killed it, I agree on that

23 Manny

Manny the Mammoth has big head, tiny brain!

He was a hilarious mammoth to a pointless overprotective dad.

We should start an ice age hate club.


24 Diego

Diego Is Still Fine

25 It's Inappropriate

The Third Film Does Have Hidden Adult Jokes But They Are Funny

The fifth film is disgusting with its toilet jokes. - darthvadern

Bodily functions just simply aren't funny, poop, turd, farts, "accidental" face plants into butts. All stupid low IQ and doesn't belong in a kids show. These shows are terrible, along with plenty of other modern cartoons. Happy feet insults your intelegence.

How Is It Inappropriate?
