Mark Kermode labelled the film Ice Age 2 as "the death of narrative cinema", and he encouraged people to utter the phrase when leaving screenings of the film.

Mark criticised this particular film for consisting of nothing more than a collection of slapstick sequences with little to connect them. Mr Kermode gives a fuller description of why we are all doomed in this article, which appeared in his beloved Guardian.
