How We Determine Our Grades

Year One takes a dark comedic look at the ancient world, as opposed to the same premise told in a serious way in the movie 10,000 BC. Rather than humans, the animated films Ice Age and Ice Age 2: The Meltdown follow the trials of a group of animals surviving in a prehistoric landscape. A Harold Ramis script you may enjoy is Groundhog Day.
