Those prehistoric mammals are back at it again in this third Ice Age installment. This time around Manny and Ellie Mammoth are preoccupied with the impending arrival of their first child; a fact which causes aging saber-toothed Diego to question his place in the herd and fills the head of lisping simpleton Sid the Sloth with parental longings of his own. It’s no wonder then that after accidentally falling into a underground ice cave and discovering three rather large unattended eggs Sid immediately adopts them and sets about trying to hatch a family of his own. Unbeknownst to either Sid or his friends however, the eggs belong to one very angry T. Rex mother from a subterranean Land that Time Forgot who not only comes seeking her babies, but drags the hapless sloth back to her underground jungle as well. Led by the jungle’s sole warm-blooded denizen, a decidedly whacko weasel named Buck, Sid’s friends brave lava falls, ferocious dinosaurs, and treacherous terrain in order to rescue the furry little cretin. But the underground world contains one additional threat more terrifying than all the rest put together, and the raggedy band of rescuers are about to cross its path... Filled with cartoon silliness and gentle peril (a stint in a carnivorous plant is cute while an aerial dogfight with pterodactyls must have been breathtaking in widescreen 3D) this colourfully animated kiddie show contains enough adult humour, including a few gay innuendos, to keep mom and dad entertained while an abundance of sugary sweetness reminds them that they’re not six-years old anymore. A pair of squabbling possums provide some nice comedic diversions but an ongoing side story involving a couple of crazy squirrels fighting over an acorn soon becomes tiresome. Overall, this is a beautifully rendered bit of fluff with some sly one-liners, a soaring musical score, and celebrity voices that are bang on.

I wasn't the biggest fan of the 1st 2 movies, but this one is very well done. Both of my kids loved it. Some scary scenes for younger kids with the 2 larger carnivore dinosaurs but great action scenes, some hilarious jokes and great animation. The blu-ray quality is excellent. highly recommended for all kids over 3.

This it one of my favorite movies. I mean, mammoths in dinosaur times? Weasels lost their minds? A T-Rex protecting a stinky, fungi-colored sloth? Come on! What movie could be funnier? It's true, this is the fourth highest-grossing animated film of all time, with a full box office of $886,686,817.

I LOVE This film! Buck, saying he's married to a pineapple, is Hilarious! This is actually the fourth most wealthy animated film ever, and two more films in theaters now, MADAGASCAR 3,EUROPE'S MOST WANTED, is awesome , but ICE AGE 4:CONTINENTAL DRIFT, is quite intense!

Main story of a lost land with dinosaurs is interesting. However, the sideline story of the squirrel took up too much of the movie. This made is seem like two movies in one and made the film seem disjointed overall.
