Storyline

Manny the woolly mammoth, Sid the sloth, Diego the saber-toothed tiger, and the hapless prehistoric squirrel/rat known as Scrat are still together and enjoying the perks of their now melting world. Manny may be ready to start a family, but nobody has seen another mammoth for a long time; Manny thinks he may be the last one. That is, until he miraculously finds Ellie, the only female mammoth left in the world. Their only problems: They can't stand each other--and Ellie somehow thinks she's a possum! Ellie comes with some excess baggage in the form of her two possum "brothers"-- Crash and Eddie, a couple of daredevil pranksters and cocky, loud-mouthed troublemakers. Manny, Sid and Diego quickly learn that the warming climate has one major drawback: A huge glacial dam holding off oceans of water is about to break, threatening the entire valley.

Trivia

Surprisingly, animals similar to the horned beavers did exist. Ceratogaulus was a horned rodent, with the horns likely used for defence. However, it was not closely related to beavers, belonging to a separate and now-extinct family, and lacked the large, flat tail which it has in the movie. It more closely resembled a marmot or gopher. See more »

Goofs

When Crash jumps onto Diego's shoulders, as he is reaching the ground, slow motion of the film reveals that part of his face disappears. See more »

Quotes

A lovely film with a great storyline.
19 April 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a lovely film. Great animation and a brilliant storyline for an animation film!

The characters are all lovable and there are a few extremely funny parts in it! Just little phrases and actions the characters do is hilarious!

Ice Age: The Meltdown follows the animals on their journey to find dry land when they discover that their lives are at risk if they stay put due to the ice melting.......there are some little adventures and discoveries along the way though!

If you have seen the first one you will like this and in case you are wondering......he is still trying to get his nut!

I think it is a must see for all ages, not just children.
