Manny, Sid, and Diego discover that the Ice Age is coming to an end, and join everybody for a journey to higher ground. On the trip, they discover that Manny, in fact, is not the last of the wooly mammoths.
Monsters generate their city's power by scaring children, but they are terribly afraid themselves of being contaminated by children, so when one enters Monstropolis, top scarer Sulley finds his world disrupted.
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. The only chance of survival lies at the other end of the valley. So our three heroes, along with Ellie, Crash and Eddie, form the most unlikely ... Written by
The two sea reptiles that chase the Herd throughout the film are named Cretaceous and Maelstrom: Cretaceous, an ichthyosaur, is the purple crocodilian, while Maelstrom, the stout green reptile, is a pliosaur.

The back story for the villains is that they were frozen millions of years ago and kept in suspended movement. See more »
Opossums have a lifespan of 2-4 years. In the scene where Ellie meets the opossum parent and two clinging offspring assumed to be Crash and Eddie, she is an infant. If our related mammals the elephants are any clue, Ellie could not have possibly reached adult maturity before age 18. Her opossum brothers should have been long gone. See more »

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.
