This film and Ice Age (2002) are the only two films in the franchise to be nominated for the Saturn Award for Best Animated Film. Both also didn't win, they lost to Spirited Away (2002) and Monsters Vs. Aliens (2009) respectively. See more »
In the movie, a relict population of dinosaurs continued breeding for nearly 65,000,000 years after their kindred became extinct. They have been sequestered away, allowing them to evolve to larger sizes as the competition would be more fierce and would need to grow bigger for the need for resources. Also, 65,000,000 years is sufficient to evolve whole new taxonomic families and orders, as mammoths, sloths, cats and humans sprung from humble roots in a fraction of that time. Since the scope of this "what if" scenario can accommodate many speculations, alleged inaccuracies about size, color, posture, diet, etc., become redundant. See more »

Not a bad flick. I don't remember liking the first one, skipped the second one and the only reason I went to see this one was because it was a "sneak preview" that started right after the movie I had gone to see and it was in 3D. I recommend seeing this one in 3D as it was worth the extra couple dollars. I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed it. The story was really stupid and didn't make any sense (dinosaurs living under the ice???), but it kept me interested the entire movie, partly because of the hilarious side story with the acorn loving animal and an excellent job by Simon Pegg as Buck the weasel(I just got done watching his TV show "Spaced" so maybe I am a little partial), who I had no idea was going to be in the movie. This movie also did a wonderful job of keeping everyone in the audience interested. The theater was packed and the only things you heard besides the movie was popcorn chomping and laughter, lots of laughter. Definitely worth seeing at the theater.
