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 »

Ice age 3 was really funny and it stays true to the series. Same old characters, a whole new adventure that everyone at any age can enjoy.
I saw the critics and I thought to my self that it would be good, but I didn't expect much, but I really did enjoy it more than I thought. It may not be the best compared to the other Ice Age films, but it still a great thrill ride that the audience can enjoy.
And if you find a theater near you that has it in digital 3D, go and watch it in 3D, because the action and adventure will excite you even more than it actually does.
Normally people think since it's a third part, then the movie won't be that great, but hear me when I say that keep that thought out of your mind and parents, take your kids with you, they are sure to leave with a smile and a long lasting excitement for more.
100% enjoyable, its a 10!
