The last movie John Leguizamo was in involving dinosaurs, was Super Mario Bros. (1993). Ironically, both films involved dinosaurs surviving after their extinction in a "hidden" world, and both featured the song "Walk the Dinosaur". See more »
The 3 eggs are falling and Ellie manages to catch the third one. Then Sid walks down to where she is, carrying the other 2 eggs in his hands. But a minute later, (when Manny discourages him) he puts the eggs to the wooden sledge waiting nearby. The sledge was not there when Sid walked down. In fact it gets lost when Sid and the eggs are tossed into the air a few minutes ago. See more »
Frankly, I was shocked this movie was so good. I mean, sequels aren't supposed to this entertaining, are they? This Ice Age series - three films, so far - just keeps getting better and better, funnier and funnier.
I think the key to their success is discovering what the movie's fans liked and putting those two characters in larger roles. I am speaking of "Sid The Sloth," who is always hilarious and voiced magnificently by John Leguizamo. "Sid" has more lines in this movie than the other two, I would venture to say.....and that's fine with me and most other folks.
The other "character" is "Skrat," the squirrel, who is joined by a female squirrel. "Skrat" has the hots for her, but she's still no competition when it comes to the elusive acorn. Nothing is more important than holding onto one of those and both squirrels are very funny in their battles for possession of that acorn.
As for the story, just picture Sid pretending to be a mom to a threesome of baby dinosaurs. That's all you need to know - it's pretty wild. In all, this is an extremely funny film which also looks, as the other two did, fabulous on Blu-Ray.
