Did You Know?

Trivia:
The characters of Buck and Rudy play out a story that is also found in "Moby Dick". Buck and Captain Ahab are both hunters, and both handicapped by a white animal that is so huge as to strain belief. The white animals, named "Rudy" and "Moby Dick", managed to handicap Buck and Ahab, tearing away an eye and a leg, respectively. The result is that Buck and Ahab, instead of becoming afraid of Rudy and Moby, become obsessed with the quest to get Revenge, hunting down the very beast that had hunted them. The fancy lines that Buck says when Rudy first appears sound like quotes from "Moby Dick", and the reference is never clearer than when Buck climbs to the very top of a spindly tree, above the cloud layer, holding a straight-ish branch like a spear ... or actually posing like a harpooner ready to hurl a harpoon at Rudy, who is moving just below the layer's top just like a whale starting to breech the surface of the water. Buck is not going to do much to Rudy with a spindly stick, and his favorite weapon is the tooth/knife. The dinosaur tooth is the same color/size/shape as a whale tooth. Rudy has been given his white color for many reasons, perhaps, but the similarity to Moby Dick is one strong reason. Captain Ahab's ship has a first mate named "Starbuck", another connection with "Buck". Finally, in both stories, both Buck and Ahab are so very obsessed with their hunt for their "enemy" that they abandon a choice of a more peaceful and sane life for their hunt.See more »
Goofs:
Factual errors: Rudy retains a gap in his teeth where Buck knocked one out, and seems to hold a grudge against him because of it. In reality, reptiles have an endless supply of teeth - they fall out and are replaced throughout the animal's life.See more »

Ice Age 3 is the return of true family films, 11 July 2009
Author: bearfaceproductions from Puerto Rico

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!
