There are many similarities between the film and Samuel Taylor Coleridge's 'The Rime Of The Ancient Mariner'. In the poem, the mariner's ship is overtaken by a storm and thrown to an unknown place surrounded by icebergs. Same event is seen in the movie too. Manny shouts, "How big is this ocean!" in dissatisfaction in the movie as their ship was unable to get to a shore. Similarly, in the poem, the sailors on the ship were desperately waiting to get to a shore after their ship was overtaken by a storm. When Sid, Manny and Diego retreat after the storm, the same situation is created as mentioned in the poem, 'A painted ship upon a painted ocean.' Sid also makes a reference to a line from the poem 'Rime of The Ancient Mariner', saying, "Water, water, everywhere, but not a drop to drink.", referencing to the line in the poem, 'Water, water, everywhere, nor any drop to drink."

Scrat is referred to as a rodent by one of the Scratlantians. He is clearly not a rodent, having large canine teeth and no visible incisors. Rodents have no canines and large, prominent incisors that never stop growing. See more »

What, what was that? Ellie, did you hear that?
I heard it, Manny; whatever it is, it's miles away.
Peaches, you all right? Where is she, no teenager is ever up early.

I loved Ice Age the first one to death when I first watched it. I own it and every once and awhile I go to my DVD cupboard and pick it up and watch it. I disliked the sequel, Ice Age: Meltdown. The second sequel i hated too. They added new characters and I missed the chemistry and the funny lines that happened between just Sid the sloth, Manny and Diego the sabre tooth tiger. They added new characters which were sometimes funny but I missed the same three from the first one. In this third sequel the team must have realized this by splitting Sid, Manny and Diego with Sid's funny, odd grandma sloth away from the others on a race to get back to the herd and to get rid of these pirates. The pirates are entertaining as ever and very funny, the monkey played by Peter Dinklage is really good and the main plot flies along at a terrific pace. The jokes are fresh (most of them) and funny and you can't help liking this film. The side plots can get a bit cliché but I ignored them.
