Manny, Sid, and Diego discover that the ice age is coming to an end, and join everybody for a journey to higher ground. On the trip, they discover that Manny, in fact, is not the last of the woolly mammoths.
Find out why the birds are so angry. When an island populated by happy, flightless birds is visited by mysterious green piggies, it's up to three unlikely outcasts - Red, Chuck and Bomb - to figure out what the pigs are up to.
Scrat's epic pursuit of his elusive acorn catapults him outside of Earth, where he accidentally sets off a series of cosmic events that transform and threaten the planet. To save themselves from peril, Manny, Sid, Diego, and the rest of the herd leave their home and embark on a quest full of thrills and spills, highs and lows, laughter and adventure while traveling to exotic new lands and encountering a host of colorful new characters.
Scrat's storyline parodies science fiction films such as Alien (1979), Prometheus (2012), and The Martian (2015). Though, it mainly spoofs Gravity (2013) with both films sharing the same music in their trailers and a reference of a character's death. See more »
When Scrat is banging around the planets shortly after first leaving Earth, causing them to bounce around like balls in a game of pole, Saturn is shown to have bounced through space, off the rings, and to role into the center. This is not possible considering that the rings would first have to have a center of gravity to orbit around before they could form, and the rings are made out of small chunks of ice, would not likely be able to take the collision of a planet of that size, causing them to be scattered upon impact.

Neil deBuck Weasel:
Since the beginning of time, we have wondered how the universe came to be. A gloriously orchestrated plan? A chance series of events? Or something much, much... dumber?

We will be happily watching this again and again and again...
My youngest would watch a movie so many times you would start to quote it in your sleep. But when the film is as great at the Ice Age movies, you don't mind. I was concerned that this one could not be as hilarious as the others and I am so glad I was worried for nothing. Until now "Dawn of the Dinosaurs" was our family's go to Ice Age movie, but this one is even better... and I didn't think that was possible. In addition to having lots of silly laughs for the kids, there is a ton of great humor - great clean humor - just for adult belly laughs. And an actual plot, which some kids movies tend to forget. It has such a strong, positive, family message. Every member of our family agrees that this is one to own, each of us for different reasons. So here is a huge thumbs up from our gang, ages 7 to 42.
