Movie signage and the book version include a female sloth named Sylvia, who is not seen in the released movie. In the book, Sid manages to avoid accompanying her on the migration south, because she is interested in a commitment. See more »
When Manny pulls Roshan away from Sid and the two female sloths in the mud hole, Sid climbs out to chase him down and get Roshan back. When Sid catches up to Manny, the baby is mud covered from waist down, Sid has no mud on his fur. See more »
Drawings of the creatures appear over the credits. Most drawings were done by children of Blue Sky Studios employees. See more »
The DVD has several deleted scenes:
The first scene is Sid waiting for Sylvia the sloth and faking that aardvarks have to pay tolls in order to get past his cave.
The second scene has Sid and Sylvia talking about a relationship, but Sid doesn't want one. He uses a few passing glyptos to literally push her away from him.
The sabers talk about their plan for attacking the humans. This scene apparently never even got past the "animation" stage.
An amusing scene set during Diego, Sid, and Manny's first night with the baby. Sid throws away the baby's diaper saying, "No more fruit for you!"
Oscar and Zeke, the two smilodons that talk to Diego in the following scene comment about the smell.
The aforementioned "Sid and the Ladies" scene also appears. Wedge says the reason it was cut was, "It stopped the picture cold and no one made a sound after that scene."
Another scene immediately followed the "Sid and the Ladies" scene where Sylvia finds Sid after the ladies have kicked him in the crotch. The scene then has Sid feigning death by provoking Diego. Sylvia realizes that he's breathing and tells Diego to eat him. This would have been Sylvia's final appearance in the film. This scene remains in the final version, only with the two rhinos Carl and Frank, who sniff Sid and determine that he is "dead" and stalk off, disappointed.
Excellent computer-generated animated feature that makes a case for one of the finest films of 2002. It is the frozen era and prehistoric animals try to find their way to land that is warmer and drier. An early group of human hunters become the hunted themselves as a group of sabertooth tigers begin to plot revenge. As an attack occurs, a small infant child is taken out of harm's way. Enter a kind wooly mammoth (voiced by the priceless Ray Romano) and a silly sloth (voiced by John Leguizamo) who find the young child and decide to return it to the humans. It appears that a sabertooth tiger (Denis Leary) is helping the duo, but his motives are devious as he is trying to lead them all into a trap of other sabertooth tigers. The film is another great animated piece of film-making that has important messages for the youngsters and is also highly entertaining for all audiences. 5 stars out of 5.
