Spoiled by their upbringing and unaware of what wildlife really is, four animals from the New York Central Zoo escape, unwittingly assisted by four absconding penguins, and find themselves in Madagascar.
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.
The Dragon Warrior has to clash against the savage Tai Lung as China's fate hangs in the balance. However, the Dragon Warrior mantle is supposedly mistaken to be bestowed upon an obese panda who is a novice in martial arts.
Back when the Earth was being overrun by glaciers, and animals were scurrying to save themselves from the upcoming Ice Age, a sloth named Sid, a woolly mammoth named Manny, and a saber-toothed tiger named Diego are forced to become unlikely heroes. The three reluctantly come together when they have to return a human child to its father while braving the deadly elements of the impending Ice Age.Written by
When Roshan is crying and they're trying to figure out why before the melon scene, Sid picks him up after the notion of BM is mentioned. When he says 'Why am I the poop checker?' he spreads his arms, and is no longer holding the baby. The camera wasn't on Manny long enough for Sid to put Roshan down. See more »

The DVD has several deleted scenes:
The first scene is Sid waiting for Sylvia the sloth and faking that anteaters 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 armadillos 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 tigers 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.
