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:
The universe: A vast expanse of space and matter. It includes all that we see, and all that we know. 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?

When the 20th Century Fox logo appears, the X in the logo got lit up. This is similar to the Fox X-Men films, where the X in the logo stays for a second longer when the logo fades away. See more »
OK sequel. Very Standard, everything you love about Ice Age, if you love it. (and nothing more).
Here we go again! Milking everything you got out of a franchise. They say this is the final chapter of Ice Age, but we'll see how much money it makes to be sure.
Nothing overly imaginative about the film as the tribe attempt to survive a big rock about to hit Earth.
It was filled with good jokes that made me laugh hard throughout. It better with comedians like Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary and Simon Pegg, voicing the main charters. Although, four sequels made for too many main characters for any of the all-star cast to fully shine .
The animation was good, but nothing new stood out (I hear it only takes eight mouths to do these movies)but I really like the character design. Plus it's worth seeing for some great 3D images.
But the film works best if you are a huge fan of the ones before it(especially if your a fan of Scat, the saber tooth squirrel who has particularly created the entire universe in an effort to get that nut) . Without having that connection, it's a bit bland.
