When his new father-in-law, King Harold falls ill, Shrek is looked at as the heir to the land of Far, Far Away.

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.
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 »
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.
