Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs*Review*

Since Ice Age 2: The Meltdown, life has been going pretty well for some of the characters in the movie and not so ideal for others. Manny(voiced by Ray Romano) and Ellie( voiced by Queen Latifah) the mammoths have become a couple and are expecting a little one, while Diego(Denis Leary) and Sid(John Leguizamo) are finding their lives are lacking.

Seeing how happy Manny and Ellie are, Diego decides it's time for him to leave because this isn't the life he wants to lead. Sid on the other hand doesn't want to leave, but is finding himself increasingly lonely besides the happy mammoth family. When Sid is insulted by his two best friends, he goes off on his own, determined to prove them wrong and finds himself a parent of 3 unhatched dinosaur eggs.

Where did those eggs come from? You and I might ask, but Sid didn't care-All he knew was he was a 'mama.' When Manny finds out Sid has stolen those eggs, he demands they be taken back to where they were found. Of course Sid doesn't listen and unsuspectingly one morning, those eggs hatch.

Before long, the Real Mama comes looking for her stolen babies and in the process of reclaiming them, takes Sid and his friends on another adventure to an unknown and forgotten world full of new and interesting characters, comic scenes and untold danger.

My Thoughts:

I was quite a fan of Ice Age and Ice Age 2, so when I started seeing previews for a 3rd Ice Age, I was very excited. Yes, that may seem very childish, but what can I say!? I'm a kid at heart ;-)

I can tell you I'm a BIG sucker for a real good animated film, and this movie didn't disappoint! Even though it's a threequal(is that what you would call it? Or maybe triqual?), it followed the second movie wonderfully to wear you wouldn't be lost and it also had a new and fresh plot that set it apart from the other two movies.

This is a great movie to see with your family(especially the little ones)! I would suggest if you haven't seen Ice Age 2: The Meltdown, you should invest some time into watching it before seeing this movie because it's one of those you would be missing out on a lot of insider information if you didn't.

It's a very heartwarming film(like most animated films seem to be) and will have you laughing along throughout the whole 94 minutes. The ending is a whole 'Awwww' moment too. Lol

**This is an opinion solely based on my thoughts and opinions of the movie in question and no one else's. I was not influenced one way or another to write the subject matter in this review, so if you don't like it or don't agree with it, that is your choice and I fully respect it so please extend me the same curtsy**
