Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is the third move in the popular Ice Age franchise. Picking up up where the second movie left off, Manny (Ray Romano) and Eliie (Queen Latifah) have settled down, and are ready to start a family. This new focus on family over friends leaves Manny’s companions Sid the Sloth (John Leguizamo) and Diego the tiger (Dennis Leary) to feel neglected and unappreciated. When he stumbles upon a cache of dinosaur eggs, Sid decides to raise them as his own. Matters are complicated, however, when the rightful mother of the eggs appears, looking for her offspring. Sid is taken deep underground to the dinosaurs lair, and his friends must rescue him. They are joined by a new character, a swashbuckling weasel named Buck (Simon Pegg). Scratch the squirrel (Chris Wedge) also returns, this time, meeting his match in his quest for acorns.
