Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs Scrat is still trying to nab the ever elusive nut (while, maybe, finding true love); Mannie and Ellie await the birth of their mini-mammoth; Diego the saber-toothed tiger wonders if he's grown too "soft" hanging with his pals and Sid the Sloth gets into trouble when he creates his own makeshift family by hijacking some dinosaur eggs. On a mission to rescue the hapless Sid, the gang enters into a mysterious underground world, where they have some close encounters with dinosaurs, battle flora and fauna, run amuck, and meet a relentless, one-eyed, dino-hunting weasel named Buck.

Entertainment Weekly said "the whole trippy-fauna look of the movie is lost-world magical, but Dawn of the Dinosaurs just isn't very funny. It lopes and slogs where the first two Ice Age movies popped."
"With appreciably greater emphasis on action than its predecessors, and clever use of 3-D trickery to enhance storytelling as well as offer spectacle, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs could prove the third time really is the charm." Variety
"All in all, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs is an improvement over its massively forgettable predecessor: generally inoffensive (save perhaps for history buffs), a bit more charming than most of the non-Pixar competition, and frivolous in the best possible sense." Cinematical
"Dawn of the Dinosaurs is a sometimes lively, sometimes listless wilderness adventure that will keep the kids entertained for a little while. You'll have to decide if that's worth the pumped up price it cost to experience the mood swings in 3-D." Los Angeles Times
