This movie was not a good use of my time.
I was deeply annoyed by the 3 new characters- Ellie, Crash, and Eddie. It wasn't really funny, and the main characters are constantly in peril, or on death's door. In the beginning, there's a sequence of a bunch of young kids beating Sid with a stick. I know they're only animals, but I hated this part because A.) Who teaches their kids to hit and beat? and B.) It's a bad influence for kids. There were a lot of things in Ice Age: The Meltdown that weren't necessary to the plot, just thrown in the movie, like : Sid and the mini sloths, and Sid' s summer camp. All of the sequences with Scrat the hybrid squirrel, I found to be stupid and boring. Some parts of those sequences were just plain gross, like Scrat getting his head pecked in by a vulture. There is some language, such as mentions of "crap" and " ass". Overall, I give it a 2 - star rating. I would've given it 1, but I did enjoy seeing Manny, Diego, and Sid interacting again. This movie is not worth your time nor your money.
