Ice Age: The Meltdown

Synopsis: Manny the woolly mammoth, Sid the sloth, Diego the saber-toothed tiger, and the hapless prehistoric squirrel/rat known as Scrat are still together and enjoying the perks of their now melting world. Manny may be ready to start a family, but nobody has seen another mammoth for a long time; Manny thinks he may be the last one. That is, until he miraculously finds Ellie, the only female mammoth left in the world. Their only problems: They can't stand each other--and Ellie somehow thinks she's a possum! Ellie comes with some excess baggage in the form of her two possum "brothers"-- Crash and Eddie, a couple of daredevil pranksters and cocky, loud-mouthed troublemakers. Manny, Sid and Diego quickly learn that the warming climate has one major drawback: A huge glacial dam holding off oceans of water is about to break, threatening the entire valley. The only chance of survival lies at the other end of the valley. So our three heroes, along with Ellie, Crash and Eddie, form the most u

Oh boy!

This global warming is killing me!


is too hot. the ice age was too cold,

What would it take to make you happy?

This, I like!

No running Jane! Camp rules,

Make me, Sloth!

Make me, sir!

Its all about respect,

Sarah. You just ate! Wait an hour!

Hector! No, no! You can't pee-pee there!

Ok, ok! there is fine,

Ashley! Stop picking your,



, you're supposed to wear blindfolds!


Hey, it's my turn to hit the sloth!

, mine. mine, mine, mine!

Hey! You didn't have any candy in you!

Lets bury him!!

Hey, hey! Whoah,

Who said you kids can torture the sloth?

Manny, don't squash their creativity,

Hey Manny! Diego!!

My bad mammal-jammel!

Wanna give a sloth a hand?

Look, I opened my camp!

Come forth and sit,

It means camp of Sid!


Youre now an idiot in two languages,

Shhhh, !

not in front of the K-l-D-G!

These little guys love me! Right, Billy?

Dont make me eat you!

Funny, kid!

That's why they're called kids!

I told you Sid,

Youre not qualified to run a camp,

Oh! Since when do qualifications

have anything to do with childcare, ?

Besides, these kids look up to me,

Im a role model to them!

I can see that,

You guys never think I can do anything,

but Im an equal member of this herd!

I made this herd, !

, and you need

to start treating me with some respect!!

Come on! Sid!

Sid! We were just kidding!!


Let's play pin the tail on the mammoth!!


Can you stop!

I'm gonna get some respect!!

Ill show 'em!

And so, in the end,

the little burro reached his mommy,

and they lived happily ever after,

Good job!

Question! Why does the burro go home?

Why doesn't he stay with the rabbit?

Because. He wanted to be with his family

I think he should go with the girl burro!

, That's a better love story!

OK! Well, when you tell

your burro story, thats what he'll do.

'Burro' is a demeaning name,

Technically, it's called a wild ass!

Fine. The wild ass boy came home,

, to his wild ass mother,

See! Thats why I called it a burro!

Could the burro have a grazing problem?

- That would make him more, relatable,


Its not believable!

- Do burrows eat their young?

- It's not a very satisfying ending!

Sometimes I throw up!

They lived happily ever after,

You can't get more satisfying than that!

One big happy family!

Thats the way its supposed to be!

Then, where's your big, happy family?

Then, the

hungry tiger eat the pesky little kids!!

- You ok, buddy?

- Sure, why not?!

- I just thought you,

- Story times over, the end!

- Out of the way! Run for your lives!

- Hey, watch it!

Where's everybody going?

The world's coming to an end!

What are you talking about?

Fast Tony!

He says the world's going to flood!


I hold in my hand a device so powerful,

it can actually pull air,

right out of the sky!!

Gather round, gather round!

Pardon me, do you have gills ma'am?

So you can't breathe under water?

My assistant here will demonstrate!

Hey, I can smell the ocean!

What are you doing, ?

I can't sell that now, !!

You suck

air through your mouth you moron!!

If you're a pupil

of mine, and I'm starting instruction,


have plenty of air for eons to come!

Of course, don't stay buried!

Why are you scaring

everybody with this doomsday stuff?

Im trying to make a living here pal,

Its all part of my weather forecast!

The 5 day outlook is calling

for intense flooding, followed by,

the end of the world, !!

With a slight chance of patchy sunshine

, later in the week

Come on! Don't listen to him,

Fast Tony

would sell his own mother for a grape!
