Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs opens with the stitched-together prehistoric family about to become a biological one: Manny (voiced by Ray Romano) and his mate Ellie (Queen Latifah) are expecting a baby mammoth. Unfortunately, this makes Sid the sloth (John Leguizamo) and Diego the saber-toothed tiger (Denis Leary) feel left out. Diego, who worries he’s losing his edge, decides to head out on his own, while Sid adopts three suspiciously large eggs that he’s found through a crack in the ice. Up to this point, the movie is perilously sappy--does anyone, particularly a kid, want to watch a kid’s movie about parenthood and impending middle age? Fortunately, the eggs turn out to be dinosaur eggs from a pre-mammalian underworld, and when the mama T-Rex comes to rescue her rambunctious little ones, Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs transforms into a delightful comic adventure. The emotional side of the Ice Age movies has always been a tad mawkish, so it’s smart that Dawn of the Dinosaurs emphasizes physical comedy. Clearly, the animators have been inspired by a wild fusion of Road Runner cartoons and Buster Keaton. The character of Scratte, with his non-verbal, monomaniacal efforts to get that last acorn (doubled in this movie with the addition of a female counterpart), is only the most obvious reflection of this sensibility. The animators have great fun with the differences in scale between the mammals and the dinosaurs, and the introduction of a deranged Australian weasel named Buck (Simon Pegg, Shaun of the Dead) pushes everything into Loony-Tune territory. Let Pixar tug at our heartstrings; Ice Age aims to tickle the funny bone and does a fine job of it. --Bret Fetzer

3.0 out of 5 stars Great movie, terrible value October 30, 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My children greatly enjoyed Episode Three in the ongoing saga of Ice Age and indeed it is probably the best so far, being funny and clever and very tight. There is plenty of visual humor, verbal humor, and situational humor and very little is over-played (though the birthing scene comes close to being working the joke too much). So the movie itself is a great addition to the family's DVD or BluRay collection. But this particular DVD double-pack is a shameless confidence trick. The ScratPack disc is utterly without merit. There are no new animated sequences and most of it is tedious in the extreme. It looks as if it took someone eight minutes to compile, though that might be exaggerating the effort and thought that went into it. There is absolutely no reason for anyone to buy this double-pack; just go for the movie alone.

1.0 out of 5 stars Example With What Is Wrong October 28, 2009
Understand where I am coming from. In the past we'd get a DVD for about $15 when the dvd was released. In that DVD (even past Ice Age dvds) we'd get special features. Not anymore. Now you get a DVD with only the movie on it for $15 (remind anyone of VHS?), but if you want the Special Features you got to spend $8 more for that. To top it off, it's not like they don't have room for the special features on the Movie DVD. They give us another container...twice as much storage is required of the buyers. The Marketing Wizs at Dream Works then package this as the Ice Age Dawn of the Dinosaurs Scrat Pack and tell you that you get extra. YOU DON'T GET EXTRA. YOU GET NOTHING SPECIAL. INSTEAD YOU GET ROBBED. While I'd like the features on the Scrat Pack, I am not spending $8 more to get my special features. I'm boycotting and others should boycott this also. I bet if you look on the Scrat Pack there is about 30 minutes of material. What a rip off.

1.0 out of 5 stars Cheaper Blu-ray contains all this -- plus Blu-ray! October 29, 2009
By T. Linn
For 50 cents less, the Blu-ray version of Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs contains a high-def version PLUS a DVD version and all of the extras included on the Scrat Pack disc. Someone tell me what I'm missing. Why would you ever spend more for this version?

This rating does not reflect my opinion of the 'film part' of this Pack but the Pack itself, of which the second DVD is called "The Scrat Pack" for no other reason than that it contains a couple of old short Scrat films and that's about it. A very cheap marketing trick to make you pay 50% more. Buy the film!

4.0 out of 5 stars Dawn of the Dinosaurs Worth the Wait January 31, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Iceage Three: Dawn of the Dinosaurs was well worth the wait. We thoroughly enjoyed the movie. It was Iceage and Land Before Time merged together. As usual Sid gets into trouble and the rest of the "herd" rescuses him. Their rescue mission has the common traits of a heros mission threats and all. This movie held up to what it promised through the previous two.

The Scrat Pack, however, was a bit of a dissapointment. We loved Scrat and all the shorts that went with him in the movies, and were expecting more from this DVD. What we got was a DVD of all the old scrat adventures, nothing new to view. Had I known this, I would have just purchased the Dawn of the Dinosaurs by itself. What's good about this DVD is that if you just need a scrat fix you don't have to pick through an Iceage movie, and you can enjoy one or all of the different Scrat adventures.

5.0 out of 5 stars A fitting end to the Ice Age trilogy November 4, 2009
The makers of Ice Age have done it once again! Ice Age 3 seems like the perfect capstone for the Ice Age trilogy. It might not be quite as hilarious as the first two movies, but it is pretty funny. Sid is as clueless as ever. Manny becomes a stressed out parent. Buck is a decent addition (best line: "He who has gas, travels at the back of the pack.").

More importantly, Ice Age 3 is a good all-round movie. The blu-ray version has great graphics and amazingly rich sound - easily the best of them. The movie has some exciting action scenes, including a ride on the back of a pteranodon reminiscent of Star Wars.

Granted the idea of a lost world filled with dinosaurs below the Ice Age snows doesn't make a whole lot of natural history sense. Then again, we're talking about mammoths who make fart jokes. That being said, the dinosaurs are well done (better in my opinion that Land of the Lost).

If you liked the first two Ice Age movies, don't miss out on this one!

3.0 out of 5 stars The "Actual" Movie was good, waste of packaging too... January 23, 2010
By Arya
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The third movie was good. I saw it in the movie theater in 3D and that was really neat. (Too bad the DVD couldn't be 3D). It was a real waste of money to get the Double DVD pack because the extra DVD that came with it only had about 3-5 minutes of new stuff on it and the rest you can find on the previous DVDs (the first two movies) as Special Features. I was very very disappointed. It was old stuff with one or two new ones and then the history of how Scrat came to be. Interesting if you are into the cartoon and movie creating business, but most people don't want to watch 10-20 minutes of that stuff.

When I heard that a 3rd Ice Age movie was in the works, at 2OTH Century-F0X and Blue Sky, I told my entire family and we were excited as ever to see our favourite characters on the big screen again, Roger Ebert was right, this film is hilarious! As a teenager, I still enjoy the Ice Age franchise, and I think this film was just awesome! We get to see a world that we'd probably never see again, and we get a new character thrown into the mix to, a weasel named Buck (played by Simon Pegg, of Shaun of the Dead and Spaced fame), who is very much like a prehistoric Crocodile Dundee. Also, Scrat, the acorn obsessed saber-tooth squirrel gets a girlfriend! Ooh! Anyway, buy Ice Age 3: Dawn of the Dinosaurs on Blu-ray and/or DVD!!!! You'll love it!

About the DVD:
I'd suggest getting the Scrat Pack, despite that it has more features than the "other DVD". The original single-disc DVD of Ice Age 3 contains just the audio commentary and that's it!

Does this include a Digital Copy too?
The digital copy is exclusive to the blu-ray combo pack. However the blu-ray combo pack includes a DVD copy of the film as well.
