In Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs, the sub-zero heroes are back, on an incredible adventure for the ages. Scrat is still trying to nab the ever-elusive nut (while, maybe, finding true love); Manny and Ellie await the birth of their mini-mammoth; Diego the Saber-toothed Tiger wonders if he's growing 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 ventures into a mysterious underground world. Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs has been rated PG for some mild rude humor and peril.
