Ice Age: Dawn of The Dinosaurs arrives in 3-D and it's a silly, fun escape for parents and kids.

Manny and Ellie are expecting a baby and Scrat is still looking for his elusive acorn.

Don't expect an Oscar contender, after all, this is part three and in 3-D, but do expect a plot that involves plenty of slapstick, a daring rescue, and of course, dinosaurs.

The originality is gone, but the voices are back and familiar, in this average-at-best summer sequel.
