Nothing like the first one, that's for sure
Honestly, the first Ice Age film is so much better than all of the sequels, it's ridiculous.
The sequels, including this one, all have rotten plots with annoying details, and an over-reliance on star voices. This one has JLo as a "love interest" for Diego, voiced by Dennis Leary. Couple that with Queen Latifah and Ray Romano, and you have a film that relies heavily on the idea that viewers will be entertained by those stars' voices coming out of the animated characters.
AND, I amused myself, when not sleeping through this film, by trying to answer to my own satisfaction whether Fox is deliberately trying to undermine scientific understanding by presenting a historical view of the world that makes no sense and is without regard to accepted timelines for evolution and world history. Continental Drift is presented as fast moving land masses that crash like cars. Humans are gone from this film, but were present in the first film, etc.
