Manny, Sid, and Diego discover that the Ice Age is coming to an end, and join everybody for a journey to higher ground. On the trip, they discover that Manny, in fact, is not the last of the wooly mammoths.
The three best of the disbanded Musketeers - Athos, Porthos, and Aramis - join a young hotheaded would-be-Musketeer, D'Artagnan, to stop the Cardinal Richelieu's evil plot: to form an alliance with enemy England by way of the mysterious Milady. Rochefort, the Cardinal's right-hand man, announces the official disbanding of the King's Musketeers. Three, however, refuse to throw down their swords - Athos the fighter and drinker, Porthos the pirate and lover, and Aramis the priest and poet. Arriving in Paris to join the Musketeers, D'Artagnan uncovers the Cardinal's plans, and the four set out on a mission to protect King and Country. Written by
A rival TriStar version was also in development at the same time as this film, with star Johnny Depp and director Jeremiah S. Chechik attached. Ultimately, it fell through. Oliver Platt had also been approached to play Porthos in that version as well. Interestingly, Chechik would direct Platt two years later in the film Tall Tale (1995). See more »

Did I miss anyone?
Congratulations, Porthos. You brought down the house.
Oh, drat. I was trying to hit Rochefort.

I know it's hard to adapt a book into a movie, I know books and films are different media, I know movies are always worse than novels they are based on... But this is too much. This film lacks any connection to Dumas's classic, save the character's names. It also lacks a decent story, decent lines and decent acting. Tim Curry is quite enjoyable as a Disney-fied version of Richelieu, and some (very few, actually) one-liners are well-placed, but that's all. With the money and the cast they spent making this pile of garbage, they could have done much more.
