Sid, the well-meaning and kind primaeval sloth, along with a small group of inquisitive children, go out on a fascinating camping trip, to witness firsthand the infinite wonders of prehistoric nature. With Scrat, the indefatigable acorn-seeker, always trying to find the perfect nut, the team will soon discover that their adult guide is somewhat lacking the basic skills one needs to master to survive the wilderness--and to make matters worse--there is someone out there stalking them. Who is this mysterious follower? What will happen if Sid's clumsiness triggers a geological chain reaction of epic proportions? Written by Nick Riganas

What We've Come To Expect From 'Sid' - Laughs
6 May 2009 | by ccthemovieman-1See all my reviews

"Sid the Sloth," a hilarious co-star in the Ice Age animated feature films, stars in this short.....and doesn't disappoint. This is one funny sloth, and one humorous and clever cartoon. We get a "cameo" from "Scat," too, which is always a good thing. Also, the artwork is spectacular, at least on Blu-Ray. This really looks fantastic.

Sid's a camp counselor here and - you guessed it - a pretty inept one. The kids are wise-guys but Sid has a few zingers, too, giving one kid "a merit badge for whining." John Leguizamo does his normal superb job of voicing "Sid." He has a couple of his children doing voice-work in here, too, according to the ending credits.

In the end, we find out how Sid was instrumental in forming the Grand Canyon. I kid you not.

I saw this as a bonus feature on the "Horton Hears A Who" Blu-Ray DVD. If you have the DVD, don't miss this feature; you'll really laugh.
