    Don't underestimate the power of cheesy cartoon animals. Kids eat that stuff up.

    What exactly did you see? Ice Age 3, a $100+ million, CGI movie opened with a little more than $13 million while TF, a movie that has already grossed over $240 Million in 8 days took in more than $10 million. On a Wednesday, no less. Let's see what the weekend has in store before the doom and gloomers run rampant chanting "I told you so!!".

    Perhaps the negative reviews from the critics turned away other potential customers.
    Also Ice Age 3 has a pregnant cute mammoth whereas ROTF had ugly bike bots and Ice Age 3 has dinosaurs too so TF3 needs to fight back with Dinobots and Mammoth robots and Cheetor and Rattrap.

    Highly doubt that. The general public seems to love it, and people are more likely to trust the word of mouth from friends and family.

    As for this:

    1.) It's "Ice Age". The people LOVE "Ice Age".

    2.) Everyone and their mother, father and third uncle went in droves to see it last week. If anything, most of the people going this time are people that wanna watch it again.

    Ice Age is like Shrek. Should have stopped after the first movie but although they made more of it people will still go to see the third one (Shrek 4 is coming out.... wonder what kind of records that one will make :/)

    Well I was late to see ROTF today and waited through three separate parties of maybe two adults and 8 kids to see Ice Age today so I was like "Oh so this is gonna do better than Up? Oh well Up looked like it sucked :( "

    I saw an Ice Age 3 advertisement that played off Transformers, it was the rat thing in a robot outfit with the declaration "Ice Age 3 is a TRANSFORMING Experience!!!" declared next to it.
    Abominable reviews for ROTF, not to mention the more "family friendly" nature of "Ice Age," will undoubtedly bring it to the top spot. ROTF wasn't destined for more than a week there.

    New movies come out all the time? It's not like Ice Age is going to steal viewers from ROTF... much.

    All things considered, ROTF is doing rather well.

    I still can't figure out why people still go to see Ice Age. Both of the first 2 movies were horrible. The only decent parts are with the squirrel and that is about 3 minutes of the actual movie. Of course that is what they base their entire marketing campaign around. It's sad people keep falling for it. I do think, this was just the big opening day for Ice Age, and over the course of the long weekend Transformers will be #1, probably by more than $10 million. It's the 4th of July, people want to see things go boom.
