Easter is, as we’re all well aware, all about the eggs. Whether you favour your yolk-encasing wonders painted, boiled, scrambled or made from chocolate, it’s definitely a time for eggs to shine.

The follow-up to A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Adventures, Sammy’s Great Escape once again unites long-time turtle pals Sammy and Ray – this time in an attempt to find their way home after they’re captured by poachers and shipped off to a fancy aquarium. Aimed at a very young audience, parents and those old enough to hold a decent conversation will struggle to find Sammy’s Great Escape anything but tedious. It’s a pleasant enough film if you’re 6 years old, but that’s literally it.
To celebrate Sammy the turtle’s epic return to the big blue screen in A Turtle’s Tale: Sammy’s Great Escape (in 3D, no less!), we’ve compiled a list of our favourite cinematic members of the order Testudines. We love a bit of turtle action here at BFF, and you know you can always count on us to deliver a comprehensive list of Hollywood reptiles (not terrapins, though, those guys are dicks). Has YOUR favourite chelonian made our Top 10? Read on to find out!
