Ice Age mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When the squirrel gets stuck between the 2 glaciers he gets stuck at the bottom of them, but then it shows him getting fired out of the top of them. (00:02:49)

Suggested correction: Scrat may have got sucked up to the top.

Or squeezed all the way up and spat out. Either way Scrat is a much cartoonier character than the others and more extreme things happen to him.

Plot hole: In the Ice Tunnel scene, Manny, Sid, and Diego come to a stop on the vertical block of ice. It breaks, and they slide through a 'field' of icicles sticking out of the ground. Their 'sled' is shaved down to nothing, indicating that the icicles are sharp. After going through the same tunnel as the baby, how did the baby make it through that field? (00:46:53)

Suggested correction: A possible reason for the sled slowing down is not due to the ice tunnel but the sheer several tons of weight the sled had on it while it was sliding through the tunnel.

Good point. Without the weight, the icicles would had slowed down the sled instead. And since the baby hardly weighs anything at all, it wouldn't have been able to slide through the field, it would've just collided with the front icicles and stayed there. But it still leads back to question of how the baby got through the field.

Continuity mistake: The scene where Scrat is trampled you see the feet of a camel-like animal and the feet of a mammoth. When the camera pans up, the mammoth is nowhere to be seen. (00:03:23)

Suggested correction: The animals are blocking his body or he's way ahead.

Continuity mistake: Scrat lands on the main road and is not stepped on for 16 seconds. During that time, not one animal passes by. Yet once he is stepped on, the animals pass by at 2 to 4 seconds each, and when the camera pulls back, you can see dozens of animals. Scrat should have been hit as soon as he landed. (00:03:25)

New this week Suggested correction: The herd was probably waiting for the rest to come, or it was a montage.

Continuity mistake: Just after they have finished meeting Diego, Manny says to Sid, "Okay I'll help you return him, but promise me you'll leave me alone after that" and Sid says "Ok ok deal", but as he says "deal" the shot changes and they are further apart then they were before. (00:21:30)

Suggested correction: Since we can't see their feet in the first shot, it is impossible to tell how far apart they are. Their relative size would depend entirely on the position of the camera and type of lens used.

Suggested correction: Manny and Sid (with Roshan) aren't further apart to me.

Other mistake: Even though it is snowing throughout much of the movie, none of the snow seems to stick to any of the characters' fur. Even during the fight scene when they are rolling around in it, they are never covered with white.
