# Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009)

## 4 plot holes

After the dinosaur kids wrecked the playground, Manny tells Sid, "Whatever they are, take them back" and someone says "What are they?" as well. Later, when Mummy Dinosaur appears, Ellie says, "I thought those guys were extinct!" and one minute later Manny says, "She's a dinosaur!" How could they possibly not see that the kids were dinosaurs if they already knew about dinosaurs in the first place?

Suggested correction: They weren't sure about the baby dinosaurs' species because dinosaurs were thought to be extinct. The mother dinosaur eventually showing up, with her more convincing dinosaur properties of being much larger and menacing-looking, convinces them otherwise.

The baby dinosaurs are small enough that Sid can carry them when they are still eggs, yet as soon as they are born they are twice the size they were inside the eggs. Their size shouldn't have changed that much, and even if it did the eggs would have been much too large for Sid to carry.

Suggested correction: Inside the eggs they were bent and arranged much more compactly, the size is totally correct.

In the end of the movie, when Scrat is back on the ice world with the acorn, he mocks Scratte about it. However, the ceiling to the dinosaur world is thousands of feet up, so how could Scrat see and hear Scratte, and vice versa?

In the very end of the movie, when Scrat rides the rocket back to the ice world, it smashes a hole through the ice layer. Two mistakes follow: First, bits and pieces of ice fall away from the rocket. One can conclude that the hole is slightly bigger than the ice slab above, yet they fit perfectly together when the ice falls back down. Second, how can the ice separate from the rocket and fall exactly where it was before?

### Mistakes

When Buck tells about his fight with Rudy, he swings while saying "Back, forth" in front of the others. They are looking the wrong way. He is also swinging on nothing at all.

### Quotes

Sid: I know what it's like to feel abandoned.

### Trivia

This is the only movie in the Ice Age series where Scrat never causes any disaster.

### Questions

Why was Ankylosaurus depicted as an omnivore in this movie? In real life it was a herbivore.

Answer: 1. We don't know it was trying to eat the group. It may have just been trying to scare them away from its territory. 2. This isn't a true ankylosaur. It's something with 65 million additional years of evolution. There is no reason for it to be exactly the same as the Cretacean version.
