# Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs (2009)

## 4 plot holes - chronological order

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

In the carnivorous plant scene, Manny grabs the fruit (the bait), which is sitting in the middle of the plant. In the next few shots, the bait disappears and then is replaced with a bulb that housed the red and blue "wires".

### 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

In Buck's first theory scene, when Sid attacks Mummy dinosaur with the broccoli, what is all that green stuff that takes over the picture? Has the dinosaur turned into the broccoli? If so, why did Manny say " where's the dinosaur" if the dinosaur became the broccoli?

THE GAMER NEXT DOOR

Answer: The "green stuff" covering the view of the camera are fragments of the broccoli that were released due to the broccoli being used for hitting, likely representing the dinosaur's transition development of becoming a vegetable. The dinosaur was claimed to have become a vegetable, not that broccoli itself. The broccoli was only used, by Sid, as self-defence, turning the dinosaur into another vegetable.
