Ice Age 2: The Meltdown

Continuity mistake: In the first 'Ice Age' Diego isn't afraid of water (in the beginning he chases the woman and the baby through the river before she jumps off the waterfall and never shows any fear) but in this one he suddenly is. It's not like that he is just afraid of swimming because in the second movie he shows fear anytime when he touches water.

Continuity mistake: Near the very end of the movie, we see that Scrat's acrorn holes as he goes up the iceberg wall are in a fairly straight line. However, when the ice begins cracking, the cracks follow the line of holes which are now no longer in a straight line but very jagged. (01:13:05)

Continuity mistake: When the anteater is telling the kids to look at Manny because they'll probably never see another mammoth, you can see Manny's shadow on the ground and it's facing forward, but when the camera switches to facing Manny he's facing sideways. (00:16:05)

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Scrat gets attacked/attacks the piranhas, the acorn gets swallowed by a piranha on the right, after all the fighting, Scrat jumps on a piranha on the lower left, which spits out the acorn. (00:35:20)

Continuity mistake: Right at the beginning of the movie, when Scrat is looking for his nut, there are no teeth marks where he stuck his teeth in to climb. (00:01:35)

Continuity mistake: When Scrat is trying to get the acorn from under the ice, he has 'normal' teeth. He then bites the ice and has longer teeth. (00:18:00)

Continuity mistake: As Sid says "Yeah. She's tons of fun and you're no fun at all", Diego is on the right side of Sid (from Sid's point of view), standing relatively close beside him. Immediately in the next shot, when Sid finishes off by saying: "She completes you", Diego no longer can be seen beside him. (00:34:45)

Continuity mistake: As Manfred and Diego tells Sid to stop singing the vultures' song, Crash and Eddie are standing upon Ellie's tusks. In the following shot, the possums are not there. (00:58:35)

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the film you'll notice that when the blue creature from the ice chunk dives back into the water he has a tail fin. When the creatures attacks Manny and his gang and Manny shoves the creature off it dives back into the water again without a tail fin. Then at the end when Manny is attacked for the last time the blue creature has its tail fin again.

Manny: Don't listen to him, folks. Fast Tony would sell his mother's ashes for a grape.
Fast Tony: Is that an offer?

More quotes from Ice Age 2: The Meltdown

Trivia: The movie contains a spoof of Saving Private Ryan, where Manny is hit by a geyser and temporarily loses his hearing. Incidentally, the German voice for Manny, Arne Elsholtz, also synchronizes Tom Hanks, who also stars in that movie, which creates an inside joke by happenstance in the German version.
