Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs

Corrected entry: Lava solidifies when it touches air, so lava falls wouldn't be red and yellow; it would be brown and black, with traces of red.


Correction: Lava does not instantaneously solidify when it touches air; I've seen many videos of lava flows where the entire flow is glowing bright orange.

Corrected entry: Scrat and Scratte were riding the rocket up to the ice world. They both grab the acorn, Scrat yanks it out of the rock, Scratte falls away, but shouldn't Scrat fall, too?


Correction: No, because he's still sat atop the rock(et), where as Scratette fell off because she lost grip of the acorn, Scrat never did.


Corrected entry: In the scene right before the carnivorous plant scene, Ellie says, "Hold on". The camera then switches to Manny, and you can see Crash, Eddie, and Diego walking in the background. However, if you look to the right of Diego, you can also see Buck, even though he hadn't joined the group yet. He then disappears from them until the time he's supposed to appear. Perhaps maybe he was originally going to join the herd in his first appearance?

Correction: Buck was shadowing the group the entire time they were in the dinosaurs' land, as he points out later on.

Corrected entry: In the first Ice Age, the mammoth, sloth, and tiger returned a human child to its parents. But in this movie, there were dinosaurs when dinosaurs were extinct, before Eskimos.


Correction: The whole point was that the dinosaurs were in another, parallel existence. It requires a stretch of the imagination, much like talking animals, but it's not a plot hole.

Other mistake: 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.

Question: 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?


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.
