Manny the woolly mammoth, Sid the sloth, Diego the saber-toothed tiger, and the hapless prehistoric squirrel/rat known as Scrat are still together and enjoying the perks of their now melting world. Manny may be ready to start a family, but nobody has seen another mammoth for a long time; Manny thinks he may be the last one. That is, until he miraculously finds Ellie, the only female mammoth left in the world. Their only problems: They can't stand each other--and Ellie somehow thinks she's a possum! Ellie comes with some excess baggage in the form of her two possum "brothers"-- Crash and Eddie, a couple of daredevil pranksters and cocky, loud-mouthed troublemakers. Manny, Sid and Diego quickly learn that the warming climate has one major drawback: A huge glacial dam holding off oceans of water is about to break, threatening the entire valley. The only chance of survival lies at the other end of the valley. So our three heroes, along with Ellie, Crash and Eddie, form the most unlikely...
|nudity||When Manny implies that he and Ellie can save their species (by mating -- although those words are not used), she complains that she's a mammoth for five minutes (having just accepted that) and "You're hitting on me." He then says it's their responsibility, prompting her to reply, "You're not saving the species tonight or any night." Another character then calls Manny a "pervert." Manny describes that Ellie is considered attractive to the mammoth species because of the size of her butt.|
|violence||We see Scrat trying to scale a glacier but ends up hanging from his tongue where the tip is frozen to the ice. After freeing himself from that, his body then fills up with a water leak, prompting him to fall a long distance where he crashes through some ice, bumps his head on more and then lands hard on some ice. Played for comical effect. There are a few other minor scrapes, including a short battle between Manny and some sea monsters, but none of it is very aggressive or gory.|
|profanity||3 uses of "ass" (2 use used to describe a burro, and 1 uses used appropriately to describe a burro's 'donkey' mother). 2 uses of "crap". At one point, a possum calls Manny a "pervert". Single use of the word, "dam", by a beaver.|
|frightening||Death is a major theme in the film. Encroaching water is the theme throughout, since the movie is set in a large valley surrounded by a high dam of melting ice. The water contains what, a quick web search suggests, look like a Kronosaurus, a Liopleurodon and a whole load of Megapiranhas - all toothy, and hungry. There are a few scenes where the main characters are threatened by these underwater monsters. Two notable deaths occur. The first is quite subtle, where a swimming turtle disappears and his empty shell resurfaces. The second is Scrat who, after a long fall into some gushing water, finds himself in Nut Heaven, only then to be revived by Sid.
