Trivia

According to an interview with Jay Leno on July 12th 2012, Denis Leary's character Diego originally died near the end of the film, which caused the test audience of children to burst into tears, so it was re-done. See more »

Goofs

When the mother pushes the baby towards Manny, the baby is on a sloping rock and Manny pulls it towards him with his trunk. The next moment the baby is on the flat ground beyond the sloping rock. For that to happen, Manny should have either pulled the baby right off the edge of the slope to the ground with a thud or lifted and gently lowered it. See more »

Charming
19 March 2002 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie with two grown children. Although it was not as clever as Shrek, I thought it was rather good. In a movie theatre surrounded by children who were on spring break, there was not a sound so I know the children all liked it. There parents also seemed engaged. The death and apparent death of characters brought about the appropriate gasps and comments. Hopefully people realize this movie was made for kids. As such, it was successful although I liked it too. Personally I liked the Scrat!!
