The content of this page was created directly by users and has not been screened or verified by IMDb staff.
Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & 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."

Violence & Gore

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" (1 use used to describe a burro, and 2 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, "damn".

None. Sid gets singed by some lava and ends up cooling-off inside a statue. This causes some smoke to come out of the statue's nostrils. That's as close as the movie comes to any of the above!

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.
