Why Is Ice Age Rated PG?

Set in the frigid past, Ice Age tells the story of three unlikely critters that come together to solve a common problem. Although there are several scenes of cartoon violence, the animals learn some important lessons along the way.

Violence: A character falls down mountainside, is chased by an avalanche, squeezed between glaciers, and stepped on by other characters. Family leaves character behind. Characters (with the intent to harm) chase others. Character falls over cliff. Characters plan to steal child and eat it. Characters are rained on, hailed on, and struck by lightening. Characters attack humans; woman appears to die as a result. Unintelligent characters fight amongst themselves, fall off cliffs and into a boiling geyser. Character’s tail starts on fire. Character sets up ambush with intent to kill others. Characters stalk and attack animal, fight ensues. Animal is apparently killed by falling icicles (implied, not seen). Another character appears to be killed during fight.

Sexual Content: Characters discuss the idea of mating for life. Character attempts to woo females. Brief comment made about cross-species mating.

Language: Some name calling.

Alcohol / Drug Use: None noted.

Miscellaneous Concerns: Character steps in animal waste and unintentionally kicks it onto another character’s face. Some taunting occurs between characters. Characters deal with a dirty diaper. Character’s tongue becomes frozen to cold object when he licks it.
