Here is additional information on sex, violence and profanity in Ice Age 2: The Meltdown...

Cartoon violence is a recurring element in this film. While attempting to get his hands on an acorn, a prehistoric squirrel gets his tongue stuck on a glacier, falls from a cliff, and is stuck underwater. Amongst other mishaps, piranhas and an angry vulture also attack him. Manny and his companions face perilous situations when the dam threatens to break and flood the valley. On their journey to higher ground they are attacked by sea creatures, surrounded by hungry vultures, hit with rocks and tree trunks, and threatened by exploding geysers. When Manny meets Ellie, their conversation includes some mild sexual innuendo. The script also contains some brief language concerns and scenes of bathroom humor.

Details on home video releases of Ice Age 2: The Meltdown...

If your kids are having a Meltdown waiting for a chance to see Ice Age 2 again, then they are sure to give this DVD release a warm reception. But viewing the film is just the tip of the iceberg because there are a ton of other extra features as well. These include a commentary by director Carlos Saldanha, producer Lori Forte and the production team, a behind-the-scenes look at the animation process, an introduction to new characters and the marketing of the movie. There are also some bonus shorts (No Time for Nuts, Crash & Eddie Stunts, and Lost Historical Films on the Ice Age Period), a featurette (Silly Sid & John Leguizamoa), outtakes (Crash and Eddie Blooper), trailers and some cross-promotional trailers. Gamers will find some entertainment and web links for them too, and the party crowd can dance to the sloth sing-along. Audio tracks are available in Dolby Digital 5.1 (English) and Dolby Digital Surround (French and Spanish), with subtitles in English and Spanish.

These new materials include: Meet The Modeler (learn how to create a model of Sid’s head), Scrat: From Head To Toe (a drawing tutorial), two featurettes (Breaking Story and News Report), Hot Is Cold / Cold Is Hot (a scavenger hunt and environmental trivia game), Migration Adventure and Whack-A-Possum.

Both versions offer audio tracks in 5.1 Dolby Surround (English) and Dolby Surround (Spanish and French), with subtitle in English and Spanish.
