Awesome / Ice Age 2: The Meltdown

Go To

  • Scrat saves the day in this movie. Yes, Scrat.
    • Him beating up an entire school of piranhas as well.
  • Sid's tribal-dance number with the pygmy sloths.
  • "Food, Glorious Food" sung by the Vultures.
  • The dam breaking is incredible to see, with a massive tsunami of water destroying the thin wall of ice that finally gives out, and then surging across the valley at frightening speed.
  • Diego finally overcoming his fear of water to save Sid.
    • And afterwards, when Diego reminds Sid that most animals can swim even as infants (something Sid taught him earlier), Sid responds, "Yeah, but not tigers. I left that part out." Meaning that Sid of all people pulled off a hell of a Stealth Mentor role, and that Diego managed to figure out swimming despite it not being instinctive for him.

  • Diego orchestrating the others to cooperate when they're stuck on some precarious rocks stacked on top of one another.
  • A veritable army of mammoths arriving at the end, after an entire film of Manny (and later Ellie) believing themselves to be the last ones, accompanied by a magnificent soundtrack.
    • What's more awesome is Manny choosing his friends over the mammoths.
