This animated story stars a dinosaur who, after being
snatched from his nest, finds himself among a new species: mammals. With the voices of
Julianna Margulies, D.B. Sweeney, Joan Plowright, Ossie Davis, Max Casella, Alfre Woodard,
Samuel E. Wright, Peter Siragusa and Della Reese. [1:22]
SEX/NUDITY 1 -
There's some talk of smooching. A lemur is shown
practicing "pick-up" lines. A mating ritual for lemurs with an airborne dance on
vines ends with lemurs watching the sunset from the top of a huge tree, paired as couples.
A lemur calls himself the "love monkey."
- A mother dinosaur is shown protecting her eggs from
other dinosaurs by growling and making threatening gestures. A large carnivorous dinosaur
with lots of sharp teeth pounces out of a thicket and chases a herbivorous dinosaur herd,
crushing a nest of eggs along the way. A herbivorous dinosaur is caught and eaten (shown
briefly at a distance). There are a few more confrontations between carnivorous and
herbivorous dinosaurs: Two carnivorous dinosaurs chase and catch a herbivore. We see him,
at a distance, dangling from a carnivore's mouth. Another dinosaur is injured in the
same attack. A carnivorous dinosaur grabs a dinosaur by the tail but another dinosaur
interferes. A pack of carnivorous dinosaurs chase and snap at the lemurs and a herbivorous
dinosaur. An egg falls into a body of water and is taken into a fish's mouth and then
spat out. The egg is nearly fed to babies in a nest when there is a struggle with other
flying dinosaurs. Eventually the egg falls a great distance and lands without cracking. A
lemur holds a baby dinosaur over a cliff after discussing having to destroy it. A dinosaur
chases some lemurs and catches one in its mouth (it turns out it was just a game). A comet
lands in the sea which causes a large, noisy shock wave and explosions of flaming rocks.
Lemurs and dinosaurs are almost killed when they are forced to jump from a cliff to avoid
being singed. Several huge dinosaurs are knocked down a few times. We see a dead dinosaur;
carnivorous dinosaurs hover over the body. We see the bones after they've been picked
clean. Another dead dinosaur is eaten by a carnivorous dinosaur, and we see two dinosaurs
lying dead, one after falling off a cliff and one after a battle. Dinosaurs are shown
exhausted from marching without water. Two dinosaurs fight with kicking, punching, shoving
and clawing and end up with wounds. Some boulders fall and crush two dinosaurs. A
carnivorous dinosaur threatens a dinosaur herd; there's lots of hollering which
causes the carnivore to retreat. A dinosaur is chased by a carnivorous dinosaur up a sheer
wall of rocks; there's a fight and two other dinosaurs join in. A baby dinosaur
urinates on a lemur.
PROFANITY 1 - A dinosaur calls another a "jerkasaurus." [profanity glossary]
DISCUSSION TOPICS -
Survival of the fittest, teamwork, family, evolution and
extinction, carnivorous (flesh-eating) vs. herbivorous (plant-eating) animals.
MESSAGE - The smallest thing can cause the biggest changes. The best
way to succeed is to work together.
