DBIM: Ice Age

I really don't get Ice Age.  From the first trailer with the irritating squirrel/acorn joke, it turned me off.  Then, of course, they had to do this:
Severity: Infinite/Maximum/Whatever the Top Is
Genre: Movie
Date: 2002
Description: The main characters, attempting to secure fruit for the child they are protecting, run into a flock of Dodos (who think the fruit is one of their eggs). In the ensuing chaos, many birds are killed in gruesome ways.
Mitigating Factors: None.
Aggravating Factors: After several birds fall off a cliff, one Dodo remarks, "There go our last fertile females" Suggesting that, instead of being eradicated by humans, the Dodo became extinct because they were just too stupid to live.  Charming.
