Madagascar

Synopsis:

The latest animated adventure from DreamWorks (Shrek, Shark Tale) follows a group of zoo animals returned to the wild. A lion, a zebra, a giraffe and a hippo are best friends who have spent their entire lives in New York's Central Park Zoo. However, a group of animal activists decide to return them to the jungle where they belong. The civilized New Yorkers find themselves on the island of Madagascar off the coast of Africa where they must fend for themselves.

What the critics are saying:

"Striking a perfect balance between wit, slapstick and self-awareness, Madagascar is as fluffy as a meringue and twice as tasty."
- Paul Arendt, BBCi Film

"It's a good-humored, pleasant confection that has all kinds of relaxed fun bringing computer-animated savvy to the old-fashioned world of Looney Tunes cartoons."
- Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times

"...funny, especially at the beginning, and good-looking in a retro cartoon way, but in a world where the stakes have been raised by Finding Nemo, Shrek and The Incredibles, it's a throwback to a more conventional kind of animated entertainment. It'll be fun for the smaller kids, but there's not much crossover appeal for their parents."
- Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times


A new adventure from the makers of Shrek - it's pretty, fluffy and lots of fun.

Madagascar Entertaining and funny - not as good as Shark Tale or Finding Nemo -but worth watching -the kids loved it.

Madagascar I think that it was as good as Shrek. I liked the way that the Melman and friends stuck together no matter how bad the situation became. Yes, most definately!

Madagascar Great for small kids, but not very entertaining for the parents.

Madagascar It was ok. Children will enjoy the Lemur Monkey's, Shrek was better, funner, and more adult humour Madagascar
