Very much in the tradition of Looney Tunes and Termite Terrace.

A foursome of digitally animated zoo animals escape the inner city confines of Manhattan's Central Park Zoo in search of freedom that's not be all it's cracked up to be in this well-defined children's comedy.

Lame scatalogical gags and worn pop-culture parodies abound, but the CGI animation romp is somewhat redeemed by the scene-stealing appearances of several supporting characters.

Amiably entertaining.

A likeable and loose-limbed addition to the ever-growing CGI family.

Es un ejemplo claro de que la animación todavía tiene mucho que ofrecer, aunque sea de manera sencilla.

What a joy. Just a fun good-hearted film. I giggled nearly the whole time.

Not a bad movie by any stretch of the imagination, but nothing particularly amazing either.

Doesn't really live up to the promise that the idea and voice talent deserve. But it's still spirited, amiable, featherweight summer fun.

The tenor can be shrill, but there's no time to get bored. And on top of that, most of the gags actually work.

Outranks any other animated film in recent memory if only for its dedicated avoidance of any and all lessons imparted or learned.

Unlike more adult-themed animated features like "Beauty and the Beast", "Madgascar" fails to absorb the audience that will be forced to attend with their children.

Better than Shark Tale but still leagues away from the brilliance of the first Shrek.

Brightly coloured but poorly thought out and generally disappointing comedy, despite the odd funny moment.

A film that is very nearly not very good at all.

The painted backgrounds, basic characters, and distinctive locations all give Madagascar the feel of a Caldecott award-winning book.

Madagascar es una oda a la ciudad rascacielo, pero...

... works for what it's shooting for: a generally kid-friendly film that keeps everyone occupied for just under an hour and a half.
