Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted Reviews

A sugar high that inevitably fades with time.

This overlong Saturday morning cartoon boasts plenty animals but little magic.

Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted is no better or worse than the earlier films. It's been forged from the same mould and features the same brand of humour.

Better than its predecessor but worse than most other things.

Madagscar 3 is less interested in plucking the last bit of meat off the series's bones than with simply picking the lowest-hanging fruit.

It has value only as a way to engage a very young viewer until his or her attention span expires.

"Madagascar 3" is all about exuberant motion, cute characters and gorgeous colors. It aims for the eyes, not the heart.

The screenplay, by Eric Darnell and Noah Baumbach, churns out the snappy witticisms with admirable creative gusto, but it whizzes along at such a frenetic pace that you'll probably miss half of them.

If you want to see a family film that tries to make kids laugh by throwing lots of loud scenes with obnoxious characters doing annoying things and features the latest crappy pop songs, then MADAGASCAR 3 is for you.

Despite a script co-written by Noah Baumbach, "Madagascar 3" can't upgrade its own shtick, becoming a craven example of a fast-buck, no-fun family film.

Yes, it's a cartoon, but it's conspicuously unmodulated, with the volume set on high and the pacing all but pushed to fast-forward.

... this one was rotten in 2005 and 2008, and by now it's really beginning to stink.

Is there any reason to seek it out if you don't have kids to bring along or a desire to see every animated movie ever made? Not really.

Set at a frenzied pace meant to connote fun, it mostly feels like a frenetic spectacle.

[W]e can only hope that this series of mediocrities, which has already spanned three continents, spares us the other four.

Instead of developing the characters or situations for comedy gold, the filmmakers instead just crank up the chaos. So while some scenes are both funny and visually impressive, this second sequel is simply too inane.

What might be barely tolerable in a seven-minute short gave me the biggest headache since "Transformers: Dark of the Moon.''

If you typically check the ingredients on the stuff you feed your kids, here is what you'll find in "Madagascar 3": jokes, Katy Perry music and less than 2 percent of character development and emotional warmth.

The movie zooms along at a clip so quick, it sometimes overwhelms.

Color, frantic action, cute animals and a half-hatched theme about rekindling passion don't hit the target.
