Boring and bedraggled.

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.

The character design is ugly; the main characters are often annoying; the humor is generally weak; and the computer-generated animation is often soulless.
November 8, 2008
A shallow attempt at filmmaking and humor.

September 22, 2008 engaging little diversion that maintains its charm with repeat viewing.

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 promising premise, a top voice cast and a studio with an impressive track record sets up expectations that Madagascar just can't fulfill.

Film Journal International
February 26, 2007
A likeable and loose-limbed addition to the ever-growing CGI family.

Too kiddie-oriented to keep the parents coming back like they have for the likes of the vastly superior Shrek, Nemo and Incredibles films.

I wanted a moral to the story. In Finding Nemo: Don't let fear rule your life. Shrek: True beauty is on the inside. Madagascar: Don't eat your friends?

If we're not suffering poo-flinging or butt-biting, we get the theme songs from Chariots of Fire and Hawaii Five-O.

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.

It should mostly catch the attention of the younger set, but there are some gags left over for their parents (lots of slick cultural references and poo yuks).

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.
