Mediocre, phoned-in semi-entertainment.

It'll be fun for the smaller kids, but there's not much crossover appeal for their parents.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4

Eventually, it had to happen: a computer-animated dud.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
May 26, 2005
Another triumph of animation technique over anything that could reasonably be called a story.
May 26, 2005
Some charming performances and saucy humor cannot save this movie from its surprising insensitivity.

Kinda funny. Kinda annoying. Pretty. In love with its own mediocrity.

This tepid summer animated offering limps along like an aged, mangy lion with bunions.

Technically brilliant - but pathetically ignorant.

Sometimes the line between family fun and cheeky humor gets blurred too far.

It paints itself into a very bizarre corner because at first, they are all friends and then all of a sudden they revert to being more like real animals. How do you do that and make it funny? Well, you don't.

Modestly improving upon the wretched DreamWorks animation template, Madagascar still fails to approximate Pixar's trademark mix of hilarity and poignancy.

Too kiddie-oriented to keep the parents coming back like they have for the likes of the vastly superior Shrek, Nemo and Incredibles films.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

It hopes that if it throws enough pop-cultural references at us, we won't notice how frantically it's trying to figure out what to do.

The movie has plenty of ingenuity. What it lacks -- completely -- is inspiration.

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

Madagascar is a film that, visually, is quite colorful and lively, but what's underneath is bland, uninventive, and downright dull.

If Shark Tale was Shrek Light, then Madagascar is Shrek Dry.

Boring and bedraggled.
May 27, 2005
DreamWorks set the bar awfully low last fall with Shark Tale, but like a limbo champion it slips lower still with Madagascar.

For all of its easy jokes about poop and flatulence, the one stinking here is the movie itself.
