Boring and bedraggled.

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.

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

Lacking any meat on its bones, ['Madagascar'] is a cartoon about nothing. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

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.

Intended laugh lines fall embarrassingly flat. Most of the humor was so ridiculous that not even the children in the theater laughed. It's just dull.

The animation is handsome and has a retro cool but, unless they figure out some way to get a story in there, this genre is showing signs of going the way of the musical.
