This movie is bright and busy with plenty of bells and whistles, but quickly wanes, despite its best effort.

A sugar high that inevitably fades with time.

The first-class 3D animation is better than the cliche-ridden script.
October 19, 2012
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.

This typically frenetic but wearying series entry lacks the Looney Tunes efficiency of its predecessors.

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.
June 15, 2012
Color, frantic action, cute animals and a half-hatched theme about rekindling passion don't hit the target.

The movie is fast-moving enough to make you forget that it doesn't make a lick of sense.

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

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

Fans of the original might react with more of an indifferent shrug to their latest travelogue.

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.
June 8, 2012
The clever lines and themes of friendship and finding home are almost completely overwhelmed here by the breathless pace and sensory overload...
June 8, 2012
What might be barely tolerable in a seven-minute short gave me the biggest headache since "Transformers: Dark of the Moon.''

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.
June 7, 2012
Set at a frenzied pace meant to connote fun, it mostly feels like a frenetic spectacle.
June 7, 2012
"Madagascar 3" is all about exuberant motion, cute characters and gorgeous colors. It aims for the eyes, not the heart.
June 7, 2012
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.
