Pure fun, this family fare.

The four leads are all very good in their respective roles, especially Stiller and Rock, but it is the supporting characters that really make Madagascar a cut above most family fare.

The sequel to the 2005 Madagascar is as spunky, witty and funny. However, what's a let-down perhaps is the story, which takes the same course as The Lion King, with a detour towards Shrek thrown in.

The script, by Tropic Thunder co-writer and Mike Judge collaborator Etan Cohen, is rather rote in terms of story, but the jokes are pretty good.

Kids will love the wisecracking penguins, industrious monkeys and feisty, survivalist grandma, who packs quite a wallop with her handbag.

Doesn't mess with a good thing. That means many prankish penguins, loony lemurs and that "move it, move it" song, all over again.

In a post WALL-E world, it's hard not to be slightly underwhelmed by Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa.
February 22, 2009
I am no great fan of sequels, and am especially suspicious of movies that try to cross-over between adult and child audiences. But this one won me over early on.

Energetic, fast-paced, and pumped full of zany humor...sure to entertain the younguns and be fairly painless for their guardians. [Blu-ray]

There's amusement in this jungle jumble but "Happy Feet" left me happier.
February 4, 2009
The characters seem better developed this time and the story lines are stronger.

...relies more heavily than ever on friendship, love, and family relationships. Who can complain about that?
December 26, 2008
Punches its key themes of friendship, togetherness and family amid a hyperactive swirl of jokes, musical numbers and physical gags.
December 19, 2008
The pop culture references, the dance numbers and the in-jokes we enjoyed in the first film are here for parents and kids alike, as is the irreverent humour.
December 19, 2008
The animation is as breathtakingly beautiful as before and if anything, the sequel is funnier and sharper than the original thanks to a witty screenplay.
December 17, 2008
Among the Looney Tuniest of recent computer-animated features -- the anatomy-distorting slapstick, wacky wordplay and surreal throwaway gags are nonstop.
December 12, 2008
It's a very handsome production, and a pretty funny one, too, which will keep audiences of all ages -- except perhaps the most cynical -- thoroughly entertained.
December 12, 2008
Whatever else I felt about the movie, this is good animation. The colours are extraordinary, the backgrounds stunning.

[Sua] irreverência só (surge) realmente quando os personagens secundários seqüestram a história.
