The super-spy wannabes seize the big-screen spotlight for the first time with "Penguins of Madagascar," a funny, frenetic and ultimately forgettable spin-off.

There are enough sight gags and silly jokes in Penguins of Madagascar to make children laugh. But a generation-spanning film, this one isn't.

An animated film should entertain kids, while at the same time, appeal to adults. Frequently, adults are left out of the equation. And, sometimes the action is so frenetic, that only anklebiters get anything out of it. Such is the case with POM.

Children will probably enjoy them and the animation is of a high standard. More wit and less frenetic action might have given the film more appeal to parents.

Kids are easier to please and will probably lap it up. That said, it lacks many of the endearing characters that have made this franchise so likable.
December 31, 2014
The target demographic seems to be children with short-attention spans, those who will be thrilled with the plentiful action sequences and slapstick animal antics, intended to mask a script that emphasizes low-brow mayhem over narrative coherence.

Will probably divert kids with ease, given its manic exertion and pace...[but] we find out the hard way that these waddlers are better in small doses.
December 8, 2014
The four penguins come waddling at you furiously in this spin-off from the popular "Madagascar" franchise.
December 8, 2014
Barely bothering to make sense, this is fast and furious but also flightless.
December 4, 2014
As memorable as the 5384th Cheese Dibble you ate.

Penguins Of Madagascar itself seems like a plot to train kids to like the blockbusters of tomorrow, priming them through sensory overload.
November 27, 2014
Following the absurd humour and Red Bull energy of series peak Europe's Most Wanted, Penguins Of Madagascar is just a deflated return to the franchise's blah beginnings.
November 26, 2014
The frenzied plotting is the equivalent of a sugar rush that wears off quickly.
November 26, 2014
Penguins of Madagascar aims primarily for the kiddies, racing from one frenetic action sequence to another like some haywire Walter Lantz cartoon.
November 26, 2014
Since the penguins never had to carry a Madagascar movie, it was easier for them to steal one. Now they have their own movie, and who steals it? No one, as it turns out.
November 26, 2014
While "Madagascar"'s young faithful will likely get the most out of this flick, even they are likely to find they prefer these penguins in smaller doses.
November 26, 2014
It may be a case of damning with faint praise to say that Penguins of Madagascar never really gets a chance to bore, since it never slows down.
November 25, 2014
Plays like a sampler of Dreamworks Animation's worst creative impulses: sugar-rush pacing, pandering meta-gags, and a slick, flavorless animation style.
November 25, 2014
Passable entertainment if you're 7. Otherwise, frenzied and aimless.
November 25, 2014
wears its focus grouped garishness like a point of pride
