This has got to be one of the funniest animated movies I’ve seen since Shrek. The story starts with a plot by the Penguins to escape the New York Zoo and make a break for Antarctica. Marty the Zebra (voice by Chris Rock) decides that ‘the wild’ sounds like a place he wants to be so he makes a break from the zoo one night. His best friends, Alex the Lion, Gloria the Hippo and hypochondriac Melman the Giraffe find him gone and break out of the zoo to find Marty and bring him back to the pampered life of New York Zoo. Things don’t go according to plan and before they know it the four friends are on a ship destined for Kenya. They don’t quite make Kenya either!
Chris Rock is fantastic as Marty and David Schwimmer does a brilliant portrayal as whining hypochondriac Melman but the winners in this film for me have to be the penguins.
This movie is laughs all the way and had both myself and my husband in stitches. If you enjoyed Shrek then you’ll love Madagascar too.

First of all, let's laugh at the adults moaning about this film being 'terrible' or 'shallow'. Apart from being entirely wrong, they also seem to have forgotten that this ones for the kids!
There are really two points of view that matter here; the kid that watches the movie repeatedly and the adult that has to put up with it! On the first account my three year old son has been watching this for at least a year and still loves it. Multiple viewings don't seem to have tarnished it much at all and the opening three minutes still make him giggle with delight.
For me, as the suffering adult, I'd still give it a high rating. The animation is stylish, the casting perfect and the script funny. As has been mentioned in other reviews, the penguins are absolutely classic! I also loved the American Beauty and Planet Of the Apes references. OK, I admit it. I'm a big kid and as such I also give it the thumbs up!
Parents, get this!

I disagree with the other reviewers - there's plenty here to make adults laugh... lots of the jokes are aimed at the grown-up audience rather than the kids. It probably depends on your expectations - I wanted an hour and a half of entertainment at the end of a long week at work and Madagascar provided it. I wasn't after a cinematic masterpiece and no, it wasn't quite as funny as Shrek, but it wasn't that far off.

I really can't wait for the release of this DVD. This film is amazing. The scenery is gorgeous, the characters are fabulous but the storyline at first makes you think 'what is this film gonna be like.' Don't be fooled by the story. It works really well and believe me you will be laughing right through. Every character has it's own unique way about them that is fuuny but you'll definately be laughing at the penguins. This film is at the top with Shrek and Wallace and Gromit:The Curse of the were Rabbit. Believe me, if you liked previous Dreamworks films (Shrek 2, Shark Tale, Wallace and Gromit e.t.c) you'll love this. Take my word for it and if you're still not convinced, just check out what other Amazon customers have had to say. Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant. Definately one to have in your DVD collection. Finally, another animated film for all ages!!!

Excellent family film. Not for those who seek deep spiritual meanings from their movies. This is a film not to think too deeply about but enjoy. The animation is different, but fantastic, and the story line, is easy to follow and fun.

Dreamworks Animation just can't deliver on the promise of the Shrek films. They're lacklustre attempts seem to involve getting a star cast and peppering the movie with in-jokes and pop culture references.
What they seem to forget is a plotline, and decent humour. However, Madagascar is a slightly better attempt than previous efforts, thanks to a quirky cast of characters.
The plotline sees the animals leaving Central Park zoo for the Wild, where they meet a bunch of party animals, have a fight with some carnivores, and, erm, that's about it.
There are some quite funny sight gags and slapstick, but most of the one-liners (apart from "the toilets even have free mints!") are bland, and the pop-culture references just boring. Light relief, though, is had by the excellent, scheming penguins, as they try to go to the North Pole - and the pay-off of this sub-plot is the best gag in the movie.
The animation favours stylised cartoon, rather than Pixar-level of detail, so while colourful and quirky, looks a little flash and no substance. A bit like the characters. The promising beginning of actual character arcs never quite fulfilled.
But this is a cartoon? Am I being too harsh? Well, who said cartoons are just for kids - these days, adults should expect to get something out of them too. Just don't expect it from this film. Kids, will love it though, unfortunately!

A fun film that isn't going to scare any children, so the ideal DVD for the whole family to watch at Christmas. I watched it with my girlfriend and her 11 year old boy, an he thought it was fantastic, and sat very quietly right through it and was enthralled by the lemurs.
The plot is slightly weak, but the animation doesn't sink into 'padding', so it still engages one's attention throughout.
As all reviewers have pointed out, it is the penquins that steal the show. They are simply fantastic. If you are lucky, like me, you will find a copy of the DVD that also has the Penguins' Christmas Caper on it which was recently showed as a short film in cinemas prior to the feature film (I bought my DVD from Wal Mart while in the US last weekend).
The graphics on this film are very well executed (particularly the sheen on the penquins' feathers!).
Do buy this DVD, the kids will love it.
