This is a children's' movie. I think people keep forgetting that when they review it. Kids would LOVE this movie. I am an adult and I went with my adult sister and we were just howling with laughter the whole time. There were a few science fiction movie jokes in there that almost killed me dead laughing. I think kids would love the animals. They were cute but not cutesey. Ben Stiller's voice was perfect for the silly lion character. Chris Rock didn't say anything too shocking. The animated scenery was beautiful. The characters were all good. It was jam packed full of humor and <more>
grooviness. A lot of the imagery reminded me of groovy retro stuff. I'm partial to groovy retro stuff. I think you should make up your own mind whether to see it or not instead of reading reviews. Wink wink nudge nudge. Cheers
I just attended a press screening in Los Angeles. This movie is a "reel" hoot. It was simply hilarious. The spoofs, take-offs, and references to other movies, music and characters come fast and furious - so you'll probably need to see it several times to catch all of them shh, no talking in the theater . The plot - a bunch of New York City zoo animals end up back in the wild with all their madcap adventures along the way. Excellent animation, voices, music and jokes. The spoiler - it was over in 85 minutes and I wanted more - I was spoiled. I can't wait for Madagascar 2! <more>
And, please stay seated until the end of the credits, the complete end - you will be treated all during the credits with a special treat at the very end.
Lived Up To Good Reputation - Funny, Colorful (by ccthemovieman-1)
Here's another recently-made animated film that has two outstanding characteristics which make it a winner: 1 - consistently funny humor that adults can enjoy, and 2 - beautiful, bold colors.When a movie is both fun to hear and to watch, I have very few complaints. This movie provides a lot of enjoyment with more jokes perhaps that adults would laugh at than the kids. I can't say that for sure, since I watched it by myself....but I sure got my share of laughs This is a tale of four zoo animals that wind up in the wilds. To be more precise, they go from the big zoo in New York City to <more>
the wilds of Madagascar, an island near Africa. Wherever these "guys" are - the lion, zebra, hippo and giraffe - they are entertaining. Ben Stiller and Chris Rock, voicing the lion "Alex" and zebra "Marty" , respectively, are the two main characters. Jada Pinkett Smith's hippo "Gloria" and and David Schwimmer's hypochondriac giraffe "Melman" provide solid support. The main thing is that all the characters, including supporting ones, are likable and funny in their own way. Every character is quite different. The story movies exceptionally fast so the hour-and-a-half is easy to watch.Maybe the best thing I can say is that I heard a lot of good things about this before watching it, and it lived up to its hype. That's not easy to do.
The mood you're in when you see a movie has a big impact on how much you enjoy it. I saw this in a cinema packed with young families and it went down well. I laughed a lot, so did my kids, and so did the cinema. I explained to my daughter that pansy meant softy, so I even felt useful.Having young children means I have sat through quite a lot of this genre, and the use of computers in animation makes things a little over-refined. I seem to be the only person who finds Pixar movies too polished, faultless, and stale. This film can be abrupt and patchy, but in my opinion that makes it more <more>
spontaneous.The movie looks great, the penguins are funny, the king is funny, and the pace and energy are good. About 90 minutes is also the correct length. The plot may be thin but the survival concepts that pepper the movie are good intellectual fodder for children.
From the makers of shark tale and Shrek films, we have another laugh riot in MADAGASCAR. Well developed characters, a huge dose of scathing wit and infectious fun. This tale is about a bunch of animals at the central park zoo in new york who are suddenly hit by 'freedom fever' spread by the crazy penguins. Alex the lion voice of Ben Stiller and zebra named Marty voice of Chris Rock are the best of friends who are also the star attractions at the zoo. Alex loves to impress the crowds with his antics every day and for that, he is rewarded with chunks of steaks, his favorite food. <more>
At night, he hangs out with Marty, Gloria the hippo Jada Pinkett Smith and Melman the hypochondriac giraffe David Schimmer . The four friends lead a relatively carefree life as celebrities, having no idea what life is like outside the zoo or in the wild. Things change when Marty turns 10 and encounters a group militant penguins trying to dig their way out to the Antartica. This sets Marty pondering about his lot in life....like, how he would have fared in the wild, and whether he is white with black stripes or black with white stripes. These thoughts egg him so much that he breaks out and heads for Grand Central Station where he plans to go to Connecticut--the only area with wide spaces that he knows of ! His worried pals takes off after him and after being caught and put in a ship, they end up........you guess it : MADAGASCAR !!It is here that the tone of the movie gets even wilder and wackier. The four 'zoosters' find themselves in the land of the lemurs who love techno dancing and partying---sounds familiar eh?... The lemurs biggest problem is that the coyote like 'fossas' would gate-crash their party and threaten their lives.Now, there is a new king in this jungle--and Alex is invited to be their protector. However, as the new 'predator', Alex starts seeing his friends as potential food....All in a good animation movie. It is fresh and inventive and the the graphics well detailed. Directors Eric DArnell and TOm Mcgrath keep the going as lighthearted as possible without being preachy. It is also about friendship triumphing over rudimentary instincts---and any child would understand easily. All of the voice cast intelligently bringing these characters alive. Check this one out guys !!!
It was a hilarious movie. I laughed the whole time. I would especially recommend it to families with young children, but would be a good movie for anyone with a good sense of humor. Ignore the bad reviews, this is a truly good movie. I am a movie lover because I am an actress and I can tell the difference between a good movie and a bad one. it was very funny and my family just discussed it at breakfast and we still laughed. We are even considering to go see it again today. It was that good! I hope you will really think about this review and consider seeing Madagascar. If you don't see <more>
Madagascar then I hope you enjoy whichever show you do see.Madison Hall
It's no "Shrek" or "Finding Nemo" but it's worth the $8.25 (by originalcrystaltm)
I could not disagree with those who are calling this movie boring more. Is it a perfect movie? No. But it is fun, fast-paced, and highly entertaining. A theater full of children laughed almost non-stop, and even my husband who honestly wanted to see the latest "Star Wars" movie grudgingly admitted it was pretty good.The plot is basic: four animals must try to survive in the wild, and along the way learn more about themselves. But the visuals are hilarious, the music is fun, and the interludes with the psychotic penguins? Priceless.The only part of this movie I disliked was the <more>
casting of David Schwimmer. Although he did a fine job, the entire time I felt distracted by his voice- I was reminded too much of his Ross character from "Friends." So, don't go expecting an Oscar-worthy film, or even the next "Shrek." Instead, go to enjoy a piece of indulgent yet funny animation that will keep you laughing.
Lots of fun - I saw it with the grandkids and a theater full of families. a great time was had by all. technically speaking, one might say that the story was 'uneven' in places can you say *that* about animated films? -: -- I mention this because there has been some needlessly negative feedback here at IMDb. On the whole, though, the presentation is quick-paced, bright, happy, and delightful to the eyes and ears. There are also some unique, quirky scenes i.e. animals nonchalantly getting on a subway? - I love to see stuff I haven't seen before. that's not easy to do, you <more>
know - by all accounts, "everything has been done on film already.." - if you catch my drift . so, give credit when due! enjoy! -:
I took my 8 yr old daughter and a friend of hers to see the movie last weekend. We had a blast. The humor is one of Dreamworks best. It was sutle enough on some of the jokes that the younger kids did not catch on but you could hear the adults chuckling.My personal favorite was Melmen. He was very funny and I think that everyone can relate to knowing someone like that. Sick all the time I would not recommend kids under the age of 6 to see it though. Their where quite a few little ones in the theater and all you heard was "what are they doing now? Why are people laughing?" etc.A lot <more>
of fun and a lot of laughs. We will definitely own this when it comes out on DVD.
