Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa Just took the kids to see this movie on Sunday, and I must say that I enjoyed it more than they did J Much like many cartoons/kids movies being released as of late, the majority of the sight gags, and one-liners are not now, nor are they expectedt o be, aimed at kids. The kidlets will appreciate the music, and the flashy colours, but for the real humour in this movie (and it’s predecessors), you have to catch the irony/call outs and you can’t do that unless you actually ‘get’ the historical references. In either case, I did NOT find it funnier than the first movie, but I did find it AS funny. Both movies got me several good laughs and at least one occasion of me spewing my soft-drink (coke) at MACH4 towards the movie screen. The sound is great; the jokes are sublime etc etc… What I can’t understand is why their primary characters are often ignored when I ask people about their fav. characters. I personally am mad about the Penguins (Skipper, Kowalski, Rico and Private. I’m also a fan of Prince Julian and the Two British Monkeys. If you’re like me, you’ll find that they all have a larger role in this movie…kudos. I recommend the movie to all people with kids…and especially those of us who are still young at heart.
