Madagascar

Alex the Lion (Stiller) is the king of the urban jungle as the main attraction at New Yorks Central Park Zoo. He and his best friends Marty the Zebra (Rock), Melman the Giraffe (Schwimmer) and Gloria the Hippo (Pinkett Smith) have lived their entire lives in blissful captivity, complete with lavish meals and their own park views. Not content to leave well enough alone, Marty allows his curiosity to get the better of him and, with the help of some prodigious penguins, makes his escape to explore the world hes been missing, intending to return before morning. In the middle of the night, Alex, Melman and Gloria discover their friend is missing and decide the only course of action is to break out of the zoo and get Marty back home before anyone notices theyre gone.

Even in New York, a lion, giraffe and hippopotamus wandering the streets and riding the subway are bound to attract some attention. Alex, Melman and Gloria track Marty down to Grand Central Station, but before they can catch the train home, they are darted, captured, crated and put on a ship to Africa by well-meaning humans who think they should be freed from the stress of New York life.

When those plotting penguins sabotage the ship, Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria finds themselves washed ashore on the exotic island of Madagascar. Now, these native New Yorkers have to figure out how to survive in the wild and sicover the true meaning of the phrase Its a jungle out there.

My 4yr old Loves it

It was a great buy, my 4 yr old son it hooked on the new dvd. He is completely entertained!

I like to move it

Four zoo animals are shipped back to their homeland by an animal rights group that feels they belong in the wild. When the ship capsizes, the animals find themselves stranded in Madagascar. Having had humans care for them their entire life, they know nothing about survival and must work together with the locals to help them fit in

Personally I think it was a very entertaining movie. The characters are original and the storyline very unique. Its got a very catchy tune and you will find yourself singing it the whole day. Best animation I've seen since Finding Nemo.. Definitely a must for any Disney fan!!

Excellent!!!

Very nice movie. Kids will love it (My daughter is 2 and she loves it). Even adults will enjoy. Must buy if you need a break for a few hours ;)

Highly Inflated Movie

Definately not one of the best animations that I've seen recently. Rather take the kids for a day in the zoo!
