Madagascar DVD Review
What happens when you take zoo animals out of the city and let them loose in a wild jungle? Find out with Kidzworld's review of Madagascar!
Madagascar - The Mane Attraction
Alex the lion (Ben Stiller) is the king of the urban jungle and star of the Central Park Zoo. He lives a pampered life - complete with seasoned steaks - along with his zoomates, Marty the zebra (Chris Rock), Gloria the hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith) and Melman the hypochondriac giraffe (David Schwimmer). The animals are blissfully content in captivity because they have zoo keepers waiting on them hand and foot with delicious meals, luxurious spa treatments and medical appointments - it's every animal's dream. But Marty is tired of the zoo routine and wants to be set free in the wild.
Madagascar - Wild Sweet Wild
When a band of penguins escape from the zoo, Marty devises a plan of his own to take a walk on the wild side of New York City. When his friends discover him missing, they break out of the zoo to bring him back. But, they all end up getting captured, kicked out of the zoo and shipped off in crates to Africa! The plotting penguins however, sabotage the ship and the animals get stranded on an exotic island of Madagascar. That's when they realize that it really is a jungle out there!
Madagascar - Savage Slip-Ups
Everybody knows lions eat zebras - and that's exactly what happens in Madagascar. After recovering from culture shock in the natural world, Alex's animal instincts start to emerge and he finds himself wanting to eat Marty! It's about this time that the flick drags a bit, but the Madagascar locals - in the form of lemurs who like to party all night long - bring back the fun and laughs.
