One of the best animated movies ever! It's my children's favorite, and I have to agree with them on this one.

Despite Madagascar's formulaic tendencies, it's a formula that works, so parents are urged to sit back, relax and enjoy -- the kids surely will. Full Review

USA Today
The thin story, which sometimes feels like a series of one-liners strung together, is wisely kept short. But the gags are funny and the characters endearing. Full Review

Madagascar arouses no sense of wonder, except insofar as you wonder, as you watch it, how so much talent, technical skill and money could add up to so little. Full Review
Dennis Harvey
Pleasant, if mediocre family fare. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Eventually, it had to happen: a computer-animated dud. Full Review
