  • The film is a relentlessly loud and ultimately exhausting exercise only partially leavened by the usual heavy doses of wisecracking humor and visual gags. show more

  • Kids under 6 will dig it - though the alligators and wildebeests might scare them. Certainly they scared this groan-up. show more

  • This is the third animated feature in a row (after "Curious George" and "Ice Age: The Meltdown") which aims at children and has no serious ambition to be all things to all people, i.e., their parents. But for kids, it's OK. show more
