Madagascar (2005)

I took Daniel to see Madagascar (2005) on his birthday. Dreamworks’ latest 3D animated film is quite funny at times but it doesn’t come close to The Incredibles in my opinion. It’s much better than Shark Tale but seems lacking in terms of story and animation.

There are a tonne of gags that rely on references to a number of films such as Castaway, American Beauty and Planet of the Apes. The kids will understand the jokes at one level while the adults will laugh at the references to films or other forms of popular culture.

My favourite character was King Julian the Lemur, voiced by Sacha Baron Cohen, otherwise known as Ali-G. He’s absolutely hilarious and I guarantee that you’ll walk out of the theatre singing, “I Like to Move It”.
