When the first Madagascar movie came out my oldest baby was not even a year old. However, we bought the movie when it came out on video, and we still watch it to this day.
We also love Madagascar 2, and when we saw that there would be a 3rd we were anxiously waiting for it’s release on October 16th. So when we were offered a copy to review, and another to give away, we jumped at the chance!
I had to hide the package from the kids when it first came because I knew we wouldn’t be able to watch it that night and I didn’t want to torture them. It’s a good thing I hid it too, because once they watched me take it out of the package they were begging to see it. And when they saw the wig that came with it…? Let’s just say we had to make them take turns with it. Even dad got in on the fun!
So what is ‘Madagascar 3: Europe’s Most Wanted’ about?
Your favorite characters are back, in their most hilarious adventure yet! Alex, Marty, Melman and Gloria find themselves on-the-fun through Europe in this wildly entertaining and outrageous comedic adventure that film critics are calling “charming and very funny!”
With the fame-loving King Julien and the take-charge Penguins along for the ride, the whole crew joins the circus to escape Captain Dubois of Animal Control. Full of high-flying action and colorful new characters, it’s a MAD extravaganza everyone will love.
This movie didn’t disappoint. It was cute, funny, and entertaining for all of us. There is fun music, including the “Polka-dot Afro song” which my kids sing often. When it comes to that point in the movie, they’ll generally back it up when it’s over and watch it over again. There are some fun new characters that I loved too. It was fun for my kids to hear Martin Short’s voice as Stefano the sea lion. They love it when they recognize the voices of some of their favorite characters from other movies/shows they enjoy.
We are very picky when it comes to movies for our kids, but this is one that we’ve approved and allow them to watch. I’ll admit it’s probably been watched far more often around here since we got it than I should allow, but they love it and so do I!
