A pack of not-so-wild animals experience some serious culture shock when they move from the Big Apple to the Mighty Jungle in this computer-animated comedy. Alex (voice of Ben Stiller) is a lion who enjoys a charmed life as one of the leading attractions at a zoo in New York City's Central Park. While Alex and his pals Marty the Zebra (voice of Chris Rock), Gloria the Hippo (voice of Jada Pinkett Smith), and Melman the Giraffe (voice of David Schwimmer) are happy with their lot in life, they occasionally have a certain curiosity about the outside world, and when the zoo's penguins decide to make a break for it, Marty follows them into the city. Alex, Gloria, and Melman set out to find Marty before he gets into trouble, but they're a bit too late, and soon the zookeepers have decided that the animals are restless and need to be returned to the wild. Soon the critters find themselves living on the coast of Madagascar, where they quickly discover they aren't quite suited for living in the wild. Madagascar also features the voice talents of Cedric the Entertainer, Andy Richter, and Sacha Baron Cohen.~Mark Deming
I original purchased this movie when it was first released but lost it. Madagascar provided my child years of entertainment and is her favorite movie. She had been begging me for a long time to buy her the movie again. So one day while at Best Buy she asked me to buy it. The price was right & it was in stock so I did. No disappointment here! It's still a great movie for the entire family. I love shopping at Best Buy because they always have what I want!
This review is from Madagascar [Includes Digital Copy] [Blu-ray/DVD]

Rated 3 out of 5 stars
Great for the kids
Owned for 1 year when reviewed.
Great for the kids. You may want to shop for the Madagascar 1-3 movie pack instead though as it is a better value.
This movie is entertaining enough to watch once or twice. The penguins are my favorite characters as is the case for probably most people which is why they enjoyed their own spin-off movie and TV series.
I was very pleased by the video quality of this disk, again Dreamworks does not disappoint. Its not on the same level as Kung Fu Panda, but this movie is a few years older. The special features are good, and the penguin short is fantastic (again the video and audio was SUPERB), just as good if not better than those Pixar shorts. The movie itself is great, the characters are very likable and funny, and the voice acting is perfect This is definitely a disk I would recommend to add to your collection as it would serve as a great demo disk for video and audio.
It is one of my favorite animated movies.
