Synopsis


Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
Hopelessly stranded on the remote shores of Madagascar, the New Yorkers hatch a plan to get back to Central Park that instead finds them soaking up sun in the picturesque plains of Africa. Madagascar may be a nice place to visit, but for the gang of animals who spent most of their lives in New York, there is truly no place like home. After discovering the remnants of a crashed airplane, the penguins quickly set about making the repairs needed to get the craft airborne again. When the plane finally takes to the sky, it begins to look like it's only a matter of time before Alex the Lion (voice of Ben Stiller) and friends are soaring over New York Harbor. Unfortunately the penguins weren't the aviation experts they claimed to be, and before long the crew is coming in for a crash-landing in the untamed plains of Africa. Now, as the animals reared in the safety of the zoo come into contact with their decidedly wild counterparts for the very first time, they get a better feel for their roots while marveling over the differences between life in the concrete jungle and life on the world's second largest continent. Of course, while there's plenty to love about wandering the open plains, romantic rivalries and the risk of running into dangerous poachers soon begin to outweigh the joys of some long-overdue family reunions. With some particularly heavy cases of homesickness causing hearts to weigh heavy, the group gradually starts to wonder whether they'll ever find their way back home. Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sacha Baron Cohen, Cedric the Entertainer, and Andy Richter lend their voices to this animated sequel that re-teams original Madagascar co-directors Eric Darnell and Tom McGrath. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    I tip my hat as might say to the whole production crew and Animator's for not having produced a flop of a sequel. I have watched the movie several times and seem to see something I missed in previous showing's to add further to my enjoyment. If you miss this one don't waste time get up and as a story line "I like to shake my booty", buy it today.

    Recently saw this movie on Blu-ray and it turned out to be better than I'd heard. It's much funnier than the 1st (even though that was good too) and had plenty of great characters that keep the movie moving the whole time. I don't want to give anything away, but this is a great family movie.

    My 1 year old loves Madafascar 3. It is the only movie he will watch without fussing so I got himadagascar 2. Though he enjoys it more than any of the Madagascar alternatives he still prefers 3. Madagascar 2 is a good story. Maybe the best of the bunch.
