Synopsis


Madagascar
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, Rovi

    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.

    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!

    My kids enjoy this movie. I ended up returning this movie though. I was not sure that the product came with an iTunes digital copy to put on out iPad for the kids to watch on long car rides. I ended up just purchasing a digital copy from the iTunes store though. Even though this item says it comes with a "digital copy" unless it says it comes with an iTunes copy as well I don't believe it includes an iTunes copy unless it explicitly says so. I dropped my review to 4 stars for this reason as my kids love this movie otherwise.

    Immense influences from the Looney Tunes style of comedic pacing and character design is cleverly implemented into a whacky adventure about zoo animals with a New York attitude being tossed into the wild. Good jokes for kids and adults alike. Although Dreamworks turned this property into an expansive franchise, this is the best entry of them all.

    Funny Movie

    This is a very funny movie and I thought the creators did an excellent job. Anyone at any age can watch this movie and enjoy it. It's a funny cartoon movie about zoo animals living in NYC, find themselves stuck in Madagascar. We see all their hilarious troubles on this wild island and get a good laugh pretty often. I'd definately recommend this movie.

    This has become our go-to movie for our 2 year old son. He loves the interaction between animals and the music that the movie employs. He even loves Steve Carell's intro to the DVD. :) I'd recommend this DVDto anyone young or old but especially to parents of small children. Clean. Funny. Engaging. Worth your time and money.

Once you get people to sit down and watch it, everyone will love it! Picture is a stellar 1080p and you can tell the difference from the original dvd version! outstanding! recommend it for everyone!

    My 3 kids love it!! I just bought this for my grandson, who is 2 years old. My kids would watch this over, and over again. My kids are 6, & 10, & 12 years old. At least it keeps them amused, it's nothing bad, and you know what there watching. I sure hit for the holidays, and for the young ones who have never seen it before!!
