Madagascar (DVD Animated)
Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Cedric
It's all happening at the Central Park Zoo in New York City, especially for Alex the pampered lion (Ben Stiller), Melman the hypochondriac giraffe (David Schwimmer), and Gloria the maternal hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith). But Marty the zebra (Chris Rock), experiencing a midlife crisis on his tenth birthday, wants to follow his wanderlust toâ¦Connecticut(!), where -- he has been erroneously informed -- the wild things roam free. He bolts for the train station, and his three friends escape from the zoo to retrieve him -- a gambit that is misinterpreted as a cry to return to their natural habitat. But a funny thing happens on their way to a Kenyan preserve. Thanks to a quartet of escape-happy penguins, they are rerouted to the eponymous island, where carnivore Alex discovers the circle of life does not include being brought steaks every night by human handlers. Will he revert to his basic instincts? Madagascar boasts a menagerie of scene-stealing supporting characters, including Sacha Baron Cohen (Da Ali G Show) as a goofy lemur king and Cedric the Entertainer as his second in command. But waddling away with the movie are Mort (Andy Richter), Skipper, Kowalski, Private, and Rico as the penguin commandos who talk like the Dead End Kids. So auspicious was their screen debut that they were immediately signed for their own short subject, The Madagascar Penguins in a Christmas Caper, which premiered theatrically with Wallace and Grommit in the Curse of the Were-Rabbit and is happily included on this DVD. Madagascar follows the Shrek template: A-list voice cast; irreverent humor; too-hip-for-the-playroom references (HMOs, author Tom Wolfe) for the adults; and a rockin' soundtrack for the kids. The poop jokes? Come on, theyâre foreverybody. Alex's dilemma adds some bite to this culture-shock comedy (and may frighten little ones). If kids loved Madagascar in theaters, they will go wild for this DVD, which comes packed with interactive games, activities, and projects. The penguins even contribute audio commentary!
