Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa
Your favorite castaways are back – still together and still lost! One of the top movies of the year, DreamWorks Animation’s Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa is “even better than the first!” (Mark Hyman, FOX-TV). You’ll laugh out loud as this outrageous comedy takes you on an African adventure like no other.
The sequel to the animated movie Madagascar gives more of everything audiences loved in the first movie: More of the penguins; more of Julian, king of the lemurs; more musical bits of classic rock; and many, many more lions, zebras, hippos, and giraffes. In the first film, a quartet of coddled zoo animals found themselves shipwrecked on the island of Madagascar in a misguided effort to return them to the wild. InMadagascar: Escape 2 Africa, a failed attempt to fly back to New York maroons Alex the lion (voiced by Ben Stiller), Marty the zebra (Chris Rock), Gloria the hippo (Jada Pinkett Smith), and Melman the giraffe (David Schwimmer) in an animal preserve on the African continent, accompanied by the four deranged penguins and the lunatic lemur king (deliriously voiced by Sacha Baron Cohen, Borat). By wild coincidence, this is where Alex was born--and where his father is still the alpha lion, and where his malevolent uncle seeks to take over (let's call this an homage to The Lion King). The other beasts have their own story arcs, but really it's all an excuse for daffy comic bits. Though the result is disposable, it's also entirely entertaining. The action sequences pop with dizzying spectacle; though some jokes are mainstream fodder, more often they're surprisingly quirky and engagingly oddball. This is the best kind of cotton candy filmmaking--it dissolves into nothing, but it's oh-so-sweet to the taste. --Bret FetzerSee all Editorial Reviews

Madagascar 2 is probably as good as M1 but the storyline takes awhile to get into and develops better at the end. But then, I am a grandparent, perhaps I expect too much. Tom & Jerry remain my favorites.
They did a good job in keeping continuity with the characters introduced in Madagascar 1.
The penguins are funny - The Penguin dvd with the Penguins is funny, but, most of the dvd is a Wild Kingdom program - the grandkids were quick to point out the Penguin segment has already been shown on TV. For the money - get the single Madagascar 2 movie.
