Popcorn time: Madagascar 3 Europe's Most Wanted
Voices: Ben Stiller, Chris Rock, David Schwimmer, Jada Pinkett Smith, Sacha Baron Cohen, etc.
The movie continues from Madagascar 2 where Alex the lion (Stiller), Marty the zebra (Rock), Melman the Giraffe (Schwimmer) and his girlfriend Gloria the hippo (Smith) are in Africa.
Fearing that they are wasting their life away there, Alex suggests that they go to Monte Carlo and get the penguins to get them back to New York city.
There they crossed paths with Monte Carlo Animal Control officer Captain Chantel DuBois (Frances McDormand) who sets her eyes on having their heads mounted on her wall.
To escape Dubois, they pretended to be circus animals so that they can board the circus train with Stefano the sea lion (Martin Short), Gia the jaguar (Jessica Chastain), and Vitaly the tiger (Bryan Craston).
Meanwhile, King Julien (Cohen) falls in love with Sonya the bear (Frank Welker).
With Dubois in hot pursuit of the animals, will they make it back to New York in one piece?
It's a fun movie for both kids and adults, totally entertaining! Kudos to the scriptwriters for the witty lines and jokes that will have you roaring with laughter. I would love to watch it again.
To be frank, I thought nothing of Katy Perry's Firework prior to watching this animation but the song was really apt for the circus performance scene. Love it!
