“This place is crackalacking!”


Yes, that’s right, today we’re on a visit to the animated world of Madagascar, the tale of four zoo animals who unexpectedly find themselves in the Wild.

All right, I know it’s a children’s film, but it’s funny, OK? There’s the hypochondriac giraffe Melman, voiced by David Schwimmer (aka Ross Geller, if you’re a Friends fan); sassy hippo Gloria; excitable zebra Marty; and dancing lion Alex. Oh, and everyone’s favourite character, the hilarious lemur King Julian (“I like to move it, move it!”).

It’s a short, cheerful story, cleverly animated if a little cliched, with a nice message of friendship. It’s one of those children’s stories that can amuse an adult, and those are rare enough.
