Madagascar 2: Move It, Move It to a Top Film of the Year

"Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa" is one of the best films I've seen this year. It features our four favorite New York zoo animals -- Alex, Marty, Gloria and Melman -- finding themselves on yet another epic adventure in a foreign land. This time our friends are stranded in Africa, which at first seems like a wasteland, but soon becomes a long lost paradise.

I really enjoyed watching this film and I highly recommend it, especially to parents with young children or brothers and sisters with younger siblings. The film had a lot of moments that I even found amusing, which is a bit of a surprise because I'm more into the darker side of humor. I can't comment much on the animation of the film because it wasn't really anything too special; it was pretty basic animation. Although I did find myself forgetting that it was animals in the movie, not humans. The acting in the movie was good enough to make me forget that. I found the movie to be a great success with great acting, a great storyline and very funny moments. I would definitely say that it's worth the money to go see it.
