Madagascar ★★

I was disappointed by this movie: based on what I had heard about it, I expected more than this. The animation is really good and the voice work is okay, but the storyline, pretty weak and bland as it is, is not so okay. "Madagascar" has some funny moments—the penguins come to mind—and I have no problem admitting that I laughed a few times and giggled now and then. Ultimately, however, this is a movie that is fairly quickly forgotten.
